What were the customer’s needs

Following the company’s desire to constantly improve and be at the forefront, in 2021 the INGO group, and specifically Phonetica , chose to introduce a new method of contact with users , which was no longer just the classic managed toll-free number. by telephone operators.

Autoguidovie wanted a more fluid, sustainable and scalable service based on user requests, which would therefore make it possible to streamline waiting times and still be able to provide adequate and quality customer support .

The optimization of functionality, costs and project has therefore made it possible to formulate a project conceived and designed according to the needs of the customer.

One of the values that distinguishes Autoguidovie is the constant tension towards innovation. It is one of the elements that has always distinguished our work in the centennial history of the company. For us, innovation is everything: it is the will and the need to continue to question ourselves.

What has been achieved

Phonetica, with the use of XCALLY and Acuto products, made it possible to redesign the Autoguidovie customer service management process, through the introduction of AI , which made it possible to optimize the service.

Initially in March 2021 an IVR was created to support the operator , to identify the type of interlocutor following a numeric digit. Thanks to the analysis of recurring requests, we then moved from April to the use of artificial intelligence on telephone, whatsapp and chat channels.

By exploiting the XCALLY platform and Acuto Knowledge management software, it was possible to build a multi-channel strategy , also thanks to the use of BOTs for chat and whatsapp.

Finally, in September it was decided to introduce voice recognition , to adapt the IVR’s response to the request in an ever more precise manner.
