2022 research commissioned by Odigo sees overwhelming support for the claim that AI investments improve the customer experience. The vast majority of respondents also stress that AI is a long-term investment and takes time to properly integrate and deliver maximum ROI.
The collective voice of 1035 business executives couldn’t be any clearer: AI for Customer Experience is here to stay and with good reason. AI is more than just an IT tool that delivers efficient services. AI solutions are a growth accelerator.
Odigo, a leading provider of Contact Centre as a Service (CCaaS) solutions, today announced the findings of its 3rd annual AI for Customer Experience report. Davies Hickman, a reputable market research agency from the UK, conducted detailed research across market verticals and geographies. The results are key trends and conclusions on the pace of adoption of AI solutions in customer-facing environments. As a champion of the benefits of AI for Customer Experience (CX), Odigo has dedicated itself to infusing its CCaaS solutions with AI functionalities. That makes Odigo doubly keen to keep its finger on the pulse of what businesses right across the board have to say.

For each of these, a targeted eBook brings together findings from business leaders. Some of the highlights include:
A lot of hype about AI in all facets of business and life means that not all the information in circulation is grounded in reality. This is not the case, however, with AI in the contact centre, as ebook 1 reveals. Businesses are on the offense with almost 3 out of 4 businesses responding that they have already made AI investments. What is striking is that 89% of these investors report the deployment to be a success, sometimes in multiple areas. On top of that, 6 out 10 of the remaining businesses that haven’t invested yet intend to do so over the next 2 years.
The root cause of this is that AI-powered solutions have an impact that is not limited to their immediate application. For example, the application of conversational bots is not only limited to extracting information from a conversation but to interpreting it and providing a convenient self-service option in the process. Conversational AI does all that and also optimises the contact centre with advanced call qualification (detection of intent) before routing. What’s more, it offers contextualised responses directly to the agent. The principle of AI for CX, when intelligently applied, enriches the experience of both the customer and the agent. And it is that mutual benefit, or symmetry of attention, which makes it a fundamental lever of growth for your company.
