40% of calls can be fully automated
Automation has been a central trend in contact centers for several years now. While 65% of customer solicitations continue to take place over the phone channel, McKinsey estimates that 40% of calls can be fully automated by using conversational AI. And on this innovative market, calldesk is a European champion, with voice agents deployed in production for many major accounts, particularly in the insurance (CNP Assurances, Swiss Life, COVEA...), utilities (Enedis, Dalkia...), logistics (La Poste, Colissimo...) and transport (OUI.sncf...) sectors. In total, the voice agents handle several tens of millions of conversations each year.
A single platform to easily deploy AI-powered voice agents
SOFTEL recognize calldesk because of two strong differentiating factors; calldesk voice agents benefit from the best technical performance and the best comprehension rate, thanks to a "best-of-breed" approach, which automatically puts several technology providers in competition during the same conversation (especially at the Speech-to-text brick level). In addition, calldesk has developed a unique platform, the Studio, providing standard business users the capability to create voice agents with no development training required.
"We developed calldesk Studio to create the first easy-to-use conversational AI platform. We believe that deploying a voice agent should be a matter of days, not months. In the last few weeks, we have really seen the determination of the whole SOFTEL team. Many employees have passed and validated the calldesk Certification, which attests their ability to use the platform to create, train, and manage AI-powered voice agents. This will enable them to respond to the growing number of requests from the various countries where SOFTEL operates"
Vincent GIRE, cofounder & CEO, calldesk
