Fall 2017 Release Features Intelligent Messaging, Support for Apple Business Chat and Vivid Speech Functionality
Today we rolled out the 7.ai Fall 2017 Release that supports Apple Business Chat, enabling companies to have a conversation with consumers using natural language, on more than a billion Apple devices worldwide. The Fall 2017 Release, available to all existing 7.ai clients as part of new capability additions to the platform, also includes Vivid Speech functionality that enhances interactive voice response (IVR) with intuitive visual experiences.
Brands and consumers are increasingly turning to digital communication as a way to simplify complex tasks. The Fall 2017 Release adds intelligent messaging capabilities to 7 Chat and 7 AIVA which enables consumer to pick up conversations where they left off, even if they are using a different device or revisiting a conversation months later. Because customers never have to start over, it results in a superior customer experience that helps drive brand loyalty.
The Vivid Speech feature available in 7 AIVA, augments IVR by providing consumers with a multimodal speech, touch, and visual experience that dramatically improves self-service automation. Vivid Speech enables companies to engage with customers visually, without having to download a mobile application. By providing callers on smartphones with a link to a personalized mobile Web page, Vivid Speech gives consumers the option to use touch as an input mode.
Vivid Speech gives consumers control and greatly improves customer satisfaction, while intelligent messaging enables effortless interactions no matter how or when consumers choose to engage with your company. This is achieved by transferring context over time and across devices, as exemplified by our support Apple Business Chat.
In addition to Vivid Speech and support for Apple Business Chat, the Fall 2017 Release includes the following enhancements:
- Enable continuous conversations with customers - Single-threaded conversations allow consumers to pick up right where they left off and spares them from having to start over. Companies using 7 Chat and 7 AIVA can now engage in continuous conversations with consumers in real-time and over time with the addition of intelligent messaging and because context is transferred, companies can better predict consumer intent
- Meet consumers where they are - With intelligent messaging it is now easier for brands to be connected with their customers across devices and with support for Apple Business Chat now available, consumers can to connect with companies through the more than one billion Apple devices worldwide. Apple users, who send 6.3 trillion iMessages each year, can search for a business using native apps like Maps, Siri and Safari, and return to the conversation anytime with always-accessible iMessage threads. 7.ai also provides support for Facebook Messenger, which has more than 1.2 billion active users.
- Extend the ease of messaging to all digital channels - Intelligent messaging enhances this capability by transforming the company’s digital communication to conversation-driven instead of channel-driven. By providing a single continuous thread of conversation across all branded digital channels, including web, mobile web, iOS and Android devices, companies can offer consumers a simple and logical conversation flow that lets them pick up where they last left off.
