What is Contact Center Automation?
Contact center automation is a solution to a major problem many businesses face today: rising complexity. With more customers contacting companies remotely, call volumes are higher than ever—with no signs of subsiding. Those calling in are increasingly more complex requests that require a significant amount of time and effort. How can call centers meet growing customer demand and unburden their agents—without scrapping their existing CX investments? With low code contact center automation.

Why Businesses Today Need Low Code Contact Center Automation
Almost every business recognizes the importance of customer experience, but very few receive high Net Promoter Scores (NPS) from their customers. That’s because it’s nearly impossible to deliver an effortless customer experience today using yesterday’s tools and resources. No wonder customer experience leaders routinely cite lack of budget and lack of integration as their biggest impediments to delivering world-class CX. However, with low code contact center automation, businesses can easily add automatable capabilities to their legacy platforms—without costly coding and design work or investing in a start-from-scratch solution.
The Definition of Contact Center Automation
Contact center automation is the practice of applying automation and artificial intelligence to execute on the four pillars of great customer service as defined by Gartner — help contact centers connect with customers, empower employees, automate processes and drive continuous improvement through continuous intelligence. By using a low code automation platform purpose-built for contact centers, businesses can harmonize silos and elevate their customer experience significantly.

Automation Use Cases
When it comes to use cases for contact center automation, different businesses have different needs. For that reason, it’s important to first identify your business’ unique use cases—and the outcomes you hope to achieve—before you begin shopping for a contact center automation solution. That said, there are several contact center automation use cases that are common across multiple industries and business models:
Drive Self-Service Adoption
Contact center automation—particularly low code automation—can be easily applied to a number of frontend and backend processes. On the front end, when paired with an advanced conversational AI engine, contact center automation can help customers solve simple or routine requests on their own. By making self-service easier, this solution can increase self-service adoption rates and keep low-value calls out of busy call queues.
Reduce Call Times
So much of what prolongs calls—and frustrates callers and agents alike—isn’t customer interaction; it’s manual tasks. Data entry and other administrative tasks—especially those that require customers to wait or be put on hold—can slow calls to a crawl. By shifting the work from agents to automation, call centers can slash call times and holds, often dramatically.
Improve Accuracy and Reduce Errors
Call center agents are only human, and humans make errors. That isn’t the case with tools like robotic process automation (RPA). RPA can perform thousands of repetitive tasks consistently, dispassionately and without distraction. By automating activities like data entry and process execution, call centers can reduce the number of errors associated with human input and improve process accuracy system wide.
Automate After-Call Work
From generating call summaries and dispositions to executing follow-up or follow-through actions, after-call work (ACW) can eat up agents’ time and keep them off the lines. Contact center automation can make quick work of these time-consuming tasks. By automating call summaries using conversational AI-captured data during calls, businesses can reduce the amount of post-call “clean-up” work agents must perform. Contact center automation can also improve promise management by notifying agents when to fulfill follow-up/follow-through actions or by automating those actions outright.
