How Intelligent Automation is delivering true omni-channel experiences for customers & contact centres
Businesses need a solution that enables them to deliver a connected omnichannel experience to customers. Intelligent Automation could offer such a solution, combining Digital Workers (RPA) with other smart technologies such as Conversational AI Assistants, to deliver enhanced self-service through creating a unified hub for information and performing key tasks.
Humley, a UK-based Conversational AI software provider and VKY, an Intelligent Automation and RPA services provider, today announced their partnership to deliver innovative solutions to transform customer services and contact centre support for organisations.
Humley’s Conversational Assistants enable Shared Service teams to focus on the tasks that really matter, delivering strategic business value through automating repetitive and manually intensive tasks, giving employees instant access to all the information and processes they need in the channels they use.
With so many successes within back-office process automation, RPA has now turned its attention to more user lead experiences creating a major shift to front office automation.
How do organisations continue to support employees regardless of where they choose to work from? During the pandemic, many organisations quickly adapted to provide solutions for remote working, however many of these were quick fixes and came with many problems.
The addition of Humley’s HR Assistant to BambooHR’s marketplace enables organisations to access the transformation benefits of Conversational AI by providing a single point of contact for employee HR communications and processes.
Conversational Assistants can be deployed to a wide variety of communication channels from mobile and voice to social media platforms, meaning organisations can support their customers regardless of how they choose to interact with them.
There is a solution to help reduce the pressure on contact centres by enabling customers to more effectively self-serve and manage their requests without the need for human support. Conversational AI is the next evolution of chatbots, providing enhanced capabilities through its utilisation of Machine Learning and Natural Language Understanding and in the case of Humley’s solution, actionability through integrations with RPA and internal business systems.
With a Conversational AI Assistant organisations can deliver significant efficiencies and improve data access by providing a unified point of contact for Finance and Procurement tasks and processes.
