Every agent can be your best agent
Your service agents are your most valuable contact center resource. Unfortunately, agents spend much of their time searching through multiple systems to find answers, bloating response time and frustrating customers. AI can automate the repetitive requests that eat up valuable time and help ensure agents are empowered to solve more complex customer problems.
Watson Assistant for agent assist harnesses the power of AI to bring your agents the relevant insights and information to respond to customer inquiries faster. Seamless integration across engagement channels and back-end systems automates responses via web or mobile chat, and can draw from your database or CRM—and even learn from past interactions by your best agents. The agent assistant bot can monitor all calls and suggest information or next steps before your agent asks. Best-in-class natural language understanding (NLU) and natural language processing (NLP) help recognize the intent, entities, and sentiment of your agents and customers in real time.
Agent assist in action
Scale the expertise and guidance of your best agents to every customer interaction. Watson Assistant can “listen in” on support conversations to surface relevant information in context while proactively advising agents in real-time, based on intents, entities, and customer sentiment within the discussion.
Support for your agents
Sometimes even experts need a little help. Connect Watson Assistant to your back-end systems and assembled knowledge to enable agents to engage with business processes or quickly extract insights from masses of existing documents or chat logs—all through natural conversation.
Analyze call volume, agent performance, and spot trends in customer interactions and workload to optimize contact center performance and effectiveness. Efficiently train and support new agents to speed onboarding by embedding information in existing support channels, such as Intercom. Provide suggestions and manage simple tasks autonomously.
