Cisco: 7 Things to Know About AI and Customer Care

Artificial intelligence for customer care is a hot subject. One industry analyst recently shared that, starting a few months ago, more than 75% of the firm’s customer inquiries were to discuss just one topic: Using AI to improve customer care.

What are some key insights regarding customer care and AI?

1. AI is a means to an end, not an end in itself. The top four priorities for customer care have remained consistent for many years:

  • Optimize the human element in the contact center
  • Save customer time and effort through automation and self-service tools
  • Consolidate applications to reduce IT footprint
  • Drive towards personalization of the customer experience

2. AI will be everywhere, pervasive and integrated. The nature of AI is such that you can infuse it into existing business processes. When executed well, AI should be unnoticeable to your customer, but result in more delightful and efficient experiences.
