Flight Centre soars to new heights in deal with Nintex K2 cloud Featured

By

Australian-listed travel agency the Flight Centre Travel Group has leveraged the K2 cloud solution from global process management and automation vendor Nintex to help improve its operational efficiencies and digitally transform its customer experience.

Flight Centre (ASX: FLT) says it received an overwhelming number of cancellation requests in 2020 as a result of the Covid 19 pandemic, and needed to find a fast and more efficient way to support its customers beyond their 800-number especially when the US and Canada borders were initially closed last year.

“The organisation turned to K2 Cloud to quickly develop and launch a digital form process that automatically routes changes to one centralised expertise-based Flight Centre team armed with all the necessary tools and policies to expedite changes with improved customer experience,” Nintex says.

“To date, the form has been leveraged more than 60,000 times which has helped reduce customer hold times and potential frustrations.”

"The travel industry as a whole quickly pivoted how it operates and responds to cancellations and restrictions brought on by the pandemic,” said Josh Waldo, Nintex Chief Customer Officer. "By automating repetitive, time-consuming tasks with easy-to-use and powerful digital process automation software like K2 Cloud, the Flight Centre Travel Group immediately went digital and provided its corporate travellers with a better experience.”

Nintex says that to improve its corporate travel customer experience, the Flight Centre Travel Group modernised its operations to drive more consistency and transparency across its processes.

“Previously, like most businesses, information was tracked and shared across spreadsheets, forms, and third-party tools, with no single source of truth. This resulted in team members spending time managing repetitive, complex processes that delayed great customer experience,” notes Nintex.

“We wanted to improve process efficiency across the organisation. We needed a consistent, streamlined way of accurately capturing all information in a shareable way in order to create greater standardisation and transparency,” said Shaun Clear, Global Head of Operations for FCM Travel Solutions (a Flight Centre brand).

“K2 Cloud has given us the ability to quickly and swiftly address a number of operational issues helping us focus on the most important piece of our business and the reason we exist: our travel customers.”

“For instance, we currently have one customer that needs 400 sites, which is an immense undertaking when one build typically takes about 30 – 45 minutes,” said Nick Williams, Head of Digital Workplace at Flight Centre Travel Group.

“To keep up with demand we needed to add an intelligent automation layer to the process which is why we decided to use K2 Software. With K2 Cloud we can collect customer information and configure it with RPA to automatically build sites with no human oversight. This has been truly transformative for the team and helps us focus on more strategic projects like improving our customer experience and future-proofing our business.”
