NICE has announced that ABN AMRO, a leading eurozone financial institution located in the Netherlands, has deployed NICE CXone to expand its digital capabilities across all touchpoints and provide a smarter, faster customer experience across the entire journey.
Alongside reseller, Infosys, NICE helped ABN AMRO migrate from on-premise to cloud with CXone in a quick, easy and risk-free way, aiding the bank’s wider digital transformation ambitions.
ABN AMRO required an upgrade that would simplify its infrastructure and address customers’ new digital needs. With thousands of employees working across various campuses and remotely, ABN AMRO also needed a solution that was easy to configure, agile, and had flexible capabilities that addressed the new hybrid working environment. Handling around five million calls annually, ABN AMRO integrated NICE’s unified platform, CXone, alongside attached solutions including CXone Workforce Management (WFM), CXone Audio Recording, and CXone Personal Connection, so that they work harmoniously with existing third-party CRM and chatbot solutions.
ABN AMRO required a cloud-based solution with a complete set of capabilities that allowed it to expand CX further than the capabilities of its previous vendor. By understanding the customer’s business needs, NICE and Infosys were able to provide a fast deployment without disrupting day-to-day activities. NICE CXone enhances the experience using purpose-built AI to provide smarter, faster service. In addition, CXone’s WFM capability simplifies workforce management activities by eliminating manual processes, proactively optimizing intraday schedules, and empowering agents and supervisors with automated workflows.
Looking forward, ABN AMRO is testing the use of social media by leveraging NICE CXone omnichannel chat capabilities to reach its customers more efficiently. Additionally, NICE CXone Personal Connection will be used to maximize agent utilization with increased connection rates and to control third-party systems. NICE CXone Recording provides secure, full-featured interaction recording to satisfy contact centre compliance and quality assurance needs.
Wandana Jankie, Contract Owner and IT Lead Customer Interaction, ABN AMRO, said, “With NICE CXone we have a place where the remote customer journey is orchestrated and comes to life. It allowed us to expand our digital capabilities and provide our customers with a better experience. The integration with NICE, together with our implementation partner Infosys, has been smooth with already 6000 users migrated and I could not be happier with the results.”
“We are pleased to have provided ABN AMRO with infrastructure capable of meeting today’s digital customer expectations as well as the bank’s digital ambitions of tomorrow,” said Darren Rushworth, President, NICE International. “With our scalable, cloud native platform and suite of best-of-breed solutions, ABN AMRO will be able to increase omnichannel capabilities and meet their customers at any touchpoint.”
