We believe that SupportPoint will enable shorter handling times, reduce the time to train staff and increase our first contact resolution rates.
Melbourne, Australia and Burlington, MA (PRWEB) February 09, 2012
Panviva Pty. Inc. is pleased to announce today that HBF, which has supported the health and wellbeing of Western Australians for 70 years, has selected SupportPoint to optimise the efficiency of its call center and branch network, enhancing service for its members, providing support for staff, and lowering operational costs.
HBF, like other health insurers globally, has experienced increasing complexity in the sources and volumes of information required to support member queries. Staff often must look in multiple places in order to find the information, to answer those questions correctly. This can result in a member experience with room for improvement and lead to frustration for staff. SupportPoint is a unique, online technology that guides representatives through every type of query providing them with step-by-step instructions and presenting relevant product and procedural information at precisely the moment of need.
According to Guy Sanders, General Manager – Distribution “We had seen several demonstrations of SupportPoint and were aware of its growing use in health insurance call centers globally to support customer service representatives. That gave us confidence. We looked at other solutions, but none of them provided the guidance or the immediate access to answers that we needed. We believe that SupportPoint will significantly reduce the complexity of our information environment, enabling shorter handling times, reduced time to train staff and higher first point of resolution rates. Those add up to lowered costs, and higher levels of service for our members.”
“HBF’s vision for its community includes excellence not only in care, but also in services,” commented Ted Gannan, CEO and Co-Founder of Panviva. “In choosing SupportPoint, they are taking a very pragmatic approach to improving their frontline operations - enhancing the member experience very quickly while lowering costs. This is a very smart move, and one that more and more Panviva health insurer customers worldwide are making in these times of global economic caution and increasing pressure on bottom lines.”
