“Using Cyara’s automated suite for our contact center virtualization project significantly lowered our testing costs and, more importantly, reduced the risk of customer service impact as we made changes and moved to one virtual platform,” says Graham Cronin, head of network services for NAB.
Cronin likens such an infrastructure overhaul to “conducting maintenance on a jumbo jet while it's still in the air.” The business units must continue to operate as needed and customer experience goals must be met.
NAB used Cyara’s suite of solutions for pre-and post-migration, benchmarking existing customer experience and documenting and managing application and systems changes across 36 different contact centers and as they were consolidated to one virtual system. NAB went from nine hardwired, phone-based networks to a completely web-based, virtualized system with Genesys contact center software running over a Cisco IP infrastructure and operating as a single, virtual platform.
“Our business stakeholders were comfortable using Cyara because of what Cyara revealed to them -- invaluable information about their own customer experiences,”
I like Cyara because the business likes Cyara,” says Cronin.
“Cyara is proud to be a part of a project of this magnitude and significance,”
NAB previously used Cyara in 2009 when they first introduced speech recognition and voice biometrics and is currently using Cyara for ongoing testing, simulation and monitoring.
“For the move to our VCC (Virtual Contact Center) platform, Cyara was used for pre- and post-migration benchmarking,”
NAB also used Cyara for load and functional testing of systems and applications and used Cyara Outbound Testing™ to test outbound collection calls made by one of the business units during the transition to the VCC platform.
“Being able to simulate and do forward-looking testing in terms of end-to-end systems was critical given the quite complex group of technologies that we put together,” says Cronin. “And Cyara Outbound and their team helped tweak the system to fit our environment and the collections business in particular.”
