Mitel®, a global leader in business communications, announced a series of enhancements to the company’s customer experience portfolio, including the launch of a new virtual agent, powered by Contact Center AI; expanded market availability of MiCloud Connect CX; and the introduction of Mitel Workforce Optimization.
The new product and market launches are aimed at helping businesses re-imagine and transform the customer journey through more intelligent, personalized and seamless interactions.
Improving customer experience, more than any other business initiative, has a direct impact on customer satisfaction and brand loyalty. A Mitel-commissioned survey of 5,000 adult consumers in five major global markets underscores this point. Respondents said they believe the main reason many brands fail to provide a great experience is because they do not recognize consumers make choices on the experiences that companies provide first, and the products and services offered second.
Mitel’s customer experience portfolio creates more ways for businesses of all sizes to leverage cloud communications combined with IoT, AI, and other emerging technologies to deliver on customer must-haves and shape better experiences.
New virtual agent powered by Contact Center AI
Mitel’s collaboration with Google Cloud brings a higher level of intelligence and insight to customer interactions. With the global launch of a new virtual agent, powered by Contact Center AI, for Mitel contact centre applications, businesses now have an efficient, simple-to-deploy and cost-effective solution they can operate without the need for a team of data scientists. Using natural language understanding capabilities, the solution makes it easy to deliver conversational, self-service experiences around the clock and eliminates the frustrations associated with some traditional self-service systems where customers must navigate complex menus.
MiCloud Connect CX
Mitel’s CCaaS solution, first introduced in North America, will be available globally beginning in fourth quarter 2019 for both UCaaS and UC platforms. MiCloud Connect CX blends Mitel’s call control expertise and extensive global network of resources with Talkdesk’s modern cloud architecture and consumer-like usability. The all-in-one solution combines communications and contact centre tools into a single application for seamless customer service through any channel, anywhere. By tapping public cloud technologies, the solution offers fast, streamlined deployments and allows UC customers to leverage their existing communications technology investment.
Mitel Workforce Optimization
Equipping business with more tools for deriving actionable customer insights, Mitel introduces a full suite of applications powered by ASC Technologies to record, analyze and evaluate interactions. Omnichannel interaction recording, quality management, speech analytics, coaching and learning applications enable contact centre managers to elevate customer experiences and increase staff productivity. With the ability to resolve customer calls more quickly, businesses can improve satisfaction and net promoter scores and deepen customer loyalty.
”BSN Sports has become the largest distributor, manufacturer and marketer of sporting goods equipment and apparel in the U.S. Following a catastrophic flood at our corporate headquarters, we deployed a new Mitel solution for our phone system and omnichannel platform,” said Matt White, Director of Contact Center, BSN Sports. “We chose Mitel because of their technology and ability to scale and grow with us. The technology we have from Mitel enables our agents to be more productive throughout the day and give an incredible experience to our customers.”
The Mitel solution, by its very nature, was what we were trying to deliver. And the fact that it can hand over to a human — it’s really ideal for someone who wants to implement a chatbot in a great way,” said Luke Morris, Graduate Data Officer, North Yorkshire County Council. “It was a great accelerator that we didn’t have to build ourselves. The Mitel solution saved us a lot of time from a development perspective. We’ve gotten quite far quite quickly.”
