Cognizant has won an award for Best Achievement in Technology Enabled Process Automation from The Business Transformation & Operational Excellence Summit and Industry Awards (BTOES) 2020.
The BTOES Awards were established to highlight the most outstanding organizational achievements through the application of Operational Excellence. They focus on demonstrating the real results that businesses achieve through the successful implementation of operational applications.

The solution included the use of intelligent process automation that leverages artificial intelligence and machine learning to streamline workflows and processes. These tools freed employees at the contact center to work on more human-centric tasks and improve the customer experience by eliminating the lag time in responding to customer requests submitted via email and online. The project resulted in:
