The Challenge

A leading Business Process Services company in Europe, employing over 15,000 staff with global reach, encountered significant operational challenges servicing their top-tier airline clients. The operations teams were only meeting 50% of the Service Level Agreements (SLAs), posing a serious risk of contract non-renewal.

This situation threatened not only the service provider's revenue but also the airline's reputation due to subpar customer service.

Attempted Solution before Scout

2,000 hours

requested for workshops, adding to team stress and attrition
A SWAT team was appointed to rectify this problem. Despite deploying a process mining solution and conducting manual 'discovery workshops' to decipher the team's work patterns, these efforts were insufficient. The process mining tool took too long to implement and failed to provide a clear view of operations.

Moreover, the workshops demanded roughly 2,000 hours from the already stretched teams, exacerbating stress and attrition issues.

Scout to “find and fix”

Step 1: Find

Scout unveiled critical insights within two weeks:

The front-office team spent just 45% of their time on primary tasks

With the rest consumed by inefficient processes, including time spent toggling between applications, fetching customer details and searching for flight options all from different systems and applications. This highlighted the major disconnected debt the organisation was carrying due to information silos.

Do You Know How Your Teams Get Work Done?

The back-office team dedicated 75% of their efforts to redundant tasks

With a lack of standardized communication templates affecting customer experience. This surprising statistic pointed to a significant work recall gap across the team, highlighting the disparity between the team’s understanding of how work is being done and how work was actually being done.

How AI connects interaction data to business outcomes

Your business generates billions of data points from human-machine interactions. Scout, our AI model, deciphers this interaction data to unveil what often remains unseen—the hidden challenges your teams face at work and how they affect business outcomes, whether it's cost optimization, revenue growth, customer or employee experience, or business continuity.

The AI then provides data-based recommendations for the necessary interventions to address these challenges, paving the way for improved outcomes.

We call this lighting up the ‘dark side of the moon’.
