Remember when working from home sounded like a dream? I bet in your dream it didn’t look anything like what we are faced with today. Sharing your prized workspace with your significant other and with your children (oh listen to that clarinet!) who are now being homeschooled.

Organizations around the globe are struggling to manage the rapid influx of customer outreach resulting from COVID-19.

Google’s Dialogflow environment is a great place to build natural-language understanding applications that automate both text-based (chatbot) and voice-based interactions. All of the voice-enabled AI environments in wide use today (Google’s Dialogflow, IBM’s Watson Assistant and Amazon’s Lex are the big 3) enable voice communications by going through a 3-step process, where spoken input is first transcribed to text by a speech-to-text engine (STT), then given to a bot for analysis, and finally then sent through a text-to-speech (TTS) engine to produce audio back to the user.Read More
Empower your callers with an option to receive a call back rather than wait on hold until an agent is free to talk to them. 75% of customers now choose to leave their phone number and receive a return call rather than wait on hold.

The quality of the customer experience improves with the Caller Elected Callback solution and saves time, keeps frustration levels down and gives the caller a positive experience.
