TeleClinic experienced a 500% increase in requests during the pandemic, which was overwhelming for their support team to say the least. From where they saw it: they could either hire and onboard a lot more people quickly, or automate processes to support their existing team. When faced with this decision, it was clear that AI-powered automation was the only logical choice. After researching other competitors, TeleClinic chose Ultimate as the best automation solution to meet their complex use cases in serving both doctors and patients. They also needed to work with an automation provider located in the EU to ensure GDPR compliance, and Ultimate fit the bill.
Three years later, Ultimate’s automation solution continues to help remove barriers in access for people seeking telemedical support – and to the doctors looking to provide it. For example, both patients and doctors are able to self-serve much more quickly through the platform, with a whopping workload reduction of 18.9 hours per ticket. TeleClinic has also been able to steadily reduce costs, with €100,504.42 saved in 2023 alone. They’ve achieved all this while keeping their agents happy, too. Due to upticks in requests during hay fever season or when there is a stomach bug going around, agent workload remains stable thanks to automation. As a result, agent NPS score has been a steady 8.5/10. From a global pandemic to hay fever season, TeleClinic feels prepared to weather whatever the future holds thanks to Ultimate's automation solution.
