SEE HOW PEOPLE AND BOTS WORK TOGETHER:

Guidance and assistance:

When an employee starts a task, they can trigger a bot to collect data from different databases and systems relevant to the task. Employees check the results and let their bots perform an action. When exceptions occur, employees easily take over control. Agents now can focus on the customer and provide better service.

On-demand data processing:

An employee starts a data-intensive task, triggering a bot. The bot logs in and collects data from multiple systems. The employee reviews the results and authorizes the bot to generate a report or update the data. Error-prone data processing tasks get a speed and quality lift.

Virtual assistant:

An employee starts a task—such as dealing with an unsatisfied customer, the bot suggests questions for the agent to ask. As the agent and bot gather more information, the bot keeps making recommendations for the next best action. The bot helps the employee provide better service, and keeps the interaction aligned to your policies and processes.
