J.B. Hunt Transport Services Relies on Genesys to Deliver Industry-Leading Customer Experience

Genesys (www.genesys.com), a leading provider of customer experience and contact center solutions, today announced that J.B. Hunt Transport Services, Inc. [NASDAQ:JBHT], has saved over $30 million in operational costs since implementing the Genesys Customer Experience Platform. The platform powers a data-driven contact routing strategy for 1,200 J.B. Hunt agents across 130 U.S. call centers. A Fortune 500 company and one of the largest transportation logistics companies in North America, J.B. Hunt uses the Customer Experience Platform to enable one-to-one routing to efficiently match callers – internal customers, drivers, and external vendors with the most appropriate customer service representative.

J.B. Hunt’s previous contact center solution limited their ability to add more agent skill sets for routing rules that spanned more than 100 diverse call centers and varied customer interactions, from addressing road service issues to handling account questions. J.B. Hunt relies on the powerful routing engine of the Customer Experience Platform to enable both least cost and best agent skill match call routing, which has accelerated call resolution times and saved millions in operational costs.

With the Customer Experience Platform, J.B. Hunt is able to increase the number of target agents with relevant skill sets, which has significantly increased the percentage of calls that go to the first account rep, greatly reducing internal transfers. Genesys has contributed to an improved customer experience by reducing the average speed of answer (ASA) from 39 seconds to 4 seconds, abandoned calls from 17% to 2.1%, and average handle time (AHT) by nearly 30 seconds. A long-time Genesys customer, the company estimates it has saved upwards of $30 million in operational costs with the solution over the last 15 years.

J.B. Hunt relies heavily on the Customer Experience Platform to attach a virtually unlimited set of data from multiple sources – such as driver, delivery or load information – to make both intelligent call routing and most appropriate agent matching decisions. J.B. Hunt also uses Genesys Reporting & Analytics, Genesys Proactive Communications and Genesys Voice Platform (GVP) for IVR. The combination of these solutions enable J.B. Hunt to establish one-to-one routing while allowing for agent schedule changes, break down communication silos and empower the caller to control their call routing, all towards the goal of continuous improvement for the customer experience.

“J.B. Hunt has set the standard for transportation logistics companies to deliver outstanding customer experiences,” said Tom Eggemeier, Executive Vice President, Global Sales, Genesys. “Genesys has been a proud partner of J.B. Hunt in their journey to distinguish itself with world class service, and Genesys is committed to helping J.B. Hunt maintain its innovation in the years ahead.”

Digital Transformation is the ultimate goal of cloud computing and related initiatives. The phrase is certainly not a precise one, and as subject to hand-waving and distortion as any high-falutin' terminology in the world of information technology. Yet it is an excellent choice of words to describe what enterprise IT—and by extension, organizations in general—should be working to achieve. Digital Transformation means: handling all the data types being found and created in the organizat...
