Honda Canada Finance Wins Leadership Award from Ventana Research for Verint Software Implementation
Company Enhances Service and Increases Customer Satisfaction with Verint Impact 360 Workforce Optimization
MELVILLE, N.Y., February 11, 2013— Verint® Systems Inc. (NASDAQ: VRNT) today announced that its customer Honda Canada Finance Inc.—a provider of financing and leasing options for Canadian consumers for Honda and Acura automobiles—has been honored with Ventana Research’s 2012 “Contact Center Excellence” Leadership award based on its use of Impact 360® Workforce Optimization™. The Ventana Research Leadership Awards program, presented in November 2012, highlights organizations that have advanced their business leadership by effectively utilizing people, processes, information and technology to realize the best outcomes.
“We congratulate Honda Canada Finance and Verint on receiving this prestigious award,” says Mark Smith, CEO and chief research officer, Ventana Research. “The results speak for themselves. Together, they have achieved real-world impact by optimizing customer satisfaction scores, and driving service levels and operational efficiencies. It truly is a showcase application of impactful contact center technologies.”
Honda Canada Finance selected the Verint software with specific goals in mind: to increase team efficiency, place an emphasis on customer satisfaction and maintain a consistent communications platform across multiple contact centers. In order to achieve this, the organization deployed Impact 360 Workforce Optimization (WFO) to obtain a unified approach for quality monitoring (QM) and call recording, workforce management, eLearning, performance management, enterprise feedback management and surveys. The enterprise WFO solution has delivered Honda Canada Finance an offering that provides real-time access to intelligence across its centers, enabling it to capture and analyze customer interactions, uncover trends, discover the root cause of employee and customer behaviors, and make faster, better decisions.
When Honda Canada Finance first started its quality program and tracking scorecards, associates averaged 64 percent. Today, QM scores exceed 90 percent—a big improvement and direct result of more focused training, process improvement and service levels.
"We are delighted to see Honda Canada Finance recognized for its dedicated focus on driving customer satisfaction and for the ways it has propelled technology and processes that support its commitment to service excellence,” comments Nancy Treaster, senior vice president and general manager, strategic operations, Verint Enterprise Intelligence Solutions™.
