Paul Malt, chief information officer, Auto & General, says that telephony remains core to the company’s business, but there has been a significant increase in volume of email, web chat and social media-based engagements as customers demand an "omni-channel experience on their own terms".
Malt indicates that transformation of the company’s contact centre might, in the future, involve the use of smart chat bots and artificial intelligence (AI) to complement services provided to customers.
"Consumers are moving to an omni-channel environment where they change between channels regularly so we need to be flexible and deal with them how they choose. Because Avaya Breeze is an end-to-end environment, it allows us to very rapidly prototype applications and functionalities that easily tie into our wider communications environment. We are using the platform to build features that integrate within our contact centre protocols and processes. People’s time is limited, so Breeze’s ability to make interactions more efficient is critical to the value we can deliver to customers."
