Future-Proofed Customer Experience with A.I.
Contact centres have evolved slowly over the years. For the past decade, it’s been about omni-channel. Before that, it was interactive voice response (IVR), and before that, it was skills-based evolution. This slow and steady progression is about to be further disrupted.
Mitel has drawn on years of contact centre expertise to create smarter contact centre AI solutions, partnering with Google to transform the customer experience, powered by Google Cloud’s artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning technologies.
Delivered using Mitel CloudLink, this intelligent customer experience technology works with all Mitel contact centre solutions, future-proof ing your communications investment for ever-changing innovation.
Beyond The Chatbot: Google Contact Centre Ai
Chatbots have brought us a long way toward a more responsive customer experience, but they are cumbersome and can be costly to implement and maintain. To take virtual agents to the next level, Mitel partnership with Google will bring artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities into contact centre solutions.
The resulting capabilities accelerate and automate work streams within the contact centre while helping present customers with pertinent information more quickly.
How Does Contact Centre Artificial Intelligence Work?
With a traditional chatbot, a contact centre team is responsible for predicting what their customers are going to ask, and painstakingly scripting each interaction. This Mitel/Google AI combined solution connects the customer directly to your company’s knowledge base, shifting chatbot implementation time from months to days. Using natural language processing (NLP), this intelligent customer experience solution understands what your customers are saying, chatting or texting without requiring specific phrasing, and a virtual agent responds in real-time whether a human agent is available or not.
If the virtual agent reaches a question or situation it cannot handle alone, the virtual agent can then involve a live agent in the conversation, feeding conversation details directly to a human agent. The intelligent experience doesn’t end there, however. Leveraging machine learning (ML), the solution will continue to observe the customer-agent interaction, suggesting relevant options or content to the agent and monitoring which responses come to a successful conclusion.
The end result? Your agent receives real-time coaching from the Agent Assist capability, to be more accurate and more responsive in delivering an improved customer experience.
Our AI analytics leverage the power of natural language processing (NLP) to interpret why your customers are contacting you, to provide trend analysis on the most common areas for improving your products, user interfaces and information availability. These real-time insights enable you to continuously improve your customer experience more quickly than after-the-fact satisfaction metrics. Where most solutions focus on agent efficiency, our intelligent customer experience capability can now measure customer interactions that directly relate to customer satisfaction.
Mitel is also engaging with Google Cloud around the responsible use of AI. This includes best practices such as disclosing when customers are talking to a bot, and education around issues such as unconscious bias and the future of work. Mitel is committed to adhering to these practices and will implement responsible disclosure settings that inform callers when they’re speaking to a bot.
