The customer was witnessing substantial disruptive changes in their marketplace owing to a continuous shift in their business model to meet the needs of the digital world. The advent of digital assets such as smartphones and tablets and the ever-increasing need to provide a superior digital experience to consumers have spurred RCM companies to significantly accelerate their IT transformation initiatives. Due to the absence of digital strategy, there was no personalization of services to users. Coforge applied its unique Digital Workplace strategy to encompass a series of solutions giving our customers a leading edge in the market, delivering next-gen experience, and boost employee productivity.
About the Client
The client is an American Revenue Cycle Management company servicing hospitals, health systems, and physician groups across the US
In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the client wanted to enable work from home operations across different locations in India. However, due to the several constraints that were present because of the nature of the pandemic and the lockdown that followed, its existing service provider was unable to offer the necessary workplace infrastructure support required to jump-start activities, mobilize and optimize operations, and deliver services that ensured high levels of customer satisfaction. Also, because there was minimal support from the existing service provider, it was imperative to ensure continuity of workplace services while transition took place from one service provider to the other. In addition to this, the customer had:
- A highly volatile environment with 2.8 times fluctuation in SD contact volume.
- Consistently failing on agreed SLAs
- User CSAT rate is very low at 40%
- Avg. age of incident at Service Desk is 8 days while the “Ticket to Call” ratio is approx. 5 times.
- Only 50% resolution rate at Service Desk taking a toll on user productivity.
- Traditional service and support with no self-service and automation
- IT services are not business-aligned e.g. Business Critical Users work 24x7 while the Deskside support works only 8x5.
- India houses more than 40% of the client staff but there is no phone number published by IT for India. Employees have to make US calls to connect with the Service Desk front-end of the existing system was too primitive with no proper workflow for tracking the customer onboarding journey and thus failed to offer a good user experience.
