Proving the effectiveness
of Arise Continuity solutions
When a travel industry leader faced hurricane headed straight for its contact center, the Arise® Platform was there to carry the load. Within minutes, Service Partners were handling the redirected calls, scaling up over the following hours to deliver uninterrupted, quality customer experiences.
In 2017, Hurricane Irma wreaked havoc on the southeastern United States and the travel and hospitality industry, leaving many travelers stranded and in need of customer support. The client's brick-and-mortar centers was was in the path of the category 4 storm.
The wise decision was made to shut down their locations and send all their employees home for their safety. The client requested over 14,000 additional hours of call time in less than 48 hours' notice to cover all lines of business that would need to be picked up by Service Partners using the Arise® Platform.
Arise quickly consulted with the client and kicked into action.
Arise immediately notified Service Partners using the platform via email and text of need for additional hours required. Arise responded to additional hours within 10 minutes. Service Partners outside of the strike zone were given preference to absorb the hours.
The Arise® Platform enabled such rapid flex that the client was able to maintain operations of all lines of business with no downtime or interruptions.
Service Partners who typically book and reserve for the client also took on customer service calls to handle the load. In lightning-fast time, an additional 11,000 calls more than usual were handled through the Arise® Platform. Mission accomplished.
The unparalleled flex capacity of the Arise® Platform ensured that all calls into the clients shuttered contact center were handled with the highest level of quality and satisfaction on the day of the storm.
