IT assessment

Life Sciences Information Technology Assessment

An $800 million life sciences company requested an assessment of its IT function with the objective to improve IT agility and speed, the effectiveness of Run-Grow-Transform spend and ensure future IT investments delivered the expected business value. Certain elements of the company’s IT function were already decentralized and located in several business units. Initially, this improved the pace at which new IT investments were deployed. Over time, however, this decentralization came at a cost – increasing systems complexity, resulting in reduced business agility and longer time-to-value for IT investments. To address the complexity, Cimphoni recommended two initiatives: implementation of Guided Autonomy and deployment of an IT asset discovery platform. Guided Autonomy specified a framework to optimize speed, cost and complexity of the computing environment while also delivering expected business value of IT investments. The IT asset discovery platform provided an inventory of existing computing assets, which identified opportunities to rationalize these assets and reduce Run-Grow cost and complexity.

omni-channel cx migration

Omni-Channel Migration – Avaya to Genesys Cloud

Cimphoni was engaged by the client’s executive team to drive a major Customer Experience (CX) transformation starting with the retirement of legacy channel solutions including Avaya, and the transition to Genesys Cloud. Our work began by interviewing stakeholders to assess their operational and technical environments, writing the RFP and leading the evaluation and final vendor selection. Cimphoni negotiated contracts for implementation services and 5-year software and support agreements. We managed the overall implementation comprising a cross-functional client team and five external vendors. The platform was implemented across over 4,500 corporate, contact center and retail employees spanning 19 lines of business. The solution enabled four customer interaction channels built across over 400 Genesys Queues and included integrations with third-party Workforce Management (WFM) and multiple internal CRM/systems of record. The project culminated in the formation of new internal teams, new governance and workflow processes and a strong foundation to build upon.

business optimization and robotic process automation

Streamlining Home Equity Loan Processing via Robotic Process Automation (RPA)

A Wisconsin credit union with more than $4 billion in assets turned to Cimphoni when it sought to drive operational efficiencies and introduce technology innovation to enhance customer service. We determined that the credit union’s home equity lending line of business was particularly well-suited for improvement and innovation through Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and led the project from detailed process documentation and project justification through organizational change management and implementation of the technology solution. We completed end-to-end automation of home equity loans from application submission and validation to eligibility and offer determination to generation of reports and final documentation across multiple internal systems. Leveraging our metric-driven business optimization approach, we were able to deliver meaningful improvements in labor productivity, cycle time and compliance. We also identified numerous additional areas for future RPA implementations based on projected ROI.
