Joint solution upends one-size-fits-all customer service paradigm by powering predictive experiences across interaction channels

Enterprise Connect 2015, Orlando, Florida–March 16, 2015 –CafeX Communications® today announced that it has partnered with Humanify™, a leading provider of cloud-based customer experience technology, to deliver transformational customer engagement solutions characterized by highly personalized, frictionless collaboration in an Omnichannel environment. The announcement was made at Enterprise Connect, regarded as the premier conference for communications technology providers and taking place March 16-19, 2015 at the Gaylord Palms in Orlando, Forida. CafeX is located at booth #329 throughout the exhibition.

The partnership gives customers the flexibility to connect with enterprises across a broad range of self-service or live interaction channels, with the use of predictive analytics to intelligently match each customer to the most appropriate expert or resource. The solution is being jointly developed and incorporates CafeX’s award-winning Live Assist® real-time collaboration capabilities with the Humanify pure cloud customer engagement offering.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Frictionless interactions across channels: Customers can choose to engage brands over a range of preferred channels, including mobile applications, websites, chat, email, social media, self-service, in-app WebRTC video, Live Assist co-browsing and more. Plugins and downloads are avoided and users connect with the touch of a button.
  • Personalized analytics assisted matching: Data mining and machine learning techniques can be utilized to profile each customer’s attributes, value and intent in order to match the user with the most appropriate engagement option, from mobile self-service, FAQ knowledge base or other low-touch options to such high-touch options as an in-application video concierge service.  
  • Omnichannel engagement: Context is bridged between channels so that consumers can escalate seamlessly between web chat, video and other interaction methods. Context is preserved throughout the session to ensure continuity across the customer journey. 
  • Scalable, flexible deployment with investment protection: The joint solution can be hosted in the cloud as an easily implemented SaaS based offer that scales up with no upfront investment or be maintained in a hybrid cloud/on-premises environment that integrates with existing collaboration infrastructure in order to future-proof IT investments.
  • Mobile expert:  Subject matter experts can be brought into customer interactions at the right time by way of an iOS or Android mobile application, enabling enterprises to leverage their workforce’s talents, skills and experience in new ways to drive differentiated service.
  • Mobile self-service and virtual assistant: Customers can access an intelligent self-service solution that responds to natural-language questions and facilitates seamless escalation to a live expert via chat or voice.
  • Integrated user experience: Powerful software developer kits for mobile and web platforms allow enterprises to customize the customer support interface and integrate it with applications.
  • Go-to-market partners: CafeX continues to expand its market presence. In addition to partnering with Humanify, it has integrated with Desk.com to reach small-medium business and is a technology provider for a number of leading Cisco and Avaya partners. Through these partnerships, CafeX is expanding its market reach and amassing an enviable list of customers, including top financial services firms, insurance companies and businesses spanning other industry verticals.
