"We found that our live agents are asked with the same routine, non-complex questions 40% of their time. Our assistant built on IBM Watson gives customers 24/7 access to resolve these issues and more importantly, it allows our human agents to focus on the questions that require more in-depth problem solving -improving our service to customers significantly," says Endesa Innovation, Technology and Partners Director, Jorge Honorio Domínguez.
"As energy companies spur innovation and accelerate digital transformation journeys, there is incredible potential to use AI for these important projects. They need an AI platform that is ready to scale, provides industry-specific capabilities and can quickly and easily be embedded into an organization's business process. With IBM Watson, Endesa is embracing AI to provide a superior experience to their customers," says IBM Global Business Services Utilities Cognitive Leader, Anselmo Trillo.
