Amelia CEO: Be Bold in Your AI Deployments

January 30, 2020 • 1 minute read

Companies are struggling to generate ROI from their AI projects because they have not invested nearly enough in sophisticated AI deployments. This is the assertion made by Amelia CEO and Founder Chetan Dube in an op-ed for TechSpective. In the post, Chetan urges companies to look beyond single use cases in favor of automated processes for far-reaching business goals. Read the article to learn more.

As with any complex technology, implementing an AI system requires at least some appetite for risk. Research by Gartner, IDC and MIT Sloan Management Review/Boston Consulting Group all find that businesses struggle to generate ROI from their AI projects.

Is this an indication that these projects are fool’s errands? Quite the opposite. Companies are struggling to generate ROI from their AI projects because they have not invested nearly enough in sophisticated AI deployments. This is the assertion made by Amelia CEO and Founder Chetan Dube in an op-ed for TechSpective. In the post, Chetan urges companies to look beyond single use cases in favor of automated processes for far-reaching business goals.

“Companies are struggling with AI because they are taking half measures, only implementing them in small use cases or in environments where the data is insufficient to power its success,” he writes. “That’s causing their businesses to flounder.”

Chetan references Telefónica, the multinational telecom, and its deployment of digital voice assistants (using Amelia) as call center whisper agents as a prime example of how to use AI to solve a large-scale issue. Telefónica’s intelligent voice assistant fields 4.5 million mobile calls per month, day or night.

“By identifying customer call abandonment as a key issue and tackling the problem with a cognitive AI solution, Telefónica was able to use AI at scale, saving money and improving customer experience in the process,” Chetan writes.

The Intelligent Contact Center

Companies have spent decades implementing Interactive Voice Response (IVR) systems in their call and customer care centers, but they've proven unable to keep up with customers' expectations.

In this white paper, we examine the benefits of an Intelligent Contact Center, where companies utilize Conversational AI-powered virtual agents to provide first-line resolution and support for customers, and augment human employees through AI and automation.

Download our paper to learn the benefits of this approach and why current IVR systems simply will not cut it in today’s hyper-paced digital landscape.
