Chatbots And Virtual Agents

Chatbots and virtual assistants provide immediate answers to customer queries and automate a range of customer service requests, whether the customer contact is on the phone, online or on a mobile device. Gone are the days of having to repeat yourself multiple times or rephrasing your question to suit the bot. Automation uses natural language processing to deliver an informed, relevant, multi-stage conversation. Bots can troubleshoot technical support issues and walk customers through multi-stage resolution. They can also process a plethora of service tasks, such as account changes, returns, refunds, orders and appointment times. If conversation becomes complex, the customer is seamlessly transferred to the best-skilled advisor to resolve the request.

Give Field Service A Competitive Edge With Real-Time Comms For Customers

Waiting for a service visit can be one of the most aggravating experiences for your customers. Service centers become overloaded with inbound ETA calls and when a technician runs behind schedule, they can only look forward to unhappy customers, no-shows or missed appointments.

Instead delight your customers with real-time information on their service appointment with a simple link sent via email or text. No apps to download!  Make brand awareness, upsell and cross-sell in the field easy, dramatically improve Net Promoter Scores and lower inbound contact center calls with IFS Appointment Assistant.

Empower Your Agents To Deliver Faster, Smarter Service

Customer experience is a key differentiating factor for leading brands, yet too often staff on the frontline are met with myriad applications and databases to navigate in order to answer a single customer request. Getting the best from your contact center means giving your agents a simple, intuitive desktop application that brings together all the relevant, contextualized information they need in one place. The IFS Customer Engagement™ (CE) platform provides a unique solution, consolidating relevant customer data from across the organization alongside contact center channels and adding case management and other CRM functionality as required.

IFS CE sit as a layer above multiple back office systems to present customer service agents with data in a simple and intelligent “fit for purpose” application that guides them through complex requests and presents data at the appropriate point to support decisions.

The result is a customer service desktop that slashes the time an agent spends searching for data and processing requests, while empowering front office staff to do more and deliver truly transformed customer experience.
