  • Concentrix VOC: Measuring CX Transformation

    May 03, 2019, by Ivan Kotzev

    Despite the evolution of contact center technology (think conversational AI), the spread of digital channels (think smart speakers), and the dramatic change in the ways companies interact with customers (think mobile-first), the industry KPIs for measuring the impact of these transformations remain limited.

  • The Case for Expanding Provider Network Coopetition Among U.S. Health Plans

    Apr 18, 2019, by Sven Lohse

      In my previous blog, I described how, since 2017, Sutherland has created a shared services model that obviates the need for participating California health plans to separately build and update parallel databases to track the availability of providers of nonurgent care for Medicaid recipients.
