Verint Partner, Strategic Products and Services, Helps Drive Customer Success and Support of Company's VoC Program
Vovici™, a Verint® Systems (NASDAQ: VRNT) company and leading provider of Voice of the Customer and enterprise feedback management (EFM) solutions, today announced that KARL STORZ has implemented its Enterprise Feedback Management software as a cornerstone to the company's new Voice of the Customer (VoC) program. Strategic Products and Services (SPS) is bringing further value to KARL STORZ through value-added services designed to help achieve its business goals.
KARL STORZ is committed to the production and sale of medical instruments and devices. With customer loyalty and retention at the forefront, the global organization set out to create a VoC program that would evolve its traditional model of capturing, analyzing and acting on customer feedback. Adding Verint's Vovici Enterprise Feedback Management™ software to the organization's current workforce optimization (WFO) solution supports its focus on better understanding customers' wants, needs and expectations, and its ability to apply that intelligence to enable more effective business decisions.
"Our new VoC program will transcend the company from manufacturing to distribution," says Charlie Wilhelm, president and chief operating officer, KARL STORZ. "It's one of the few major initiatives we have that is directly related to impacting the customer. We don't ever want to lose sight of that-we have to stay focused on our customers and their successes."
KARL STORZ invested in Verint's EFM solution in April 2012. The comprehensive offering-which includes survey and panel functionality, as well as consulting services-supports key elements that make up the organization's VoC program. These include such aspects as improving operational efficiencies and becoming more "in tune" with customer requirements, as well as deepening customer loyalty, expanding its customer base and increasing profitability.
"Through our VoC program, we no longer have to worry about which potential issues are lurking in our customers' minds or guess which ones are the most important to them. Our program is designed to help us harness the power of customer feedback and insight to improve customer satisfaction, loyalty and retention," concludes Marian Favors, director of customer support, KARL STORZ.
Verint's Vovici Enterprise Feedback Management solution helps generate insight and measure the impact of how a feedback program can improve loyalty, reduce operational costs and standardize feedback efforts across an organization. Using the solution's panel management functionality, organizations can centralize responses, as well as data from other systems, to create more personalized surveys, interact more intelligently with customers, and create more robust, detailed reports that can segment intelligence by product, service and/or line of business to tell the full story about customers' journeys and experiences.
