Omnichannel is no longer a buzzword but a reality

Customers turn to brands that offer personalized experiences on the channels they love to use. Although you might already be present on some of your customers’ favorite channels – are you using them to their full advantage? Unleash the conversational potential of WhatsApp, RCS, Voice, Video, and Email with new features and capabilities.

WhatsApp

RCS

  • Looking to introduce rich, engaging customer communication in new markets? You can now use RCS in Germany and Poland.

Voice

  • Automate voice call processes with speech recognition and record the call-in text form for reporting purposes.
  • Intent recognition eliminates the need for callers to select a number option from a menu and enables them to state the reason for their call. Our AI engine will recognize their intent and connect them with the right agent.
  • Forward ongoing calls from your IVR to a static public IP address to play background music for your callers as they wait to be transferred to an agent – and connect your IVR to our digital contact center, Conversations, to chat with customers.

Video

  • Upgrade your video calls with on-demand downloads, video conferencing with up to 10 participants, and screen share options.
  • Take it one step further with smart video distribution and network events through your mobile app – and connect your web and in-app calls via API.
  • You can also track and manage video and voice calls with combined reporting.

Email

  • Design or upload custom landing pages for unsubscribers with the new opt-out landing page feature.
  • Our new user-friendly editor helps you develop branded landing pages that enable your customers to opt out of future emails and gives insight into the effectiveness of your email content.

Smarter communication

AI and security are at the top of the list for organizations looking to stay top of mind. That’s why we’ve integrated both into our solutions to ensure your communication is smart, secure, and timely.

Mobile Identity

  • Silent Mobile Verification: Implement a more secure, faster authentication method for mobile phones that takes up to five seconds and doesn’t require PINs or passwords.
  • SMS Failover: Minimize the number of failed logins by ensuring customers receive your authentication alerts on a secure channel.

IoT Connectivity Management

  • Offline notifications: Combat revenue loss with real-time notifications when we detect a device is offline prompting you to manually reset it on the field.
  • Network activity tracking: Gain a full view of when your IoT devices are fully connected, the duration of data sessions, and which mobile network the device was connected to during that period.
