As the world becomes more and more digitally advanced, the need for better customer service has never been greater. The rise of e-commerce and online shopping has made it easier for customers to purchase goods and services from anywhere in the world. However, with this convenience also comes a greater expectation for quick and effective customer support. By 2035, AI technologies are projected to increase contact center productivity by up to 40%. This is where C-Zentrix's AI-powered contact center comes in.
C-Zentrix's AI-powered contact center is designed to provide businesses with the tools they need to provide excellent customer service. The system is built on scalable platform, which means that it is capable of handling a large volume of calls, chats, and emails, continuously providing customers with the support they need.
Conversational AI chatbots
Interactive voice response (IVR)
Live call analytics
Customer Relationship Management (CRM)
They are software designed to engage customers in a conversational manner and provide them with the information they need in a fast, efficient and convenient way. In an AI-powered contact center, these virtual agents can handle a large volume of customer inquiries and interactions, 24/7, freeing up human agents to focus on more complex or sensitive issues. CZ Bot has the capacity to manage context based conversation. Customers never have to wait since CZ Bot offers service around-the-clock. It can successfully handle queries with different skill needs.
For example, a large telecommunications company has implemented an AI-powered contact center that utilizes chatbots to handle customer inquiries about billing, account information, and technical support. These virtual agents are trained to understand the context of customer inquiries and provide accurate, relevant information in real-time. As a result, customers are able to resolve their issues quickly and easily without having to wait on hold or speak to a human agent.
Chatbots can also analyze customer interactions and identify common issues, allowing the company to improve their products and services. This leads to increased customer satisfaction, as customers are able to get the help they need more quickly and efficiently. Overall, the use of chatbots in an AI-powered contact center can maximize customer satisfaction by providing fast, efficient and convenient customer support, freeing up human agents to focus on more complex issues, and allowing companies to improve their products and services. Nevertheless, the human touch is always there. The chatbot can hand off to a live agent transferring the customer to a live agent along with the context of discussion. The agent can take over from where the bot has left creating a smooth transition.
These are similar to chatbots but the entire interaction is driven by voice. This is the most natural way of human interaction. With the power of speech engine to comprehend the human voice into text and with Natural Language Processing (NLP) it can interpret the conversation and provide the response back to the caller.
In an AI-powered contact center, NLP plays a crucial role in maximizing customer satisfaction. By utilizing NLP, the AI system can process and analyze vast amounts of customer data and provide relevant information to the caller in real-time. Voicebots can respond quickly and effectively to customer queries and resolve their issues promptly. For example, a voicebot can work as a collection agent and call out to customers whose payments are due. It can request the customer to make the payment and collect the response for promise to pay (P2P) and confirming the date of payment.
This frees up the telecallers time and enters the detail in the CRM so that the next corrective action can be taken. Agent assistant is another application of AI in Contact Center. The agent assistant as the name suggests is designed to assist the agents so that they can carry their job efficiently. Agent assistant can interpret the caller’s request and searches the next best action from the knowledge base and provides a cue card to the agent. The agent can look at the response provided by the agent assistant and can copy the response in the chat window or read it out to the caller. For example, a sales agent who is dealing with potential leads can get objections from the prospects. The agent assistant can scout for the right response to the objections and show the couple of response to the agent. The agent can quickly respond to the lead and able to smoothly manage the sales call.
It is an integral part of inbound contact center. It interacts with customers through touch-tone (DTMF) inputs. It is an important component because it allows customers to access information or services through a self-service platform, reducing wait times and improving overall customer experience. CZ IVR is used by enterprises to automate responses for their customers and make it a personalized experience. In an AI powered contact center, the traditional IVR has got a makeover. For example, imagine a customer calling a bank to inquire about their account balance. With a traditional IVR system in place, the customer would be greeted with a pre-recorded voice that provides options such as "Press 1 for account balance, press 2 for loan information, press 3 for customer service." The customer can then select their desired option and receive the information they need without waiting on hold for a live representative.
But why does the customer need to Press 1 or Press 2? In AI powered contact center, the customer can provide a voice response which is interpreted by the IVR and helps the caller navigate through the IVR menu and get the desired outcome. By utilizing AI algorithms, the IVR system can also adapt to the customer's behavior and provide personalized responses, further enhancing the customer experience. For instance, if a customer frequently calls about their account balance, the system may recognize this pattern and automatically direct them to the relevant option without the need for the customer to navigate through the options.
Also known as in call analytics, it is a must have for AI based contact center. This can help the contact center agent to have a pulse of all the calls or chats running in the contact center. CZ Hotword is a live call analytics solution. The supervisor can set the trigger for certain words, phrase or intent for which he wants to be notified. As soon as such event occurs the supervisor is notified. The calls are flagged and shown on the supervisor dashboard. The supervisor can view the call or chat and decide to intervene by call whisper or call barge-in functionality of C-Zentrix contact center solution
An AI powered contact center is quite intelligent. With live call analytics the supervisor can monitor the right call or chat where his attention is required. This can help the agent to get the right coaching during the call or proactive response from the manager and create a high level of customer satisfaction.
Sentment analysis is becoming quite prevalent in an AI powered contact center. The interaction of the customer sentiment is classified into positive, neutral or negative. This can help to understand the trend of customer sentiment and whether the agent’s response has improved the sentiment or worsened it. This becomes a smart way to score the agent and identify the good or not so good interactions.
In C-Zentrix chat solution the customer sentiment is analysed in real time and sentiment trend is recorded. The customer sentiment is tagged so that during the next interaction the agent is aware of the customer sentiment in the previous interaction and be more empathetic in her interaction.Also, sentiment analysis works a proxy to customer feedback. Usually customer are not willing to provide a feedback and 2 to 3 interactions out of 10 usually gets a feedback. The supervisor can internally grade the sentiment score to a CSAT score and use it as a proxy.
This uses Machine learning model to summarize interactions. This is quite handy in an Omnichannel solution where the agent can not only view the previous interactions but quickly understand the summary of the interaction.
With GPT-3 and advanced ML models, the summariser is able to provide a summary of the conversation in a very succinct way without losing out the key points. This saves a lot of time of agent instead of going through the call recording or chat transcripts. The customer is also surprisingly pleased as he doesn’t have to repeat all that happened in the previous call. This is a sure shot way of improving the contact center efficiency and customer satisfaction.
The new replacement of manual QA that contact centers have been using for long time. With the capabilities of speech engine and NLP all calls, chats,emails can be analysed. Unlike the manual QA where only limited calls or chats can be analysed by quality auditors, the automated QA can analyse 100% of calls and chats. This provides a holistic view of the contact center operation, the training needs and customer satisfaction.
Automated QA can score the calls not limited to adherence to call scripts but can analyse the calls based on other parameters like silence duration or overlap in conversation, sentiment during the call etc. This is quite advanced and cost effective way to audit the agent performance and identify the training needs.
It is a crucial component in the development of an AI-powered contact center. It is a database that stores customer information and tracks customer interactions with customer service representatives. An AI-powered contact center can leverage the data stored in the CRM to improve the customer experience and increase customer satisfaction.
For example, an AI-powered contact center can identify the customer's issue over an email and classify the issue so that it gets assigned to right department or even agent. For some basic issues the AI system can provide a resolution based on previous interactions with the customer or similar customer interactions.
Moreover, the CRM data can be used to personalize the customer experience. The AI-powered contact center can analyze customer data and provide personalized recommendations based on the customer's past interactions and preferences. This not only improves customer satisfaction but also increases customer loyalty, as customers feel that their needs are being understood and met. With the help of CZ Helpdesk's multi-channel platform, customers can contact the company's central help desk by voice call, email, SMS, social media, chat, or bot. For the customer's future use in checking the status of the registered issue, the system creates an automated ticket number. The technology enables the business to proactively monitor all inquiries and client concerns, ensuring that none of them goes unanswered
These refer to data that is constantly updated and analyzed in real-time, providing an immediate and accurate view of customer interactions, behaviors, and preferences. In an AI-powered contact center, real-time insights play a critical role in maximizing customer satisfaction.
For example, real-time insights allow agents to understand customer needs, preferences, and behavior patterns to offer personalized and efficient service. The AI system can monitor customer interactions and collect data such as call duration, customer sentiment, and frequently asked questions, providing real-time insights to agents.
Based on these insights, the AI system can suggest next-best actions to agents, such as offering promotions or making product recommendations. This allows agents to offer a more personalized and relevant experience to customers, reducing the time it takes to resolve an issue and improving customer satisfaction.
Real-time insights can help organizations identify potential pain points in the customer journey, allowing them to take proactive steps to resolve these issues before they negatively impact customer satisfaction.
