Medallia Helps Vitality Streamline Complex Customer Feedback Process
CX and employee experience (EX) company Medallia says its platform has been successfully leveraged by Vitality, the UK-based insurance and investments provider, to help streamline a complex customer feedback process, while also measuring and informing change in the newly launched Vitality car insurance business. Vitality is part of Discovery Limited, the South Africa-based financial services group and investment manager with more than 27 million members in 40-plus markets worldwide.
Recognizing the value of improving how it managed customer feedback, Vitality deployed Medallia Experience Cloud to collect, analyze, and act on customer signals on a single platform for greater efficiency. Vitality quickly adapted to a self-service approach, enabling the rollout of bespoke dashboards within two days of launching to immediately put insights into the hands of business decision-makers. The self-service functionality helped democratize customer insights throughout Vitality’s life, health, car insurance, and investments business, while also providing a tool for managers to improve coaching and for employees across the board to provide better service to customers.
As a result, 900 Vitality employees, ranging from executives to CX advisors, have been able to respond to customer inquiries, proactively reach out to 6,000 customers, and monitor and analyze 160,000 responses to live digital surveys. In Vitality’s car insurance business, positive resolution increased by 53% in less than 12 months, accompanied by significant improvement in several key business metrics, the company says. Vitality’s dedicated CX team has also attracted industry recognition, winning the CX Team of the Year Gold Award last year at the 2021 UKCX Awards.

NICE CXone is Selected by Australia’s Penrith City Council to Optimize Operations
NICE announced recently that its CXone cloud-native platform has been selected by Australia’s Penrith City Council to deliver enhanced CX with improved efficiencies across the council’s contact center operations. Located at the western fringe of the Sydney metropolitan area, Penrith City Council has 26 different business units that support more than 219,000 residents, and its CX contact center answers a broad range of inquiries pertaining to childcare centers, cemeteries, road maintenance, and waste services.
What the city council required was a customizable cloud-based, omnichannel solution that could be integrated with its existing systems and deliver more comprehensive reporting capabilities. Following a rigorous assessment process, the council engaged New Jersey-based NICE and its implementation partner, Generation-e, to help the council transition from an outdated telephony system to CXone.
Using NICE, the city council is now able to focus its activities on the types of calls and interactions being received by the contact center. CXone also enables the council’s contact center team to easily identify areas for improvement to help coaches and team leaders target training.
