CEGA Optimises Service For Travel Insurance Customers

CEGA Optimises Service For Travel Insurance Customers

CEGA Group has implemented a fully automated workforce management system for its travel insurance claims and medical screening call handlers. The move supports CEGA's continued growth and optimises call volume forecasting and staff scheduling: benefiting travel insurers and policyholders alike.

The state-of-the-art system, Teleopti, enables call handlers to organise shifts quickly and remotely, and their managers to take full, automated, control of predicted call volumes and commensurate staffing levels - if necessary from a mobile device, in real-time.  All this helps to increase staff engagement, save time and ensure that call handler availability serves fluctuating call volumes.

Steve Marshall, head of claims and medical risk assessment at CEGA Group, comments, "Since using Teleopti, we have noticed improvements on many levels. Our ability to forecast call volumes accurately and use agent time efficiently and cost-effectively is outstanding.  Our service level agreements (SLAs) are now more stable than ever and our call abandonment rates have halved: maximising customer and client satisfaction.

"Looking to the future, we plan to use Teleopti to schedule staff dealing with claims correspondence via email and Web Chat: just another example of our proactive approach to providing the best customer service in today's changing global travel risk landscape."

Nick Smith, UK & Ireland business manager at Teleopti comments, "Our workforce management technology offers fast growth organisations such as CEGA the opportunity to create high-performing contact centres staffed with highly motivated agents.  Automation and real-time capabilities support smarter forecasting, yield tangible time and cost savings and help drive meaningful service improvements which means an improved employee and customer experience."
