Varolii Corporation Key Developments

Southwest Airlines Renews Relationship with Varolii Corporation's Interact Platform

Southwest Airlines has renewed its relationship with Varolii Corporation to consistently reach customers, pilots, and employees with critical, time-sensitive information. This three-year agreement extends a relationship that began in 2007. Leveraging the Varolii Interact Platform, Southwest Airlines proactively communicates with customers in nearly real-time - reaching them with personalised messages and self-service options --that allow customers to quickly and easily make changes to their flight itineraries. This effort not only delivers a high quality customer experience, it deflects stress on the carrier's call centers and Customer Service Agents. As part of Southwest's renewal with Varolii, the two companies are making further enhancements to quickly and easily communicate important information to key stakeholders. For instance, the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) requires that all airlines notify passengers of any flight status changes or delays within 30 minutes of the change. Leveraging Varolii's Interact Platform, the carrier is not only compliant with DOT regulations but is able to reach customers with important information in less than five minutes. Varolii also enables Southwest to communicate more effectively with pilots and employees. The Varolii Interact platform powers Southwest's Open Time Alerts solution to efficiently match pilot availability with flight needs. The solution helps the carrier quickly staff unassigned flights, ensure on-time flight operations, and reduce costs from a previously manual process. The OTA solution provides pilots with an opt-in program to deliver SMS text messages directly to the employee's mobile device to alert them of open flights and give real-time opportunities to choose their work schedule. Southwest uses Varolii to exchange more than 100,000 OTA messages with pilots each month. For Internal Employee communications, Southwest uses Varolii to share critical information seamlessly with employees across the company. Varolii allows the carrier to communicate new policies, department information, and operational updates to more than 46,000 employees.
