Cabify Teams Up with Nuance to Deploy Conversational AI to Supercharge Digital Experience

Nuance® announced Cabify, one of the fastest growing ride-hailing companies, has deployed its Intelligent Engagement Platform to open up new digital customer service channels and enhance engagements with customers. Nuance’s advanced Conversational AI combines seamlessly automated and human-assisted engagements, providing personalised service to customers across digital channels.

Cabify has leveraged Nuance’s expertise to deploy ‘ABI’, its own virtual assistant, to manage customer requests and questions in several languages – ensuring human agents have the time and space to tackle more complex services. ABI helps by quickly answering riders’ and drivers’ queries spanning driver document upload, general app doubts, etc. The deployment has already resulted in faster customer communications with 80 percent of end-user requests through ABI reaching first contact resolution. 93 percent of requests were also correctly recognised for their intent by the Nuance-enabled virtual assistant, enabling Cabify to utilize its human agents more efficiently.

Nuance’s technology provides the necessary flexibility for Cabify in customer service and onboarding operations in eleven different countries, in several languages, while enabling integration with different platforms like Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp so customers can contact Cabify easily across channels. ABI is now available in all the markets where the mobility company operates: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Spain, Mexico, Panama, Peru, Uruguay and the Dominican Republic.

“In the mobility market, being able to provide fast and efficient customer service is critical and it is imperative that end-users and drivers can get direct responses to their concerns quickly – using the channels they are most comfortable with. Nuance has helped us achieve this with its Conversational AI capabilities,” said Jacobo Domínguez Blanco, Vice President of Customer Experience and Operations, Cabify. “With the deployment of our virtual assistant, we’ve been able to move away from traditional channels, automating the process of responding to customer queries. As well as getting faster feedback, customers have benefitted from the more efficient use of our human agents – who are now freed up to tackle more complex or personalised requests.”

Robert Weideman, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Nuance’s Enterprise Division said, “Our goal is to help organisations free their employees to be their best selves, delivering strategic outcomes for their businesses and we’re delighted to be able to help Cabify do just that. As a company with ambitious growth plans, Cabify has placed the customer experience at the heart of this expansion, something we absolutely believe is the right decision.”
