VIZIO & Ekata

Success Story

The Opportunity

As an award-winning leader in customer service, VIZIO is no stranger to the value of top quality customer support. In the drive towards continual improvement in that arena, VIZIO identified a major opportunity to reduce call duration and improve customer satisfaction by examining time lost when an agent manually inputs customer data.

The Solution

As a champion of efficiency, VIZIO call centers had already been equipped with CTI integration to check incoming phone numbers against their customer database – but they knew they could do better. By adding Ekata Phone Intelligence API to the process they were able to identify unknown phone numbers from new and current customers, and import contact information with just a few clicks. Using the well documented API (Application Programming Interface) provided by Ekata, it only took 2 days to connect VIZIO call centers to the 300 million+ mobile and landline phone numbers in the Ekata database.

When you’re taking close to a million calls a year, that’s a big savings in staff time. That’s proven the return on investment to us.
