Artificial Intelligence for CX Applications

Case Studies, Market Drivers, Market Barriers, and Best Practices for the Adoption of AI Within CX Platforms and Applications

  • Share

Artificial intelligence (AI) has become nearly ubiquitous across a wide range of industries and use cases, and within the CX discipline, AI functionality is no different; AI is increasingly being integrated or incorporated into CX platforms and applications. AI functionality is being integrated or incorporated into CX platforms and applications, with low- or no-code interfaces that allow CX, marketing, and sales professionals with little data science or computer coding experience to manipulate data and tune algorithms to serve several different functions. Many organizations have already seen the benefit of deploying AI across customer-facing functions and in back-office systems to support applications including the generation of intelligent insights, predictions, customer preferences, next-best-action recommendations, and the support of higher levels of automation.

AI heavily relies on the capture, organization, and activation of customer data, processing the data and capturing various aspects of interactions with customers. As more data is captured and processed, more complex algorithms or combinations of algorithms can be deployed, resulting in greater value and a greater return on investment (ROI).
