Engaging with customers; the right service at the right time and in the right way
Engaging with customers is putting increasing demands on insurers to provide the right service at the right time, and in a consistent and repeatable way. It is critical that insurers are able to know how customers are reacting to the way they are being treated, and that they are assured they are getting the best possible service. One way of doing this is through process systems – something Guidewire knows a lot about, providing the industry’s leading platforms for doing this. Next, insurers want to be able to provide these processes to the right channel and in the right way – and this includes call center operatives who engage with customers every day. Getting this right, particularly during the moment of truth which is a claim, is mission critical. Get this wrong, and you will quickly see how in the Digital age that one bad experience rapidly is disseminated around the Web.

New, Gateway Portal and EVA
What Deloitte Digital and Guidewire have been working on over the past few months is a way to assist insurers in delivering a highly attuned service to their customers. They chose to do this using their Digital engagement product for the Call Centre – Gateway Portal for CSRs, in conjunction with the EVA customer interaction engine from Deloitte Digital.
EVA provides deep insights about a customer’s emotions and intentions, following a layered approach that combines multiple techniques for voice analysis such as signal processing, artificial intelligence, emotion recognition and psychology. This provides an integrated dashboard which guides the customer service representative, ensuring improved and more effective customer engagement.
