In a recent op-ed in the French financial newspaper Les Echos, IPsoft Director of Development for France, Cyril Parcellier, laid out a vision for the future of work. He imagines hybrid teams (or a hybrid workforce as we sometimes call it) in which Artificial Intelligence (AI)-powered digital colleagues like Amelia work alongside human colleagues to benefit the company, customers and even the employees themselves.

In a hybrid workforce, digital colleagues take on the high-volume routine work and execute them at machine speed, while humans are freed to use their uniquely human skillsets (e.g., creativity, empathy and people skills). By adding these advanced forms of automation — including the automation of complex user engagements via a conversational interface — human colleagues are able spend more time on more rewarding tasks (i.e., non-mundane repeatable ones). This combination of scaled automation and human creativity inherently builds business value through more efficient processes and enhanced customer services.

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.
