Diákhitel Központ Zrt. (Diákhitel), Hungary’s leading student loan company, has been helping students fund their higher education studies since 2001. The company offers three types of student loans, all with very reasonable interest rates. Two of their products have a 0% interest rate, while the interest rate of the third product is below 1,99%. www.diakhitel.hu
As a company offering student loans, Diákhitel’s clients are mainly from the digital and tech-savvy Generation Z. In order to successfully serve their young client base, Diákhitel needs to rely on the kind of flexible and modern technologies that can live up to Gen Zers high expectations.
Diákhitel previously used a number of different systems in order to be able to handle their customer queries. In particular, they relied on one system just to record their calls, and another one to generate identification numbers for each call. As a result, operators had to work using two screens, and switch between several software tools. Furthermore, in addition to having to use different systems, their previous system did not have any reporting features, meaning they had to manually register their call reports in excel sheets.
Due to their very young client base, one essential channel for Diákhitel is their self-service IVR system. However, with their previous call center system, even the smallest change in the IVR needed to be carried out by an IT specialist hired just for this reason. And of course, maintenance fees were extremely expensive. Last but not least, troubleshooting times with the previous system were very slow, with issues often taking several days or even weeks to resolve.
As a business serving a digitally savvy young generation, Diákhitel needed to choose a system that could offer them the latest technology solutions in the contact center industry. As their client base prefers to reach out via their IVR, it was particularly important for the company to be able to easily customize and change their complex IVR system’s settings. Having thoroughly investigated all the options available, Diákhitel soon realized that VCC Live was the only solution that would allow them to change IVR settings on their own.
In addition, due to their clients’ high expectations, Diákhitel takes excellent customer experience very seriously. Luckily, VCC Live offered them the ideal tool to be able to handle all their quality management processes on the same platform.
Furthermore, as with most companies around the world, the COVID-19 pandemic situation meant that, to continue their operations, Diákhitel had no option but to switch to a remote working environment. Thanks to VCC Live’s real-time monitoring and reporting features, the transition from office to home office went very smoothly, and the company continues to be able to oversee their operators closely and effectively.
