Contact center agents at a logistics and delivery company were overwhelmed by an avalanche of inbound calls, leading to long wait times and frustrated customers. The company’s contact center systems lacked interactive voice response (IVR) and automation capabilities.

The organization wanted to add self-service options to lighten their agents’ workloads, boost productivity, and enhance customer experiences (CX). To achieve that, they turned to a generative AI (genAI) platform in our portfolio. The genAI solution automatically routes the company’s incoming call traffic and resolves 30 percent of those requests with self-service options for obtaining product information and shipping updates.

The genAI solution does the work of 10 contact center agents per day and saves the delivery company over $730,000 annually by automating customer interactions. If you want to similarly slash spending, enhance CX, and lighten the workload for your contact center agents, you should consider deploying the same platform.
