Qualtrics, the leader in experience management (XM), announced that OFX, a global business helping clients simplify the process of international monetary transfers, has selected the Qualtrics Experience Management Platform™ to accelerate their client experience transformation.
With plans to strengthen its global presence, OFX sought to leverage their critical point of differentiation, a seamless digital experience backed by knowledgeable, local client service teams.
Sarah Bernhardi, Commercial Director, OFX, said, “OFX chose Qualtrics because the platform allows us to monitor the client experience at multiple touchpoints across multiple channels. Feedback is real-time, meaning opportunities can be identified quickly, and OFX can easily prioritise the areas that need to change. Consequently, we’re seeing incremental changes every week that positively affect the customer experience as well as the employee experience.
“Using the Qualtrics XM Platform, OFX now has a very responsive closed-loop feedback system in place. Within two hours of feedback being received, someone from the client services team will contact the client to offer assistance. Having client services teams around the world means we can do this without delay.”
As a result of implementing the Qualtrics Experience Management Platform for real-time feedback, OFX’s approach to improving the client experience is much more responsive. This is made possible by the way OFX has deployed Qualtrics across the organisation, giving teams across the business access to real-time dashboards and reports, allowing teams within the organisation to dive deep into the insights that matter for their piece of the business.
Sarah Bernhardi said, “The goal with Qualtrics was to make information available to the people that need it without delay. From day one, we were adamant that we wouldn’t waste time converting the data into presentations. Instead, we provided the Qualtrics dashboard to as many people in the organisation that needed it, offering full transparency. This is a more powerful approach that demonstrates the priority we’ve placed on keeping the customer central to everything we do. Without Qualtrics we would not have been able to implement the client experience transformation at the speed at which we have done.”
Bill McMurray, Managing Director, Asia Pacific and Japan, Qualtrics, said, “Customer experience is rapidly becoming a key driver for business success. Companies that focus on customer experience effectively, addressing customer concerns and demonstrating genuine care for the customer, are seeing exceptional results. OFX identified the importance of the customer experience early. The secret to success of such programs is not just gathering feedback but deriving insights from that feedback and acting immediately to improve the customer experience. This is where companies can create a significant competitive advantage.”

Qualtrics will enable ANA to gather a wide range of feedback from customers and share it throughout the organisation in a timely manner
Qualtrics, the leader in experience management, announced that it has been appointed by All Nippon Airways (ANA) to provide its cloud-based Experience Management Platform™ to help improve the airline’s customer experience. With Qualtrics, ANA will be able to gain more precise and timely analysis, provide feedback to divisions and field staff members, and take actions based on real-time feedback.
ANA is the largest airline in Japan, servicing approximately 53.8 million customers annually for domestic and international travel. ANA is the only Japanese airline to receive the highest five-star rating for six consecutive years from SKYTRAX Inc. It has also been awarded 2018 Competitive Information Technology (IT) Company by Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry and the Tokyo Stock Exchange.
Before implementing Qualtrics, ANA traditionally collected customer feedback via questionnaires. However, the information wasn’t timely or accurate enough, and ANA needed a way to share feedback more effectively throughout the company.
ANA chose the Qualtrics Experience Management Platform™ due to its ability to gather data on a wide range of topics from customers and deliver insights to managers so they can take the necessary actions to improve the customer experience.
Hironobu Kondo, Director, CS Promotion CS & Products Services, ANA, said, “We have determined that the Qualtrics Customer Experience Solution will be a powerful solution for achieving the ideal closed loop cycle for ANA’s customer satisfaction improvement so we decided to adopt it. By utilising the customer experience (CX) program in the future and by using and accumulating knowledge, ANA will be able to develop better measurements to accurately understand customer demands and satisfaction.”
Bill McMurray, Managing Director, Asia Pacific and Japan, Qualtrics, said, “Qualtrics is driving a paradigm shift in the way that organisations can capture and react in real-time to customer feedback.”
“We provide the balance of full-function capability, with a scalable and easy-to-use customer experience management platform. This enables an organisation to have a flexible and agile program where the company can start small, implement that, learn and iterate and then grow the program out in terms of capabilities/customer touchpoints and scale.”
“Organisations can then take action and respond to customers in real-time to turn what was a negative or OK experience into an exceptional experience, and ultimately convert them into life-long customers.”
“It’s great to see that ANA, like many of our other customers, are able to improve their customer experience programs with Qualtrics.”
About All Nippon Airways
ANA was founded in 1952 with two helicopters and has become the largest airline in Japan, as well as one of the most significant airlines in Asia, operating 85 international routes and 119 domestic routes. ANA offers a unique dual hub model which enables passengers to travel to Tokyo and connect through the two airports in the metropolitan Tokyo, Narita and Haneda, to various destinations throughout Japan, and also offers same day connections between various North American, Asian, and Chinese cities.
ANA has been a member of Star Alliance since 1999 and has joint venture partnerships with United Airlines, Lufthansa German Airlines, Swiss International Airlines and Austrian Airlines.
Besides the full service and award winner carrier ANA, the ANA Group has two LCCs as consolidated subsidiaries, Vanilla Air Inc. and Peach Aviation Limited.
