*This is in partnership with BloombergQuint BrandStudio
Automation Anywhere, a leader in intelligent automation, has introduced Automation Anywhere for Contact Centres, a cloud-native, AI-driven automation solution that empowers enterprises to deliver better customer service faster.
Today, customers engage with contact service agents over an ever-growing number of digital channels. At the same time, organizations want to empower agents with a complete view of the customer. But the reality is complicated as call centre agents, whether virtual or human, must navigate apps, data sources, and multiple systems before they have the appropriate information required to respond.
Intelligently Automating ‘Hold Please’
“The last thing today’s leading brands want to do is ask a customer to ‘hold please,’ while service teams scramble to find account details, order history, or other information they need to quickly solve a customer problem,” said Mike Micucci, Chief Operating Officer, Automation Anywhere. “Our cloud-native automation platform works with all contact centre platforms to connect data and automate manual processes, empowering agents to solve problems, faster.”
Automation Anywhere for Contact Centres enables agents to become more efficient in finding, retrieving, and updating information, as well as executing client transactions quickly and accurately to speed delivery of services while reducing hold times. The solution is built on top of Automation 360, the leading cloud-native RPA platform, and includes AARI, a smart, no-code, easy-to-use interface that allows business users to automate tasks and interactions across multiple systems.
With AARI, a personal robotic assistant offering a single pane of glass for all automation, the solution can scale to support thousands of live or virtual agents and offers additional features, that:
Simplify live agent experiences: Automation 360 automates connections across multiple systems of record, including CRM, customer interactions, payment history, and authentications to provide the agent with a complete view of the customer. AARI enables backend automation to speed workflows, update records, and escalations.
Speed response time of virtual agents with complete data: Intelligent automation collects data from modern and legacy systems to speed virtual agent response time to customer questions, addresses complex inquiries accurately, and provides AI-recommended next-best actions. Virtual agents can go beyond simply answering questions to resolving end-to-end customer cases without human agent intervention.
Connect and scale across existing systems: Automation 360 connects and supports integrations for Google Cloud Contact Centre AI (CCAI), and Genesys Cloud CX, offering an increasing degree of flexibility to connect the dots for agents hamstrung by complexity.
“Using Automation Anywhere to automate our contact centre operations has allowed us to improve our average customer call handling times with superior data accuracy, and increase our transactions,” said Manish Pandya, Senior Vice President of Digital Transformation for TaskUs, a provider of outsourced digital services and next-generation customer experience (CX) to innovative and disruptive companies worldwide. “By automating account verification, case summary notes, next-step guidance, and post-call follow-up, we’ve improved the customer experience.
"Next-generation call centres need to support the scale of customer-facing operations while preserving the sense of personal touch and quality communications," said Amit Zavery, VP and Head of Platform, Google Cloud. "Through our partnership with Automation Anywhere and integration with Apigee we enable virtual agents to hold intelligent customer conversations that are informed by data gathered in the background from multiple processes and systems."
