News : Vodafone PT-TechSee Partnership Brings Innovation to the Customer Care Center
New York, NY, USA, July, 2019 -- Vodafone PT, a communications service provider that delivers fixed, mobile, TV and integrated communication and entertainment services to Portuguese residential and commercial customers, in partnership with TechSee, a provider in Intelligent Visual Assistance, announced the launch of a contact center technology to further enhance the Vodafone customer experience.
Vodafone Visual Support, powered by TechSee, enables a customer to use their smartphone camera to show the agent exactly what they see in their physical environment via a simple screen tap – no downloads, app installation or account login required. The agent can then identify the issue and visually guide the customer using augmented reality (AR) tools, resulting in the prompt resolution of a wide range of technical and billing issues.

This launch is an outgrowth of the successful global Vodafone-TechSee partnership that commenced in 2016,
Vodafone PT has deployed TechSee's technology across a range of business units. Initial use cases enable Vodafone agents to utilize TechSee's functionalities to assist consumers with fixed line, internet and TV-related issues. Future plans include integration of TechSee's computer vision AI capabilities – for both agents and customers – to power contact center automation and customer self-service.
According to Hugo Pinto, Vodafone's Customer Operations Officer, "Vodafone is committed to providing our customers with the best support experience possible, and TechSee is a great enabler of our digital customer care strategy. With Vodafone Visual Support powered by TechSee, our agents will be able to provide more effective and efficient service and a better customer experience to our consumers. We look forward to seeing the same positive results as have been demonstrated in other Vodafone markets."
Ziv Orr, TechSee's VP Business Development, said, "We are very excited to extend our Vodafone relationship to Portugal, and to transforming the delivery of technical customer support in this exciting market. Using TechSee's innovative Visual Assistance solution, Vodafone professionals are now able to resolve more technical issues on the first call, avoid technician visits in many cases, and deliver an optimal customer experience. It's a classic win-win."
