Enghouse News and Announcements

Enghouse Interactive Americas has obtained its ISO 27001 Certification for its Data Security Management Practices supporting its Hosted Contact Center for SMB Solutions.

All of EIA’s Cloud Contact Center products now meet stringent Security Management System audits and requirements designed to implement best practices for securing sensitive customer data housed in its public and private cloud Contact Center solutions.

IntelePeer and Enghouse Interactive Collaborate to Create Automated COVID-19 Vaccination Scheduling Solution for Rural Areas

This initiative involved the implementation of our Enghouse CCaaS and IntelePeer’s Atmosphere CPaaS (Communication Platform as a Service) solutions to set up an outbound, automated COVID-19 vaccination scheduling solution for rural areas. The solution was adopted by a utility company that came to the aid of a US state government agency by providing remote agents and technology to participate in this effort.

This is a shining example of what can be accomplished from timely cooperation and close collaboration between our company, a trusted partner, a utility company and State Government, in order to provide much needed pandemic relief.

Self-Service Chatbots Now Available for Enghouse Contact Center for Enterprise (CCE) version 10.0 (released last February).

Increasingly, customers are seeking out self-service channels that provide immediate 24/7 answers to straight forward inquiries and the ability to perform simple tasks – often preferring text-based transactions. Chatbots are an excellent self-service option that act as a virtual assistant for your customers.

Communications Portal Chatbot

Enghouse Interactive’s Self Service solution – Communications Portal (CP) provides task-based chatbots (“Taskbots”) that enable a multitude of use cases including appointment scheduling, providing delivery updates and service status/outage updates, that are further enhanced when combined with Outbound Notifications.

CCE version 10.0* now includes integration to CP chatbots, as well as APIs, sample scripts, documentation and professional services for partners, CCE treats the chatbot as a “virtual agent” providing reports on chat-bot interactions directly within CCE.

Chatbots can greatly improve overall customer service, reducing unexpected peak contact volumes by keeping customers informed and easily enabling self-serve on basic transactions. They can also lower the cost per contact while reducing the number of basic or repetitive tasks your contact center agents may currently have to handle.

**It is recommended that customers upgrade to CCE 10, however a full Installation is not necessary: An upgrade path through Support Center is now possible, making major release upgrades easier.

For more information on accessing CCE v10.0’s integration with self-service Chabot functionality, please contact your Customer Success Manager or email us at Hello@Enghouse.com

How One Credit Union Unlocked Invaluable Voice-of-the-Customer (VoC) Insights by Leveraging Enghouse Survey Management and AI Insights Solutions

Voice of the Customer (VoC) programs are key to improving Customer Experience (CX). They often provide a lot of data but, it’s often challenging to distill what the customer really wants without subjective interpretation and human bias. By themselves, Net Promoter Scores (NPS) and Customer Satisfaction Surveys (CSAT) only tell part of the story.

Enghouse Survey Management and AI Insights solutions are powerful tandem offerings designed to collect customer data from all touchpoints and transform them into actionable insights. Enghouse AI Insights uses Natural Language Processing (NLP), Machine Learning (ML) and text analytics to analyze your CSAT feedback and drive both semantic and emotional intelligence to uncover the “why” behind the scores, so you can take action.

AI InsightsEnghouse’s hosted AI Insights solution helped a Credit Union map their member journey across all member contacts, branches, digital channels, and assisted contact center service.

By analyzing member feedback across all touch points, the credit union can now extract specific scenarios from comments and uncover challenges related to digital banking. This will allow the digital banking team to take action to address member issues and perceptions and ultimately improve adoption of digital banking solutions. The deep insights gained allows Member Management to map strategic objectives to member feedback and better meet member expectations.

For more information on how to get the most out of your VoC initiatives, please contact your Customer Success Manager or email us at Hello@Enghouse.com
