The goal of the HGS DigiCX suite of services is to help people get the right answers fast," said Andrew Kokes, Senior Vice President, Global Marketing. "Ninety percent of customer interactions that come to the contact center begin online, so the DigiWEB offering, starting with self-service and intelligently pivoting to assisted support, is essential in today's marketplace. Awards like these reaffirm HGS's reputation as a leader in this arena." HGS's award-winning DigiWEB has a proven track record of saving time and money and improving customer experience. A leading consumer electronics manufacturer employed DigiWEB to help improve their website experience and manage operational and IT resources. Through the platform, coupled with HGS's Digital Natural Assist (DNA) and Smart Channel Selector, HGS helped the company solve 97 percent of customer inquiries online with no agent interaction, by guiding them to the best channel for resolution (e.g. a how-to video, step-by-step guide, virtual assistant chat, etc).  Employing DigiWEB with HGS's full-service DigiCX offering enables seamless pivoting from automated to real-time agent interaction, guiding customers efficiently over a variety of channel options to the right answers to their questions. The result is a 70 percent reduction in operation costs.
