HOBOKEN, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NICE (Nasdaq: NICE) today announced that Whakarongorau Aotearoa – New Zealand Telehealth Services has implemented NICE’s CXone cloud-native platform to transform its contact center operations and deliver frictionless customer experiences to support the health of the New Zealand public.
Whakarongorau Aotearoa is a social enterprise that manages the New Zealand government-funded national telehealth services across seven digital channels as part of the National Telehealth Services Contract, operating several contact centers.
After growing its operations significantly throughout the COVID-19 pandemic to respond to the needs of the public, Whakarongorau Aotearoa realized it needed a more agile and flexible solution to handle its operational needs. To move into its next phase of maturity and to better respond to strategic opportunities and community needs digitally, Whakarongorau Aotearoa selected NICE and its partner Converged Communication Network Applications (CCNA) to transition its contact center environment to a mature, cloud-based contact center solution that delivers greater scalability to rapidly respond to changing business requirements and adapt to evolving public health concerns.
NICE CXone enables Whakarongorau Aotearoa to meet its immediate needs. As Whakarongorau Aotearoa operates the centralized platform for New Zealand’s National Telehealth Services, it provides significant reporting requirements to the New Zealand government. CXone delivers comprehensive reporting capabilities that allow the organization to achieve greater insight into its services at a granular level, providing Whakarongorau Aotearoa the ability to further streamline its operations. Additionally, CXone allows Whakarongorau Aotearoa to continue to evolve and deliver to more channels in which it can better support the New Zealand public.
Mike Mulvaney, Director of Technology Services, Whakarongorau Aotearoa – New Zealand Telehealth Services, said, “The health of the New Zealand public is of the utmost concern for Whakarongorau Aotearoa. NICE CXone enables us to rapidly respond to changing public health events, seamlessly scale the supporting workforce as needed without disruption to service users and will empower us to provide better service to reach even more New Zealanders.”
Darren Rushworth, President, NICE International, said, “CXone will provide Whakarongorau Aotearoa the ability to seamlessly move into its next phase of maturity and grow with the organization as it continues to evolve. CXone will allow them to support New Zealanders effectively and create exceptional customer experiences.”
