Problem Context

Immediate resolution of claimant queries and alleviation of claims contact center traffic

The customer is a US state government agency that manages the unemployment system. The Covid 19 outbreak affected almost all the industries, leading to an all time high unemployment rate throughout the globe. With limited workforce and contact hours, it became difficult for the customer to handle the high volume of claim and unemployment benefits related queries.


  • Thousands of Covid induced job losses led to huge call volumes on the contact center
  • Limited contact center hours, lack of timely/daily updates and long waiting hours resulted in poor customer experience
  • Customers calling in for basic FAQs and their account related details led to a decline in agents’ productivity
