New End-to-End AI Capabilities Power Smarter Engagement
CXone
end-to-end AI capabilities enable organizations of all sizes to predict
and act on AI-powered insights to delight customers, engage employees,
and significantly improve agent productivity.

New CXone AI capabilities that span the end-to-end customer and agent
experience include:

  • NICE inContact Advanced Chat for CXone: Makes introducing
    automation and AI into the contact center environment faster and
    easier, while streamlining service delivery. New integrated chatbot
    enables organizations to configure and deploy bots to perform common
    tasks, while offering easy options to transparently elevate to an
    agent-assisted chat as needed. Customers can add AI services such as
    Natural Language Understanding Classification and Sentiment Analysis,
    Natural Language Processing Entity Identification, Language
    Recognition, Sentence Similarity and more. This new embedded chatbot
    is in addition to the more than 20 AI-powered voice and chatbot
    partner integrations that easily integrate with CXone and are
    available on the CXexchange
    marketplace
    .
  • NICE Nexidia Predictive Behavior Routing (PBR) for CXone:
    Connects customers with the best available agent for his or her
    personality, communication preferences and behavioral characteristics,
    powering more productive and positive conversations and call outcomes,
    and better customer and agent experiences. PBR leads to improved
    business results using advanced algorithms that adapt the best agent
    match depending on the top business goal identified by contact center
    leaders, such as Average Handle Time, Customer Effort Time, Customer
    Satisfaction, Net Promoter Score®, First Contact Resolution, Sales
    Effectiveness, and Customer Retention.
  • AI-powered WFM Forecasting: Takes the guesswork out of
    workforce management forecasting with AI-powered selection of best
    algorithms for each forecasting scenario. Saves time with a “best
    pick” option that takes into account more than 45 patented algorithms,
    seasonality patterns and trends to smooth out anomalies in scheduling.
  • AI-driven Interaction Analytics and Insights: Drives smarter
    decisions, to improve customer satisfaction, with AI-driven
    interaction analytics that identify sources of customer frustration
    and unresolved issues. Patent-pending Frustration Detection goes
    beyond detecting negative sentiment and identifies what issues and
    agents contribute to customer frustration, helping businesses focus on
    and take corrective action in areas that negatively impact customer
    satisfaction. Unresolved Issue Detection identifies contact types and
    agents that contribute to multiple interactions.

New Depth and Breadth of CRM Integrations Enhance Personalized
Customer Experiences

The CXone Spring 2019 release includes
additional depth and breadth of pre-built CRM integrations to help
deliver personalized and contextual customer experiences. Deeper
Salesforce integration offers Salesforce customers additional options
and other new and enhanced CRM integrations coming soon will deliver a
breadth of options for large and small organizations globally.

  • CXone Routing for Salesforce Digital Channels and New Packages for
    Salesforce:
    adds a global carrier-grade voice channel to
    Salesforce digital customer interaction channels, in addition to an
    intelligent routing engine. Adding CXone intelligent routing for
    digital channels can improve the customer experience through
    skills-based routing that combines agent proficiency with customer
    attributes from Salesforce to find the best customer service agent for
    each interaction – allowing faster resolution of customer requests,
    fewer transfers between agents, and options to provide higher levels
    of service to premium customers. Agents continue to handle digital
    channels from within their familiar Salesforce interface, and now with
    CXone agents will benefit by servicing customer requests they have the
    skills and proficiency to quickly and successfully resolve.

In addition, new CXone
Packages for Salesforce
extend the Salesforce Lightning Service
Console with integrated workforce management, quality management,
interaction analytics, and customer feedback applications.

  • New and Enhanced Pre-built CRM Integrations: will deliver a
    breadth of pre-built options for integrating popular CRM applications
    with CXone to deliver a personalized customer experience and improve
    agent productivity. Each CRM integration will provide a unified
    desktop option between CXone real-time interaction handling and
    customer profile and case management from the CRM, as well as
    bi-directional data synchronization. New and enhanced integrations
    include: Oracle Service Cloud, Microsoft Dynamics, ServiceNow,
    Zendesk, SugarCRM, NetSuite, SAP, and BullHorn.
