LiveVox, a cloud-based provider of customer service and digital engagement tools, released the results of a commissioned study in conjunction with Forrester Consulting to identify the key use cases and challenges when deploying AI technology in the contact center.
“Contact Centers and AI: Sounds Like You Need Help Unlocking Full Benefits” surveyed 315 IT and operations leaders who are responsible for AI contact center technology. AI technology adoption within the contact center increased and resulted in improved customer experience, or CX; however, measurable ROI was delayed by various challenges.
The high cost of implementation, not having access to necessary customer data and a lack of skilled in-house staff are among the top three obstacles preventing contact centers from achieving ROI from AI technology investments.
“The adoption of AI within contact centers remains both the largest potential benefit and biggest challenge to delivering an exceptional agent and customer experience,” said Louis Summe, CEO and co-founder, LiveVox. “To remove the barriers around AI adoption and implementation, contact centers need to partner with technology companies that understand the application of practical AI and how the technology can be seamlessly integrated within agents’ workflows.”
