Jabra launches AI-powered SaaS solution for contact centres
Jabra is launching a new Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution, Engage AI. Engineered to transform contact centre call experiences, the solution employs artificial intelligence (AI) technology that provides real-time insights to improve customer calls and support employee wellbeing.
The launch comes on the back of Jabra's findings on how 76% of customers who contact customer service do so over the phone and how voice interaction remains the preferred channel for customers.
With customer experience being a key performance indicator for businesses, Engage AI is built to journey with agents to improve customer satisfaction through monitoring elements like tone of voice.
Engage AI assesses both the caller and agents conversation and levels of engagement. The solution, which works well with most contact centre systems, provides an instant measurement of the customer experience and live coaching on how to manage the given situation.
When agents deliver a friendly and energetic voice, it demonstrably improves customer satisfaction and conversion rates, and reduces call length, thereby saving costs.
Such real-time insights allow agents to adjust their approach during calls immediately to better suit the callers needs as well as post-call in the form of engagement scores to understand areas of improvement.
The engagement score and data can also be integrated into existing analytics platforms via API.
The SaaS solution comes with tools to support skill development and improve team management. Contact centre agents can get access to self-coaching assessments and performance evaluations which are strength-based, inclusive and personalised for each agent and team.
Contact centre supervisors can also gain instantaneous actionable insights into their teams performance to further improve customer experience on an individual and team level.
On top of receiving real-time updates on praiseworthy and coachable moments, supervisors can use the platform to monitor employee wellbeing based on real-time event updates and dashboards with call analytics and data.
Anders Hvelplund, SVP for Call Centric Solutions at Jabra, says, "Our partners in the contact centre space are obsessed with their customers and are constantly seeking ways to enhance the customer experience.
"At Jabra, we believe in getting it right from the first second and see the value in improving conversation qualities. Engage AI has cracked the code of human sentiment, enabling agents to react instantly and be the best version of themselves. We are also keen to use the platform to bring supervisors and agents closer together in this era of remote working and create more opportunities for coaching."
The AI model is based on over 20 years of research and millions of analysed conversations by voice AI scientists at audEERING, a Munich-based technology operation.
Jabra Engage AI is designed to be easy to implement as it works across all dialects and languages. It is ideal with Jabra Engage headsets, which enable additional features such as measuring background noise, but works well with all professional headsets, the company states.
