Passage AI has created a patent-pending natural language understanding and processing (NLU/NLP) platform that can be used to create a conversational interface for your business.

NICE inContact customers can use Passage.AI’s conversational interface integrated with CXone to further automate customer service and virtual assistant functionality. The Passage.AI platform enables them to:

  • Build a highly versatile AI chatbot, without writing a line of code, in just a few weeks
  • Automate routine and often mundane tasks and provide instantaneous responses to common questions, improving both employee and customer experience
  • Develop a bot or feature once and deploy it on 16 chat and voice platforms such as the web interface, iOS and Android apps, Facebook Messenger, Amazon Alexa and Google Home

Passage.AI’s bot-building tool utilizes AI and natural language processing technologies, requires no coding and can be deployed anywhere in as little as two weeks. Its sophisticated deep learning model enables Passage.AI bots to more readily understand a user, regardless of how they express themselves. Passage.AI understands natural language text and speech, creating an intelligent conversational interface capable of better identifying intents, extracting the most useful, pertinent and timely information, understanding and responding to queries and searching through vast amounts of data.

“NICE inContact is changing the game in the contact center space and we hope to do the same in the world of conversational AI,” said Ravi N. Raj, CEO of Passage.AI. “Our integration with CXone allows AI to be used to improve employee and customer satisfaction and dramatically lower customer service costs. A recent survey found that approximately 60 percent of customer service professionals plan to deploy chatbots in their department in the next three years. We believe chatbots will be the next major technology embraced in the contact center.”

DEVone offers partners broad tools and resources to enable them to create new applications on CXone, including extensive documentation and support, and access to an online developer community.
