SEDCO's exemplary approach to customer experience and innovation have been pivotal in securing its win. One of the company's distinguishing factors is its 'vertical zed' strategy, uniquely tailoring solutions for each industry or vertical with embedded best practices. This customization ensures that regardless of the sector being served, SEDCO's adaptable system intuitively accommodates the distinct customer journeys in each field. These include banking, telecom, government, healthcare, and many other sectors.
Moreover, SEDCO employs sophisticated business intelligence analytics that provide in-depth insights into the customer journey, analysing data before, during, and after visits. The integration of Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology over the past four years has enriched the company's solutions with AI tools and analytics. This dual focus has amplified the value of SEDCO's offerings.
The tangible impact of SEDCO's solutions on businesses and organizations in the UAE further underscores the company's award-worthy status with its queue management system leading to remarkable reductions in waiting times (59 per cent), service times (24 per cent), staff workloads (55 per cent), and patient registration times at hospitals (65 per cent). These substantial improvements have not only optimized operational efficiency but have also directly contributed to heightened customer experiences, making this recognition well-deserved.
