Telia's customer focus

CHARLOTTA GAMNIS, Head of Service Management at Telia, says that customer satisfaction should be no. 1 focus. Why? Because it is your customers and stakeholders that actually promote your business. To achieve it, you need to measure customer satisfaction, follow up on feedback, establish a support concept, and continuously improve. But remember: even if it is a lot about technology and processes, it is still a peoples’ business, making employee satisfaction a fundamental building block to succeed.

A new way to work Storebrand

HEIDI SKAARET, COO at Storebrand, took part in establishing the center in Vilnius from the very start. In 2015, Storebrand decided to take the services to a new level via Cognizant, in order to enhance customer experience and achieve cost-efficiency. Now, Storebrand enjoys a wide range of services from Cognizant in Vilnius. Heidi describes it as an accelerator for cost reductions, digitization and innovation, allowing Storebrand to come closer to customers, market and growth opportunities.
