We were looking for a tool that would meet our need to consolidate results of the holding, but that would also , enable us to carry out the Drill Down by health operators and hospitals in the different journeys of each patient. SoluCX gave us full support during the integration, which was very fast, even involving 14 different brands and their management systems

Currently, our platform receives monthly from Athena Saúde brands more than 200 thousand services from different sectors, consolidates information in real time and automatically distributes to configured hierarchies, all this on just one platform. This fact allows holding monitor your acquisitions more assertively and make strategic decisions in improvement projects.

The new monitoring framework, allows to holding get more than 350 real-time NPS results. Extraction of information, that previously took two to three days to obtain, with the implementation of the SoluCX platform, becomes just twenty seconds with a maximum of five clicks. Besides that, brands are integrated via REST API for the purpose of receiving and returning all information collected in the survey to a WITH A and Command Center.
