Benenden Health Selects Sabio Group to Support Migration to Cloud-based Contact Centre

Benenden Health, the leading, not-for-profit private healthcare provider, has selected Sabio Group to support its organisational transition to adopting a cloud-based contact centre.

The UK-based firm will introduce SMS, screen sharing and Workforce Engagement Management (WEM) capability through its adoption of Genesys Cloud.

The project will benefit Benenden Health members by giving them the ability to contact Benenden Health through new methods such as SMS and screen sharing.

As a Genesys partner for more than two decades, Sabio will manage Benenden Health’s migration as well as provide ongoing managed services and customer success.

Chris Mullins, Head of IT at Benenden Health, said: “We required a partner to help deliver a Cloud Communications Platform for our contact centre operation.

“Having worked with Sabio already, we were fully aware of their expertise, in the wider contact centre industry, and were confident that they would be best placed to both deliver and support our migration to a cloud-based contact centre infrastructure.

“Sabio understood our existing challenges and advised us on solutions to enable us to capitalise on future opportunities through the capability of the Genesys Cloud infrastructure. We have every faith that they will deliver an outstanding service for our agents and members, enhancing both the agent and customer experience and helping Benenden Health cement its position as the leading private healthcare provider in the UK.”

Benenden Health was founded in 1905 with the purpose of people joining together to provide medical care for others as and when required. Today, it offers high quality, private healthcare at the same affordable cost for everyone. This includes round-the-clock care such as 24/7 GP and Mental Health helplines, plus speedy access to services such as physiotherapy and medical treatment.

The new Genesys Cloud project between Sabio – recently named Genesys’ Partner of the Year in EMEA – and Benenden comes just months after Sabio was selected to deliver support for Benenden Health’s core customer engagement technology and Workforce Optimisation (WFO) platforms.

Benenden Health’s new Sabio solution powered by Genesys Cloud will assist the healthcare firm with managing its member journey; connecting members to the right advisor on first contact, regardless of channel, while also improving the employee experience for service delivery.

James Hughes, Group Head of Solutions at Sabio, said: “For more than 20 years, Sabio has been at the cutting edge of helping organisations support and maintain mission-critical contact centre and customer experience solutions, therefore being able to deliver best of breed customer experiences for our clients across multiple industries.

“We are absolutely delighted to have been chosen, once again, by Benenden Health – this time to support their journey to a cloud-based contact centre infrastructure through Genesys Cloud.”

James continued: “We understand the challenges faced within the healthcare sector in the UK, as well as the wider UK itself. Benenden Health’s mission is to improve the nation’s health, making life better for its members and wider society by taking the strain off the NHS.
“This is, therefore, an exciting project for us to work alongside an ambitious, and growing, healthcare firm, helping Benenden Health take those first steps towards a digital transformation of its contact centre operation and wider customer experience.”
