Xperience enables Vodafone to see the mobile internet service quality from customer’s perspective.

Lisbon, Portugal – June 2011 – STREAMBOW, a leading provider of quality of experience and service solutions for mobile, home and access networks, today announced that Vodafone (LSE: VOD.L) has selected its Xperience solution to diagnose and monitor the customer experience of end user’s mobile internet services.

By implementing Xperience Care Center, Vodafone reduces significantly the diagnosis and support time spent per incident resulting in reduced support costs and at the same time better customer attendance. Xperience Care Center is running in-depth, real-time, on-demand diagnostics directly on customers’ computer, to identify service bottlenecks, equipment failures, configuration or network problems.

Using Xperience Care Center, the customer is instructed to launch a diagnosis session on the fly from a link via Vodafone’s service portal, without requiring any pre-deployment. The entirely web-based, solution performs end-to-end testing and measurement including, latency, bandwidth measurement, equipment diagnostics and more. Test results are practically instant and viewable by the support technician and the customer at the same time. The unique combination of equipment diagnostics and throughput data offers the technician a holistic view to customers’ service experience allowing instant classification between customer or network problems.

This fast resolution offers Vodafone the ability to increase customer satisfaction and productivity while saving Vodafone time and costs, avoiding unnecessary on-site support or implementing more investigative testing from their end.

Streambow’s Care Center solution helps Vodafone in its effort to continually improve customer satisfaction, this time through faster and more comprehensive diagnostics to remedy user impairments . “Xperience also gives us the ability to reduce our time spent on support issues and to achieve significant reductions in technical support costs“, commented José Oliveira, Operations Director, Vodafone.
