Business Challenge

Our client was facing multiple challenges with customer service operations. In the current world, they were using their website and IVR channel to attend and support customers with appointed human agents. The process was time-consuming for end customers and our client had to bear huge costs to keep the operations up and running. They were exploring ways to automate their customer service process to reduce their call center costs and improve service with faster real-time responses.

At the backend, they have SAP and HCL Commerce systems. The challenge was to use the existing infrastructure i.e. the website, IVR Channel and backend system to create a seamless and efficient customer service experience.

Enter IBM Watson Powered Customer Service Conversational AI Chat & Voice Bot Solution

Streebo, leveraged the leading AI powered Natural Language Processing (NLP) engine – IBM Watson Assistant and rolled out a comprehensive and robust, smart bot solution to transform our clients’ customer service. The Conversational Interface is Voice and Chat enabled with a high degree of accuracy (90+%).

This implementation of a customer self-service Conversation Interface is to extend client’s existing business functions and processes on a Voice and Chat interface using their existing customer service channels i.e. their website, mobile application and IVR.

The Al-powered Conversation Interface will allow end-users/customers to process self-service transactions and get instant answers to their questions using speech & text-based natural language commands.
