Conviva’s integration with ServiceNow extends ServiceNow’s offerings within the telecom and media industry and will help streaming customers to automate proactive case creation and ticket generation to identify and diagnose incidents across the entire video delivery supply chain. Adding this additional layer of automation to root cause analysis delivers improved productivity, reduced operating expenses and faster time to issue resolution.
“Automatically populating support tickets inside of ServiceNow will dramatically reduce operational overhead,” said Juan Rojo, Head of Incident Management at DAZN. “With this visibility we can spend more time addressing issues and less time documenting.”
Delivering Conviva’s streaming insights directly into the hands of customer care agents using ServiceNow also enables agents to easily understand each viewer’s streaming experience by quickly evaluating location-related and network issues, devices and operating systems, ISP being used, errors and service issues and the streaming quality. These streaming insights can be further extended via ServiceNow’s telecom and media industry solutions to drive real-time alerts to customers as well as immediate updates available via self-service portals and chatbots.
Diagnosing incidents faster and more accurately is critical and providing a more informed and proactive customer care experience when service issues arise has become a key area for streaming providers to differentiate themselves. Conviva’s integration with ServiceNow delivers the data and insights for providers to meet these needs and deliver great customer service.
“As streaming providers adapt to the increased demand for content, providing an exceptional customer experience has become an important competitive advantage,” said Bill Demas, CEO at Conviva. “Until now, customer service teams have had limited insight into a customer’s streaming experience, hampering their ability to troubleshoot technical issues and even provide general subscription support. Thanks to Conviva’s work with ServiceNow, agents can now immediately see which service issues are impacting the viewer and provide actionable service recommendations based on this data. The result is an enhanced customer experience while reducing average issue resolution times and churn. It’s a win-win for streaming providers and their customers.”
“When it comes to streaming, the customer experience is everything,” said Chris Bauschka, GM & AVP, Global Telecommunications, Media and Technology at ServiceNow. “By integrating Conviva’s streaming insights with ServiceNow telecom and media industry solutions, streaming providers will be able to identify issues faster and proactively keep their customers updated of service issues. This means a more reliable streaming service and personalized customer care experience.”
This integration also offers additional proactive benefits, including the ability to identify which customers may have had a poor streaming experience. This allows OTT streaming providers and publishers to target those customers for proactive nurture campaigns, offer them self-help resolutions and ultimately deflect future support calls, resulting in increased customer loyalty, higher NPS scores and reduced churn.
