Driving effective enterprise-wide change that transforms operations and creates a stellar customer experience
Focused on adoption and readying your organization for change through call center optimization and learning design and delivery.
Envision the Future
Imagine what the future could be. Define the goals and the guiding principles to create the future vision that will create success for your customer.
Build/Configure the Solution
The roadmap allows the team to begin building the solution by sequencing and prioritizing the categories into buildable components. Technical and business teams work together to define, build, test, QA, and review the solution as it is built incrementally. Teams must not lose sight of what success means as they iterate through the agile process. As the technical components are being built, the business team is defining and planning how to ready all impacted roles to embrace the coming change.
Execute and Adapt
Use your metrics to continually measure success. Is the solution helping or hurting the ability to meet your metrics? What needs to be changed immediately and how can it be changed quickly? What opportunities exist to improve the solution in the future? What is the priority? Gather feedback from data and/or the user community. What ideas do they have to improve the solution? Bring the ideas back to the team for review.

Transformation – Change – Adoption
These words are often used in conversations about resolving challenges or improving an operation. Frequently, businesses are updating applications and technology as part of the solution. We partner with many organizations during these initiatives to ensure the solution solves the problem and is fully embraced by the people.
Customer Experience Consultants to Help Successfully Adopt Technology
- Your company is implementing Technology X to improve the customer experience or drive innovation.
- Technology X’s team is ready to start and asks for requirements and priorities.
- You know your current processes but are struggling with how to translate that into the technology. Time is of the essence. Go-live will be here before you know it!
- The technology team continues to ask questions that your team does not quite know how to answer. Your team’s expertise is running the operation and start-up has a different set of challenges.
- As a result, Phase 1 often becomes about “lifting and loading” and focuses solely on the technical migration without any process improvement.
- The process improvement never comes, because Phase 2 never happens.
This is where we come in. We focus on getting more accomplished in Phase 1. Our approach allows your team to embrace the technology and improve processes. We are experts at leveraging technology to improve your operations that ignite the customer experience. We know how to collaborate with your team and the technology vendor to provide and prioritize the appropriate requirements and User Stories. We help you become more knowledgeable about transformation by up-leveling the team’s skills and fusing processes and technology together to improve the employee and customer experience. We also ensure the business metrics sought are achieved.
This is where we help bring your business, the new technology, and your customer’s needs together to actually transform and improve the operation.
We work with our customers at an accelerated pace through collaboration and deep expertise in business process redesign, operations, customer service excellence, project management, technology implementations, and building stakeholder relationships.
Our experience allows us to target and resolve underlying problems by reviewing upstream and downstream processes as we work with our customers.
Adaptive by nature, Zelus immerses itself, across all levels, in your business. We are easy to work with, down-to-earth, fast, thoughtful, and love to immerse ourselves in the operational details.
Achieving Customer Satisfaction through Operational Excellence
By combining capabilities across our three primary service areas, we create lasting transformation for your organization.
Achieving adoption, especially with large-scale initiatives, is hard. It requires fundamental expertise in Change Management, Operational Excellence including business process reengineering and implementation expertise, and Learning Design and Delivery. Driving adoption also requires resiliency, a sense of humor, a collaborative spirit, empathy, and kindness. At Zelus, we do all of these things. We design and install better processes, manage change, and design technology that supports operational outcomes to transform your workforce and optimize your customer’s experience. As customer experience consultants, we help drive meaningful change to operations and customer experience.
Our work is about turning vision into operational reality. Optimizing your customer’s experience requires the right people doing the right work, effective processes, and leveraging technology to best service your customers and your staff that support them. At Zelus, our process engineers design and install better processes, align the organization, and design how best to use technology to transform your workforce and optimize your customer’s experience through operational excellence.
We build interactive training content and learning programs that produce results. We design content to ensure the learner can do the work after training. We focus on fusing knowledge and understanding customer motivations together with empathy. Our learning design and delivery experience produces scalable and repeatable outcomes.
We deliver training, virtually and in-person, to engage the learner and ensure the right work can be completed by the right role. Our delivery approach focuses on establishing neural pathways and building confidence through practice and action.

Chief Medical Officer
I’ve partnered with Jenny and Carol over the past 14 years in multiple roles.
I rely on them to help sort through complex situations, identify the best path forward, and create enthusiastic buy-in across teams in an organization.
I’ve seen their ability to deliver quality in-person and virtually with empathy, a can-do approach, and an unwavering focus on business outcomes.
President & CEO, SaviLinx
We are proud to partner with Zelus on an increasing number of initiatives.
Their operational design approach is highly effective for complex operations and they have a unique perspective that enables teams to hit the ground running.
Their commitment to excellent, flexible learning design and delivery is critical now and every day in our growing business.
I have worked with Zelus for over 20 years at several companies to solve complex, operational issues. Their thought leadership and ability to get the job done is unique and one of the main reasons I have hired them over and over again. They are change agents that are easy to work with. They understand what it takes to help people make the changes that improve outcomes.
They have helped me transform contact centers through process and workflow redesign, system analysis, and learning and development outsourcing. They are masters at driving adoption that improves customer and employee satisfaction and facilitates operational excellence.
Director of Customer Experience, Massachusetts Health Connector
I highly recommend the Zelus team. They quickly understood our operations and worked with us to improve agent performance. They built learning simulations to break down complex topics and improve agent retention.
They also helped us transform our processes to align with new systems and service customers in our new technical environment in a very short window. They rolled up their sleeves in a very collaborative manner. They project managed the effort and worked cross-functionally with 100+ vendors and internal staff to identify and close gaps in the creation of SOPs. This foundational work created alignment with our new world across the organization. It was amazing.
Training Manager, Massachusetts Health Connector
The Zelus team is great. I was very impressed with their ability to build engaging, accurate, empathetic and learner-focused content. They had very limited source material to work from but were able to quickly work with our SMEs to understand the complex world of the MA health exchange and create something great.
They did 90% of this work virtually as the pandemic hit early in the engagement. They did not miss a beat.
The training material included multiple system simulations that aligned to the technical transformation. Their approach allowed our learners to understand, absorb quickly, and apply these new skills. We continue to use a lot of this same content to train new hires in other areas of the organization and help them understand how the Health Connector functions.
