The challenge

The rapid expansion and acquisitions at Fenix Outdoor AB have led to a substantial increase in the employee count, soaring from 200 to 2,500 employees. The company’s growing workforce and new retail stores created a complex environment that outpaced the existing support system. With increasing support cases and escalating responsibilities, managing the situation became a challenge. Employees found themselves spending valuable time triaging and handling support-related tasks.

To streamline and improve support quality, Fenix Outdoor AB partnered with valantic. Their objective was to implement a comprehensive service desk support system, serving as a centralized hub for all team members and taking the lead in visualizing, measuring, and improving the overall support experience.

The solution

Together with valantic, Fenix Outdoor AB mapped out their digital and in-store support requirements. To facilitate faster adoption, an incremental implementation approach was chosen. Initially, valantic only provided Level 1 support during business hours for a single eCommerce platform.

Later on, these services were expanded to 24/7 CX monitoring and support for all 2,500 Fenix Outdoor AB employees. The comprehensive support solution includes advanced ticketing and communication technology, along with features such as Quality of Service dashboards and cost optimization. The objective was clear: to both enhance support quality, boost operational efficiency and increase employee satisfaction.
