Imagine investing a significant amount of money into a digital transformation program that your employees can’t comprehend, or that is so disconnected from the user experience that it causes more problems than it solves. It’s crucial to prioritize user experience when reinventing processes or undergoing a digital transformation, as failing to do so is a recipe for disaster. This is especially important in managing employee frustration with poorly designed processes and customer dissatisfaction with the outcomes.
The era of digital transformation, which equated to robotic process automation (RPA), is long gone. Nowadays, creative problem-solving techniques combined with process mining can be used to gain a comprehensive understanding of processes and select appropriate technologies to achieve desired business objectives. While RPA remains a critical component, a successful transformation results in an “aha” moment.
Firstsource’s Intelligent Automation team has had many of these “aha” moments with customers.
Our mailroom operations are crucial for delivering prompt responses to our Health Plans customers’ end users regarding appeals, claims, payments, and various other documents. To efficiently handle the high volume of mail, we rely on solutions that incorporate low-code apps, process automation, intelligent document processing, analytics, and cost-effective cloud-based solutions. These tools allow our associates to process over 30,000 mails in less than an hour.
In contact center operations, customers can often find themselves to be put on hold while an associate seeks assistance from a colleague. This is sometimes necessary because organizations may limit the access of their contact center staff for compliance or technical reasons. For instance, a telecom company may not want its agents to troubleshoot complex technical issues for customers. Over 15,000 Firstsource contact center associates leverage the power of RPA and API solutions in our most extensive automation deployment. Bots troubleshoot complex technical issues and provide resolutions which are relayed back by agents to the customer, saving 1000s of hours each day.

Our platform-based solutions for patient engagement, loan servicing, and receivables management addressing specific industry challenges leverage automation, artificial intelligence, and analytics to solve complex problems that deliver significant business impact for our customers.
