Consider a day in the life of a service agent

Traditionally, salesforce service agents start their day with a number of customer cases. Often sorting and prioritizing these cases is overwhelming leading to delays in response and a dip in customer satisfaction. They manage customer cases, interact across multiple channels, log activities, collaborate with team members and whatnot.

The influence of AI on service agents

Imagine the service agent’s workload being intelligently organized by AI. For Instance, the high-priority cases are automatically identified and assigned to the appropriate agent. Sifting through data, selecting relevant knowledge articles and even drafting initial responses to customer queries – this isn’t just futuristic thinking,  it’s happening now, and it’s remarkably efficient. But it doesn’t stop here!
