Celcom Axiata Berhad Achieves 16-Point NPS Improvement with NICE Voice of the Customer Solution

The NICE solution allows the Malaysia-based telco to collect customer feedback in real time and take immediate action to improve its customer experience

September 10, 2015

​Paramus, New Jersey, September 10, 2015 – NICE Systems (NASDAQ: NICE) today announced that Celcom Axiata Berhad, a premier mobile telecommunications provider in Malaysia, has realized a significant improvement in customer satisfaction since implementing the NICE Fizzback​ solution in November 2014. Throughout its retail branches, NPS (net promoter score) has increased by 15 points, while its contact center operations have seen a 16-point NPS improvement.

As a result of its success with the NICE Voice of the Customer solution, Celcom has been named a winner of the 2015 NICE Innovation Award. The solution allows the company to make strategic decisions based on the analysis of large amounts of customer data. It also provides managers and frontline employees increased visibility and helps them take immediate action to prevent customer churn.

For instance, within 30 minutes of every interaction with a service agent, whether in person or over the phone, Celcom engages their customers by asking them to comment on their experience and level of satisfaction. The company can quickly reach out to customers expressing any dissatisfaction and make sure their needs are being met.

According to Celcom, as part of its clearly defined customer experience strategy, the company invested in customer satisfaction tools in order to create unforgettable experiences for its users. This contributed to the significant improvement in its customer service, as the NICE Fizzback solution allowed Celcom to immediately act on the feedback it received following all interactions.

“The NICE solution helps Celcom create perfect experiences by proactively reaching out to customers to ensure the highest level of satisfaction with its services. Our closed-loop feedback technology delivers data directly to frontline employees, which in turn means faster responses and greater retention success,” said Raghav Sahgal, President of NICE Asia Pacific. “The success of the solution is clear – Celcom has already increased its NPS scores by 15-16 points across the board within just six months of launch.”
