Virgin Media Saves $1.25M per Year by Automating Proactive Service Health Checks

Virgin Media implemented Resolve’s platform to increase help desk operator productivity, improve customer satisfaction, and make sure customers were notified of outages in a timely manner.

Customer Objectives

As an innovative UK communications service provider, it was essential for Virgin Media to find an efficient way to improve service delivery and customer communications. Virgin Media turned to Resolve’s platform to ensure operators are focused on real incidents – the ones that matter most to their business. Additionally, they wanted to ensure that customer notification communications were timely and targeted.

Solution Overview

With Resolve, Virgin Media has automated the validation and diagnosis of outage incidents, and automatically updates pending tickets so operators are focused on the right issues, right now. Plus, with Resolve, Virgin Media automatically notifies customers whenever there’s been an outage event and that Virgin Media is actively working on it.

With Resolve, we’ve realized annual savings of $1.25M, $3,000 per day” Virgin Media
