Customer Service Is Broken – It’s Time to Fix It

May 4 at 9:30 am | Room 230 – Second Floor

AWS’s Connect tools are revolutionizing the patchwork approach to customer service. If you’re stitching together multiple platforms and services (voice, web, mobile, email, etc.) to support customer interactions, your customers feel the pain of a disjointed experience – and you’re spending too much to integrate and maintain disparate best-of-breed technology solutions.

Join us to learn how to deliver seamless, human-like conversational interactions for all channels on a single platform using the latest AI/NLP tools from AWS. We will cover:

  • The challenges in customer experience, cost, and analytics that companies face as in-demand customer service channels have expanded
  • How you can create a unified, AI-enabled customer service platform that brings together experience and insights to dramatically impact your bottom line
  • Why this is a challenge you need to tackle now

*Passes are only for IT practitioners from local companies. Vendors, service providers, or consultants are not permitted to attend g2i without sponsoring the event.
