Improved customer experience for a biotechnology giant

by implementing AWS Conversational AI (CAI)

Manual contact centers, high call volumes, and the need for additional agents – these were the major challenges faced by this biotechnology giant that joined hands with Virtusa to enhance its customer experience. We presented a solution that not only addressed the existing challenges but also presented a holistic approach by implementing AWS and CAI.

The Challenge

After formulating the world’s first drug to reduce the effects of Alzheimer’s, the client was expecting colossal demand and queries from customers.  

However, it was unable to respond due to the following challenges: 

  • Manual contact centers across most of the processes. 
  • All-time high call volumes. 
  • A pressing need to hire an additional 3,000 agents.
The Solution

The client collaborated with Virtusa for its experience and expertise in the healthcare industry. 

  • Provided architectural guidance based on the best CAI practices. 
  • Created a new omnichannel platform using Amazon Connect, Lex, and Polly.

  • Architected a framework to reduce the overall cost. 
  • Implemented DevOps using AWS CDK and CloudFormation templates.  
  • Developed analytics-based dashboards to provide predictive insights.
