News : Be My Eyes Integrates Be My AI™ into its First Contact Center

#contactcenterworld, @Microsoft

San Francisco, CA, USA, Nov 15, 2023 - Be My Eyes is announcing the successful deployment of Be My AI™, a visual assistance tool powered by OpenAI’s GPT-4 vision model. Beginning this month, Microsoft Disability Answer Desk callers who are blind or low vision can now use Be My AI™ to handle all types of customer service calls, involving highly complex use cases on everything from Excel spreadsheet formulas and interpreting product instructions and diagrams, to rebooting a laptop or installing and updating software, and much more.

"Microsoft is proud to be the first company to integrate Be My AI™ into our customer service with the Disability Answer Desk. The integration of Be My AI™ creates an innovative, fast and efficient way for disabled customers to receive assistance from Microsoft"

"Our new AI-powered accessible customer service model is producing remarkable results for not only one of the world’s largest and most innovative companies, but also for a community of blind and low vision consumers," said Mike Buckley, CEO of Be My Eyes. "Be My AI™ is the customer service gold standard for companies that want to assist blind and low vision consumers, and we are incredibly thankful to Microsoft for their leadership, willingness to partner on Accessible CX solutions and their help communicating the benefits of Be My AI™ to other enterprises so we can advance our mission to make the world more accessible."

"OpenAI is proud to work with Be My Eyes. They've used our AI models to significantly enhance the daily lives of people with low vision or blindness," said Brad Lightcap, COO at OpenAI. "Their commitment to making technology more accessible showcases a remarkable blend of empathy and innovation, underscoring the potential of AI when directed by an understanding of community needs. We’re glad to see By My Eyes deploy ‘Be My AI™’ successfully."

With the new addition of Be My AI™ at the front end of the experience, blind and low vision consumers can receive rapid, automated support for Microsoft-related products and services through AI-based natural language conversations. Be My AI™ can also provide contextual, advice-based guidance on the request at-hand.

"Microsoft is proud to be the first company to integrate Be My AI™ into our customer service with the Disability Answer Desk. The integration of Be My AI™ creates an innovative, fast and efficient way for disabled customers to receive assistance from Microsoft," said Jenny Lay-Flurrie, Microsoft’s Chief Accessibility Officer. "By combining Microsoft's expertise and the innovative solutions from Be My AI™, we are empowering independence for people with disabilities."

"The large and growing number of blind and low vision people globally, roughly equivalent to the population of the United States, means every company, non-profit, academic institution, and public sector organization has both a moral and business imperative to better serve our community," said Mark Riccobono, President of the National Federation of the Blind. "The deep commitment of Be My Eyes to have their product development driven by the lived experience of blind people is truly transformative. As a result, Be My AI™ is one of the most exciting technological assistance solutions we have ever evaluated, and given the initial results in the customer service environment, which has historically been a significant source of frustration for blind consumers, we encourage every organization to evaluate this remarkable tool as an important option."
