of employees said Jarvis positively impacted their relationship with IT
As an organization focused on measuring customer satisfaction, Medallia’s leadership also strives for a high level of satisfaction among its own employees. Medallia CIO Ashwin Ballal sees machine learning as a key enabler for delivering this. He says, “We’re pioneering a new model for employee experience, powered by AI.” He adds, “For the first time, we’re at a point where we can apply machine learning that’s good enough to resolve entire categories of work and—at the same time—improve the quality of employees’ interactions with IT.”
For Jillian Middleton, IT architecture and engineering manager at Medallia, providing 24/7 support is a challenge, given her small team: ’It’s not feasible to have human staffing around the clock with an IT department the size of ours.” To address this, Middleton and her team at Medallia deployed Jarvis, a chatbot in Slack that resolves employees’ issues instantly. “We needed a more efficient way to resolve these common tasks and to answer questions for employees so that we could free up our IT staff to work on more challenging problems.”
Almost 80% of Medallia’s employees have directly interacted with the Jarvis chatbot, and up to 95% have reaped the benefits through autonomously resolved or accelerated IT tickets. In the latest survey, overall satisfaction with Jarvis was rated at 9 out of a possible 10, ranking Jarvis as one of the highest performing agents on the IT team. Ninety percent of surveyed employees report that Jarvis has positively impacted their relationship with IT. Within a few weeks of deploying Moveworks, Medallia’s IT personnel saw a 34% drop in average ticket resolution time.
