Attensity introduces Attensity Respond Version 5.0, Release Creates A Blended Queue that Includes Social, Email, SMS, Letters, and More
Attensity Respond is a self-learning response management application that delivers multi-channel communications management. It is designed to enable contact center agents to efficiently provide responses to customer inquiries, no matter the channel they make the inquiry through. With Attensity’s semantic technologies as the backbone, Attensity Respond is able to accurately read every message and then automatically classify and route those messages to the right agent. Messages are routed along with suggested responses, providing the agent with the best answer so they are able to respond quickly with the right content. With Attensity Respond, large numbers of incoming messages can be processed more efficiently and, whenever possible, the application provides automatic responses tailored to the specific situation.
“The buzz on social media has not escaped the Contact Center” said Esteban Kolsky of thinkJar, “they are desperate to integrate social media and optimize their processes to better serve the social customer, and are looking for technology to help them get there.” He later added “Just about every budget for Contact Center in 2011 contains at least one line item for Social Media integration.”
New and improved features of Version 5.0:
• Social media support
Attensity Respond 5.0 now supports response management through the social network Twitter; communications using Twitter are integrated into its cross-channel queue. Customer tweets can be analyzed and categorized, and possible responses can be suggested and sent to the customer. Customers (and their social media alias names) are integrated into the customer management system. A ticket is created for each case, including its relevant history. This enables companies and organizations to track all customer interactions.
• Improved SMS support
Version 5.0 of Attensity Respond offers improved processing of SMS messages through using an SMS gateway that makes SMS processing faster
With the new version, the Attensity Respond application can be adapted to the needs of every user, regardless of disabilities or limitations. New accessibility features include:
o A choice of four specifically adapted color schemes
o Adjustable scaling of the displayed font size
o Complete operability using the keyboard
“With the release of Attensity Respond 5.0, social media have truly become part of the contact center environment. Using this software, service staff can process inquiries and comments communicated through any channel at any time,” says Catherine van Zuylen, Attensity Group Vice President of Product Management.
