Customer Experience Automation to Revolutionize Your Business

Customer Experience Automation (CXA) uses technology to automate and enhance customer interactions and services, providing personalized, efficient, and consistent experiences across various communication channels.

AI customer service has transformed the once frustrating and manual customer support process. Gone are the days of long wait times and disjointed experiences. Now, customers enjoy prioritized, efficient service without the traditional hassles.

For the agent or representative on the other end of the call, frustration was part of the job. Tasks were often repetitive, tedious, and time-consuming—if you were lucky. If the customer issue was complex, you could find yourself “at sea” in trying to get answers from prior experience. Information was siloed and communication gaps prevented the timely sharing of needed information.

Reduce Customer Friction with Customer Experience Automation

And for good reasons. In the day of Siri and Alexa, customers expect superior service experience and fast resolutions to their problems and requests. Organizations were eager to reduce bloated costs in the customer support organization. With low customer satisfaction, high contact center costs, and a lack of self-service, the situation cried out for automation to rescue customers and agents from Frustration Island.

Early efforts at automating customer experience often ended up in a comedian’s stand-up routine. People might find themselves communicating with a mechanized entity—a primitive bot with limited language capabilities; that misinterpreted spoken words or intent. The bot might offer only opaque, scripted, and inaccurate responses. Frustrated customers would raise their voices—feeling a little foolish and even guilty for shouting at a bot.

Why Automating Customer Service Improves CX

Before the AI customer experience could change meaningfully for the better, companies had to realize and acknowledge that Customer Service was not a banishment, a necessary evil, or a chore, but an opportunity to build and strengthen the relationship with that customer. Automation offers a path to relieve the frustration and tedium that afflicted the customer service agent and meet customer needs promptly. Measures of customer satisfaction could become a positive barometer of progress rather than numbers to be dreaded.

Because customer service was once viewed as a cost center, it didn’t receive the attention it deserved as a vital investment. But Customer Service AI that leverages machine learning, natural-language understanding (NLU), and natural language processing (NLP) has now matured to help analyze customer sentiment and customer feedback at a scale, precision, and speed that humans can’t equal. They enable the gold standard of self-service, automation of complex tasks, and shortened response times.
