Yet our relationships with voice assistants and chatbots remain transactional, limited to answering questions or facilitating product returns. What if you could use AI to make connections in virtual worlds as interactive and social as connections in real life? What if an AI character could help you forge relationships with customers and unlock deeper user engagement?

How to Power Up Your CX with Conversational AI

The service gap is widening. Why? Enterprise contact centers struggle to meet today’s demand for instant, personalized service across channels. 66% of customers are frustrated before they even start talking with a customer service rep. Conversational AI is rewriting the customer service rulebook. This doesn't mean replacing one system with another to do the same process better or faster, but to create entirely new processes and possibilities out of these new opportunities. Join Derek Roberti, VP of Technology at Cognigy, as he explains that providing the CX your customers expect boils down to three main pillars. Rethink your strategy into one that puts AI at the heart of your contact center, which is customer-driven, not machine-led.

Why Conversational Interfaces Matter

Interfaces are an important part of our daily lives from text-based interfaces (like the command line) to graphical interfaces (like websites and apps), but interfaces aren't just about computing. We interact with visual interfaces all the time, for example, road signs. You might interface with your dog through play or pets. We interface through spoken words in conversation. Conversations are natural between people, but conversing with computers can bring more people into the world of computing.
