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."

In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon, will discuss how as enterprise IT embraces other IoT-related technology trends, enterprises with i...
When it comes to the Internet of Things, hooking up will get you only so far. If you want customers to commit, you need to go beyond simply connecting products. You need to use the devices themselves to transform how you engage with every customer and how you manage the entire product lifecycle.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to make sense of it all.
One of the biggest impacts of the Internet of Things is and will continue to be on data; specifically data volume, management and usage. Companies are scrambling to adapt to this new and unpredictable data reality with legacy infrastructure that cannot handle the speed and volume of data. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Don DeLoach, CEO and president of Infobright, will discuss how companies need to rethink their data infrastructure to participate in the IoT, including: Data storage: Understanding the kinds of data: structured, unstructured, big/small? Analytics: What kinds and how responsiv...
Since 2008 and for the first time in history, more than half of humans live in urban areas, urging cities to become “smart.” Today, cities can leverage the wide availability of smartphones combined with new technologies such as Beacons or NFC to connect their urban furniture and environment to create citizen-first services that improve transportation, way-finding and information delivery. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Laetitia Gazel-Anthoine, CEO of Connecthings, will focus on successful use cases.

The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation.
