Westpac New Zealand

Building an elite service organisation
with the Genesys Cloud platform

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 centre was a legacy on-premises platform that was prone to outages and very expensive to maintain. The contact centre had limited functionality—with no callback, recording or ability to customise. 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 centre staff morale.

After switching to the Genesys Cloud platform, Westpac NZ  has improved customer experience and net promoter scores, increased call flow by 100% and moved away from 39 siloed contact centres—broken down by region—to a single virtual contact centre.


  • Improved customer experience and NPS
  • Increased call flow by 100%
  • Moved from 39 siloed contact centres to a single virtual contact centre
  • Reduced infrastructure costs
  • Reduced call transfers
  • Fast deployment of contact centre solution


  • Eliminate aging, outdated and costly contact centre software
  • Improve overall experience internally and externally

We wanted to zig while the world was zagging, and the truth is not many banks are using true cloud hosted telephony platforms.
