Simplify the employee experience to increase productivity across Nationwide’s sales, service, underwriting and processing centers, by offering each group of employees a role-based unified desktop that brought together tools pertinent to their respective jobs.
Time-consuming employee tasks related to select customer inquiries such as billing analysis, address changes, and insurance quote lookup were automated using robotic desktop automation.
Attended robotic process automation (Attended RPA) bots were also used to proactively surface relevant knowledge articles and to auto-document key actions taken by the employee to reduce errors and after call work.
