What’s the role of AI in call centers and how is it evolving?

In the past, call centers required a lot of manual, repetitive work on the part of agents and supervisors. This includes everything from fielding hundreds or thousands of customer calls a day, to doing QA, to reporting on performance.

But today, artificial intelligence (AI), and more specifically, the development of AI-powered call center solutions, are actually able to automate many tasks traditionally handled by humans.

For example, AI-powered call center solutions can provide real-time coaching to agents as challenging questions come up, deflect calls, suggest dispositions, and more—and the use of AI in call centers has only just begun.

How to use call center automation and AI to help both agents and customers

Call center automation doesn’t just help you provide a better customer experience—it helps agents perform at a higher level too.

you manage large volumes of calls with ease, as well as provide customers with self-service options so they can get the answers they need without having to wait on hold. AI can take things a step further by providing agents with tools to better understand and assist customers.

Automate routine tasks for agents

One of the benefits of call center automation is that AI can improve agent productivity by taking care of routine tasks like call deflection, so agents can focus on the conversations that actually need them.

Let customers self-service

Given the choice, most people prefer to resolve issues on their own instead of waiting on hold or talking to agents. Call center AI can help you provide these self-service options, like intelligent IVR and conversational AI to give customers more ways to find answers easily on their own.

Give agents real-time help

Instead of making agents manually search for information to help customers, use AI call center technology that can identify keywords and pull up recommendations and answers live on calls.
