Coveo Insight Solutions to be implemented in over 1,500 school districts and to serve 8 million students in the USA

Coveo announced today that SunGard has implemented its Insight Solutions for Customer Service across Sungard K-12 Education, which currently supports over 1,500 school districts and over 8 million students (one out of six students) across the US.

SunGard is one of the world’s leading software and technology services companies. Its four businesses serve approximately 25,000 customers in more than 70 countries. SunGard K-12 Education offers district-wide software solutions to help teachers, administrators and parents support student achievement. Sungard K-12 Education delivers an integrated suite of software solutions for student information, assessment and curriculum management, special education, and financial and human resources.

SunGard K-12 sought to streamline its customer service operations and provide agents with a consolidated view of all structured and unstructured customer information across multiple systems, including social communities. Prior to Coveo, SunGard agents needed to search and sort through many separate data repositories to answer customer questions, wasting support agent time and resulting in higher costs to resolve customer issues.

With Coveo, SunGard K-12 customer service agents gain additional insight to solve customer issues quickly and efficiently. Coveo’s Insight Consoles automatically consolidate and correlate information from across multiple systems, including SunGard’s CRM and case tracking system, file shares and online customer communities, into a single, role-based Insight Console, configured specifically to SunGard contact center agent and manager needs.

With Coveo Insight Solutions, SunGard K-12 customer service agents now have a consolidated, single view of relevant customer information from across interaction channels and systems. With this greater level of insight into its customers, SunGard will improve agent efficiency and speed case resolution time, all while maintaining SunGard’s high levels of customer satisfaction.
