Westpac New Zealand has been helping New Zealanders find the right financial solutions to suit their lives since 1861. With more than 200 branches, nearly 500 ATMs, and more than 1.5 million customers, they are one of the nation’s largest banks.
Before moving to Genesys, the Westpac NZ contact center was a legacy on-premises platform that was prone to outages and very expensive to maintain. The contact center had limited functionality—with no callback, recording or ability to customize. Tied to legacy technology and unable to take advantage of innovations, ongoing technology failures were directly hindering the Westpac NZ customer experience vision. And it was damaging contact center staff morale.
After switching to the Genesys PureCloud platform, Westpac NZ has improved customer experience and net promoter scores, increased call flow by 100% and moved away from 39 siloed contact centers—broken down by region—to a single virtual contact center.
“We wanted to zig while the world was zagging, and the truth is not many banks are using true cloud hosted telephony platforms.”
