What are Contact center Automation Tools?

Contact center Automation Tools are tools used by organization call centers to automate specific manual processes and boost productivity.

Automation increases efficiency, reduces costs, improves accuracy, and offloads mundane tasks from call center agents. With all these benefits, it has become vital for contact centers to incorporate automation tools.

Why are Contact center Automation Tools so Important?

Call center automation tools eliminate the need for many manual practices by handling mundane and repetitive tasks such as dialing. For instance, the Voxco Dialer facilitates automated dialing or a combination of both and maximizes dialing productivity. 

By automating such processes, agents spend less time entering data and switching between applications and spend more time focusing on the conversations with their callers.

Types of Contact center Automation Tools

These are a few tools used in Contact center Automation:

Interactive Voice Response (IVR)

IVR can employ tools such as automatic speech recognition, giving respondents the opportunity to self-serve. For example, Voxco IVR facilitates self-completion surveys, which respondents can use to keep their answers private.

Statistical Machine Learning

This tool makes operations faster and more efficient by using algorithms to mine interaction data and identify patterns. 

Scheduling Automation

Automated scheduling involves managing a call center’s workforce by creating an effective and comprehensive schedule to leverage the agent’s skills and availability appropriately.

Automated Dialers

As the name suggests, this tool facilitates automatic dialing to reduce interviewer tasks and carry out dialing more quickly and efficiently.

Forecasting Automations

Automated forecasting is a tool that helps organizations better understand their data by utilizing collected data to understand trends and make predictions based on them.

Automated Agent Guidance

This tool provides agents with real-time assistance during interactions with respondents. For example, information pop-ups that display respondent’s information on the screen when they call; can help agents give more personalized responses to callers.

Workflow Automation

This tool enables agents to set up automatic tasks to handle repetitive daily processes. Workflow automation can be set up to handle a large number and variety of tasks, such as sending automated email responses or organizing and raising invoices.

Advantages/Benefits of using Contact center Automation Tools

  1. Unexpected issues or surge events can be better handled when automation tools have been employed.
  2. Allows employees to focus on what is important: Automation processes can eliminate the need for agents to conduct a lot of manual processes such as dialing. This saves time and ensures agents can focus on their interactions with customers.
  3. Changes the benchmarks for success in call centers, from operational KPIs such as handle time and calls per hour to outcome-based metrics such as customer satisfaction and net promoter score (NPS).
  4. Help identify patterns in analytics and interactions more efficiently and better than humans can. For example, advanced root cause analysis can help identify opportunities to pursue new markets or new products and services.
