Contact Center as a Service (CCaaS) - CX
Omni-Channel Contact Center with Self Service Chatbots & Conversational AI
Customer Journey Analytics
In a recent CX survey, top-performing organizations ranked customer journey analytics as their second-highest CX-related investment priority.
Visualize and measure every customer's journey — from beginning to end - and have the tools to provide the best possible customer experience (CX).
Customer journey analytics is the science of analyzing customer behavior across touchpoints and over time to measure the impact of customer behavior on business outcomes.
This approach continues to gain momentum as enterprises recognize the value of customer journeys as a means to monitor customer experience performance and identify opportunities for improvement and a lot more.
Workforce Engagement Management (WEM)
Delivering exceptional experiences doesn’t stop with the customer — today’s employees expect them, too.
Workforce engagement management (WEM) makes it easy to create great employee experiences. WEM focuses on the human side of your contact center to improve employee engagement.
These essential customer-facing departments need a flexible and adaptable WFM solution that keeps pace with the transforming business world. And it simplifies operations while increasing efficiency.
Total Quality Management (TQM)
Boost Customer Satisfaction – Customers are more satisfied when they receive quality products that fulfill their expectations. In turn, high customer satisfaction may lead to a rise in market dominance, revenue growth via upselling, and customer-led word-of-mouth marketing.
Strengthen Culture – TQM-compliant organizations develop and foster several fundamental values centered on quality management and continual improvement.
Manage Costs – Companies save on customer assistance, product replacements, field service, and the design of product fixes as a result of decreased production defects.
The cost savings are transferred to the bottom line, resulting in increased profit margin.
Contact centers are facing a growing volume of digital transactions from a constantly expanding number of digital channels.
Meeting customer demand in any business relies on having good data to determine when your customers contact you, how your customers contact you, and how long those interactions take.

What are Chatbots?
A chatbot can be defined as an AI-based computer program that simulates human conversations and has the intelligence to answer questions and more like a live person.
They are also known as digital assistants that understand human capabilities.
Bots interpret the user intent, process their requests, and give prompt relevant answers.
Bots can communicate through voice as well as text and can be deployed across websites, applications, and messaging channels such as Facebook Messenger, Twitter, or WhatsApp.
The survey showed that chatbots have entered the mainstream, with 67% of consumers having used chatbots at least once in the past year.
And 81% of chatbot users said their most recent support experience was positive.
Consumers who’ve used chatbots have vastly more positive experience than a negative one which matches the experience of non-chatbot users.
"84% of consumers are more willing to do business with companies that offer self-service solutions, but only 61% say these solutions are easy and convenient. Are you listening to them?"

Meet Zoom Virtual Agent, the next Evolution of Solvvy
Solvvy’s next-gen chatbot and support automation platform is making traditional keyword and rules-based chatbots obsolete.
Since Zoom acquired Solvvy last year, many people have asked why Zoom, a company that is the gold standard for team collaboration and meetings, would look to bring Solvvy’s advanced conversational AI technology and team into its portfolio. And conversely, what led Solvvy to join forces with Zoom?
Zoom Virtual Agent, an intelligent conversational AI chatbot solution, uses natural language processing and machine learning to accurately understand and painlessly resolve issues for customers.
Zoom Virtual Agent works 24/7 on multiple support channels to deliver fast, personalized customer experiences. That means it also reduces call and ticket volume for human agents, which can help businesses save significant amounts on operational costs, especially during a time when budgets are tightening in almost every industry.
Unlike many chatbots on the market, Zoom Virtual Agent uses AI to correctly interpret what your customers are asking, regardless of how they word their requests.
The platform understands customers’ intent—and it becomes more accurate over time, as it learns from every interaction. And it allows customers to rapidly build custom intents or choose from rich existing libraries.
But Zoom Virtual Agent goes beyond understanding to resolution. It delivers accurate and conversational resolutions and answers from day one. By crawling your knowledge bases, FAQs, and ticket history (plus any documentation you choose) before launch, Zoom Virtual Agent intelligently guides your customers to the right resolution.
These resolutions often take the form of highly personalized experiences—customized flows and messages for unique customer segments based on their profile and data attributes.
Zoom Virtual Agent also goes well beyond self-service. It embraces the “human + AI” model, and seamlessly hands off to agents when needed, with all the context required for these agents to continue the conversation without asking customers to repeat themselves.
In many cases, it can also ensure that the right agents with the right skills are working on these issues. Finally, Zoom Virtual Agent delivers industry-leading analytics that gives you a true “voice of the customer” with actionable outcomes.
The Solvvy and Zoom teams have been working hard, together, to bring Solvvy’s advanced AI capabilities to the Zoom platform, and more specifically, Zoom Contact Center.
Zoom Virtual Agent takes the best of Solvvy and adds many powerful capabilities from the Zoom platform that we’ll tell you more about in the weeks ahead.
Zoom is more than video meetings but their product portfolio has dramatically expanded over the last few years. Today, Zoom has become a robust platform for businesses.
Zoom Virtual Agent will be available in early 2023.

WFM for Dummies!
With the evolution of technology and social media platforms, contact centers face a common challenge from their customers.
The challenge is trying to determine which type of channel their customers will use and how to monitor, measure, and calculate staffing requirements to meet these demands.
As these elements grow more intricate, contact centers without the right processes or technology will struggle to do this in an accurate and efficient way.
Since the early days of contact centers, the channels used by customers have changed very little. Traditional methods such as calls remain the most popular channel, and we have seen faxes and snail mail replaced with email.
Advancements of social media platforms and other new channels of technology such as chat, social media, and messenger are on the rise.
This presents some exceedingly difficult challenges because these new digital channels don’t conform to the traditional metrics and calculations that have been used for so many years. It also adds another layer of complexity in terms of skills and employees’ abilities to adopt to these changes.
Forecast, schedule, adapt, respond, and engage with the intelligent workforce management software.
