Winner: Holland America Line

Holland America Line, part of Carnival Corporation and an extensive family of travel and leisure brands, uses a range of Verint solutions to enhance the experience of its customers and employees alike. With Verint analytics technology, it gauges process effectiveness and how well staff handle interactions to ensure customers and employees enjoy smoother experiences. Holland America Line also uses Verint solutions to analyze calls about customer experiences on the company website, identifying improvement areas that in turn yield faster, more effective customer self-service and significant cost reductions. Verint Workforce Engagement tools—including workforce management, quality management and performance management with custom KPI scorecards—support the work-at-home model for its Seattle contact center. This makes it possible for the company to motivate, manage and interact with employees just as if they are working on site. Overall cost savings are matched by other benefits, such as a happier workforce that delivers positive experiences for customers.

Highly Commendable: Navy Federal Credit Union

With the desire to serve its more than seven million members even more efficiently, Navy Federal Credit Union uses Verint Workforce Management to automate what had previously been manual scheduling processes—with impressive results. The solution has introduced newfound visibility into staffing levels and expected performance, as well as staffing needs for expected future growth. As a result, the organization’s help desk is experiencing its lowest wait time since it began measuring the performance indicator. The credit union also has decreased manual workload for leadership, decreased agent overtime by 12 percent, reduced monthly reporting time by 60 percent and increased overall productivity. Most importantly, it has increased customer satisfaction by three percent, raising this metric to 98 percent overall.
