Why Businesses are Embracing AI Assistants in the Contact Centre

CTO & Head of AI
As we inch out of lockdown, organisations in every sector are faced with the challenge of predicting what the workplace of the future will look like. How soon can staff return to offices and will they all want to? Will consumer habits developed during the pandemic – notably, an increased reliance on digital channels – endure?
For those responsible for the customer experience, this creates a dilemma around resourcing, and getting the optimal level of staff for unpredictable levels of demand. One option is to build a more flexible workforce – but this incurs higher costs. In our view, an increasingly viable alternative is to use virtual agents, powered by artificial intelligence to work with and complement your staff.
