Infosys lanza AssistEdge, el primer producto de canal cruzado integrado para centros de contactos

BANGALORE, India, LONDRES, NUEVA YORK, January 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

- Infosys lanza AssistEdge, el primer producto de canal cruzado integrado para centros de contactos para transformar la experiencia de servicio al cliente

Infosys ha anunciado hoy el lanzamiento de AssistEdge, un producto único que transforma los centros de contactos para ofrecer una experiencia de canal cruzada integrada a sus clientes. La capacidad de contextualización, tecnología de auto-cuidado y tablero intuitivo ayuda a mejorar la experiencia del cliente e impulsar la productividad de agentes, que son retos persistentes para la industria del centro de llamadas.

Según varios informes de la industria, los clientes dicen que tener que repetir sus problemas a medida que su consulta pasa por varios agentes es el aspecto más frustrante de tratar con los centros de contacto. Esto se magnifica al cambiar entre canales de medios tradicionales y nuevos. Utilizando una capacidad de contextualización innovadora, AssistEdge integra el historial del cliente de varios canales y lo presenta a un agente del centro de llamadas dentro de un tablero de ventana única. Esta distintiva capacidad permite una resolución de consultas más rápida y ayuda a las compañías a reducir significativamente el tiempo medio de gestión de llamadas.

AssistEdge capacita a los clientes a resolver problemas por ellos mismos a través de un potente motor de auto-cuidado. Equipado con mecanismos de resolución de problemas de texto interactivo, visual y vídeo, también ofrece recomendaciones de foros sociales relevantes y comunidades para la asistencia de homólogo a homólogo. Esto ayuda a reducir significativamente los volúmenes de llamadas del centro de contactos.

AssistEdge incorpora un algoritmo de enrutamiento inteligente que analiza y dirige consultas que requieren asistencia de expertos, en tiempo real, para el experto adecuado basado en parámetros como destreza, geografía, prioridad y carga de trabajo. Esto ayuda a una resolución más rápida de las llamadas, junto con un mejor entendimiento de la historia de interacción del cliente y las preferencias sociales, creando oportunidades para una mayor venta cruzada y ascendente.

El despliegue temprano en una compañía Fortune 500 ha ofrecido:

  • Una resolución de consultas más rápida que reduce el tiempo medio de gestión de llamadas hasta un 50 por ciento
  • Volúmenes de llamadas del centro de contacto reducidas en un 25 por ciento
  • Ahorros anuales estimados de más del 25 por ciento
  • Devolución en menos de tres meses  

AssistEdge está disponible en premisa y en una cloud privada alojada.

Sanjay Purohit, vicepresidente y director globalde Productos, Plataformas y Soluciones para Infosys, presentó el producto en la octava IQPC Call Center Summit anual de 2013 en Orlando, Florida. Purohit dijo: "Los clientes no solo esperan un servicio rápido sino que también quieren que las compañías les conozcan íntimamente. La gestión de experiencia de servicio al cliente está también ganando una importancia significativa con la mayor influencia de los medios de noticias. Con nuestra capacidad de contextualización y tecnología de auto-cuidado patentada, estamos permitiendo a las compañías aportar una experiencia integrada, de canal cruzado y personalizada a sus clientes. El lanzamiento de AssistEdge acelera nuestra estrategia de aportar productos innovadores que ayudan a nuestros clientes a transformar sus negocios para el mañana."

En el caso de Openreach, a BT Group Company, utilizar AssistEdge ha mostrado un salto cuantitativo en la productividad del asesor y la experiencia integrada para clientes en canales. Colin Buchanan, director de Service Management Business Operations and Transformation, Openreach dijo: "Siempre buscamos formas de mejorar el servicio para nuestros clientes simplificando los sistemas que utiliza nuestro personal. Los asesores tienen que acceder a varios sistemas utilizando diferentes procesos de navegación, todo el curso de un empleo. Infosys AssistEdge nos ayudó a simplificar el trabajo ofreciendo una sola interfaz para nuestro personal y facilitando a nuestros asesores navegar por los sistemas. Nuestros asesores ya pueden completar llamadas más rápido con menos transferencias. El despliegue del nuevo producto nos ha ayudado a mejorar la experiencia para los clientes y usuarios y se logró en un período muy corto de tiempo."

There will be 50 billion Internet connected devices by 2020. Today, every manufacturer has a propriety protocol and an app. How do we securely integrate these "things" into our lives and businesses in a way that we can easily control and manage? Even better, how do we integrate these "things" so that they control and manage each other so our lives become more convenient or our businesses become more profitable and/or safe? We have heard that the best interface is no interface. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, Co-Founder & CTO at Octoblu, Inc., will discuss how these devices generate enough data to learn our behaviors and simplify/improve our lives. What if we could connect everything to everything? I'm not only talking about connecting things to things but also systems, cloud services, and people. Add in a little machine learning and artificial intelligence and now we have something interesting...
Last week, while in San Francisco, I used the Uber app and service four times. All four experiences were great, although one of the drivers stopped for 30 seconds and then left as I was walking up to the car. He must have realized I was a blogger. None the less, the next car was just a minute away and I suffered no pain. In this article, my colleague, Ved Sen, Global Head, Advisory Services Social, Mobile and Sensors at Cognizant shares his experiences and insights.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) irreversibly encoded. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, will look at how this identity problem can be solved and discuss ways to use existing web identities for real-time communication.
From telemedicine to smart cars, digital homes and industrial monitoring, the explosive growth of IoT has created exciting new business opportunities for real time calls and messaging. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Ivelin Ivanov, CEO and Co-Founder of Telestax, will share some of the new revenue sources that IoT created for Restcomm – the open source telephony platform from Telestax. Ivelin Ivanov is a technology entrepreneur who founded Mobicents, an Open Source VoIP Platform, to help create, deploy, and manage applications integrating voice, video and data. He is the co-founder of TeleStax, an Open Source Cloud Communications company that helps the shift from legacy IN/SS7 telco networks to IP-based cloud comms. An early investor in multiple start-ups, he still finds time to code for his companies and contribute to open source projects.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to create new business models as significant as those that were inspired by the Internet and the smartphone 20 and 10 years ago. What business, social and practical implications will this phenomenon bring? That's the subject of "Monetizing the Internet of Things: Perspectives from the Front Lines," an e-book released today and available free of charge from Aria Systems, the leading innovator in recurring revenue management.
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges.
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at 6th Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, to discuss how IoT, Big Data and deployments are processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines.
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices – computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors – connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. With major technology companies and startups seriously embracing IoT strategies, now is the perfect time to attend @ThingsExpo in Silicon Valley. Learn what is going on, contribute to the discussions, and ensure that your enterprise is as "IoT-Ready" as it can be!
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Erik Lagerway, Co-founder of Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services to the modern P2P RTC era of OTT cloud assisted services.
While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehension and conference efficiency.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, will discuss single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example to explain some of these concepts including when to use different storage models.
