DXI originally supplied its cloud-based contact centre solution EasyContactNow™ to Sky’s employee IT Service Desk Centre. Part of Sky’s ‘Believe in Better’ philosophy, the deployment demonstrated within a very short period of time improved productivity, increased analyst efficiency and interoperability capabilities with existing systems.
The intuitive EasyContactNow solution, which was championed by the Service Desk management team led by Jack Diamond, Sky’s Head of Infrastructure, as a replacement for an on premise system has enabled the service desk team of 30 to handle over 10,000 calls per month more efficiently, and deliver the high standard of support needed to meet the daily IT requirements of Sky’s 30,000 employees worldwide. Together the teams from Sky and DXI won the Service Desk Institute’s ‘Best Implementation of an ITSM Solution’ Award in April 2015.
The success of the original implementation led to interest from other departments within Sky keen to benefit from DXI’s approach to cloud communications and help them to achieve their own efficiency and performance improvement goals.
The Sky HR department, known as Sky People+, wanted to improve the service that they provide to employees. Sky People+ has approximately 70 HR agents using EasyContactNow, addressing the needs of 30,000 employees from installation engineers through to sales people.
As a verified, secure supplier, DXI already connected to the Sky network was ideally positioned to respond when the HR department was looking for a new solution. The department uses Peoplesoft as its HR system of record and Salesforce for case management. By working closely with Sky’s People+ team DXI was able to ensure a thorough understanding of their requirements, winning the business ahead of larger competitors. The key factors were:
Phase two of the EasyContactNow implementation involves full integration with the Salesforce case management system. The anticipation is that downtime and disruption will be minimal with no additional agent training needed due to the intuitive aspects of the system.
DXI delivered the solution on time, going live as planned at the beginning of May 2015. There were no significant issues during the implementation despite this being a major new Sky initiative in the advancement of HR services.
Prior to launch DXI was able to proactively empower the key users of the system with training on how to utilise and manage the system, ensuring they could get the full benefits immediately. This process identified some additional feature requests from the users, which would further enhance productivity. Although these were not included within the original proposal, DXI was able to deliver the additional functionality, namely ‘Idle Time’ which allows the agent time following the call to close off any notes before they are identified to the system as available for the next call.
Sky Switchboard has also taken advantage of the agile approach of EasyContactNow. Their project involved updating the existing legacy technology that was outdated, inflexible and expensive to run and no longer meeting the needs of the business.
Challenges for the project:
Ensuring the switchboard operators were involved in the process rather than sidelined during the integration was an important part of the project.
Benefits of the new solution
Change for the better!
The Sky Switchboard implementation has demonstrated the benefits of well managed change, where new technology has enhanced the working environment, and reduced the day-to-day workload of functional teams.
DXI is now recognised as a valued go-to partner at Sky for flexible solutions that support their business goals and aspirations. DXI has achieved this reputation from a solid track record of delivering solutions that meet the requirements of differing functions and departments within the SKY enterprise and continues to receive internal endorsement from system users and project team participants.
