Innovating to

Empower Customers

When Blue Shield of California (BSC) experienced massive growth in their member base, their outdated systems were unable to keep up with increased demands. PTP facilitated a strategic Customer Experience (CX) assessment, then deployed a smarter contact center platform built with intelligent interaction routing, bilingual speech, and ongoing tuning and support services.



While government healthcare reforms had fueled exciting growth for BSC, their existing system presented several challenges, such as:

  • Pressure to boost MTMs and caller avoidance rates (CAR)

  • An inability to process efficiency throughout the contact center using the current platform

  • A need to align the customer experience with their brand promise

A Modern Contact Center Solution

After PTP conducted a strategic assessment of BSC’s existing technologies, we developed and implemented an updated customer experience solution. Our approach focused on not only upgrading technology, but also making changes that allowed for a holistic, CX-focused environment. Our strategy and implementation included:

  • Strategic CX Assessment

    PTP collaborated with stakeholders to align BSC goals with recommended solutions, delivering an assessment that featured customer insight, industry benchmarking, and a technology gap analysis.

  • Intelligent IVR

    A redesigned IVR increased agent efficiency, incorporating features such as intelligent routing, bilingual speech, caller personas, and an intelligent desktop with screen pop.

  • Application Optimization Tuning and Upgrade Implementation

    Both reporting and staff training were leveraged for maximum use of new features.

“I look forward to a long and prosperous working relationship with PTP, not only because of their ability to get the job done, but because every single one of them put their heart and soul into making sure that every project, every account, doesn’t just function, but is a reflection of them as individuals and something they can be proud of at the end of the day.”
