What’s the role of AI in call centres?

The main aim of a call centre is typically either to provide customers with support or to make sales. However, many call centre workers spend tedious hours on mundane admin tasks. This isn’t the best use of their time or skills.

With call centre AI, you can automate many of these repetitive tasks, allowing human staff to return to the interactions and problem-solving that software can’t handle. AI can also draw detailed insights about customers' or leads’ wants and needs and use what it learns to provide helpful suggestions in real time. Call centre AI can increase efficiency, improve job satisfaction, boost team performance, reduce costs, and give customers a better experience. Let’s take a closer look.

Top AI call centre features (and more) from Dialpad

Live transcriptions

Transcriptions are helpful in many ways. They enable staff to quickly revisit conversations to find out specific information or pinpoint where they could’ve done things better. Dialpad Ai can transcribe calls in real time, and even summarise each call for agents and supervisors, with key action items highlighted.

Sentiment analysis

Dialpad Ai uses Natural Language Processing (NLP) to undertake sentiment analysis and identify how a customer is feeling based on the tone of their voice and choice of words. This enables managers to see at a glance which calls are going well and which aren’t. This ensures that supervisors can jump in to save the day whenever a caller starts to get frustrated.

Real-time agent assists

Dialpad Ai is capable of searching through connected knowledge sources (including PDFs!) for data that can help an agent at any given moment. It can then present what it finds to the agent, in the shape of a Real-Time Assist popup, giving them the information they need to help customers exactly when needed.

CSAT surveys are a vital source of customer information, but it can be hard to get customers to fill them out. Dialpad Ai CSAT can infer customer satisfaction levels from all your customer conversations, which gives you a larger, more holistic idea of your overall customer satisfaction levels—without pestering your customers to fill out surveys.

How to get the most out of AI in your call centre

Call centre AI can bring fantastic benefits to your business, but you must use it properly. Here are some of the best ways you can make call centre AI work for your business:

Help customers to help themselves

AI can provide tailored advice and support for common issues your customers may be experiencing. Dialpad’s call centre AI provides intelligent IVR and conversational AI that enables customers to solve problems by themselves without having to wait on hold to talk to an agent.

If the AI isn’t capable of helping a customer out, it can direct the customer to the right human agent for their issue.

Automate mundane tasks

AI can improve agent productivity and satisfaction by taking over mundane tasks like call deflection and reporting. This frees up agents to focus on helping other humans.

Give real-time coaching, insights, and support

Trawling through platforms and databases to find the right information is one of the most time-consuming elements of any customer service or sales call. However, AI makes it easy.

With Dialpad and its cross-platform integrations, agents can get the information they need at the touch of a button. Moreover, the AI will frequently offer the data an agent needs without being prompted. It quickly learns what customers and agents need in particular situations and will offer real-time prompts, data, and support to enable the best possible outcome.

    How much is AI present in call centres?

    Uptake of AI in call centres has been high for several years, and it’s growing. AI can improve team performance and the customer experience in multiple ways, including generating deep, actionable insights about customer needs, taking on repetitive tasks like call scheduling and logging, and even monitoring customer satisfaction levels in real time.

    Many contact centres also use AI to enable customers to serve themselves. Through chatbots and intuitive question flows, AI can empower customers to solve problems themselves without the need to wait on hold for a human agent (although, should the customer need to speak to a human, the AI can direct them to the right agent for the job as quickly as possible).

    So, while AI has not replaced human-staffed call centres (and won’t do so!), the most successful companies are using it to optimise their operations and build the best possible customer service and sales teams.
