An Post

Diverting calls from the call center for a more
consistent and efficient customer journey

An Post was dealing with thousands of calls every year from customers seeking tracking information for premium service mail they had sent (or were expecting), as well as other basic enquiries.

The company turned to IVR technology and self-service solutions to address the challenges that  come from managing such a large number of such requests.

An Post chose Genesys App Automation Platform with DTMF options that kick in if a caller with an inquiry has an accent not recognised by the system. The solution also included the Genesys whisper technology, which allows an agent being passed a call to hear the information already supplied by the customer, eliminating the need for the customer to repeat the same information.

Even more importantly, Genesys gave An Post business users the ability to tweak and adapt the customer journey. This enables them to keep the customers happy and continuously increase productivity and efficiency.
