Customer Service Automation Platform

"DigitalGenius not only improved the response time in our contact center, with customer responses now 70% faster than they were without AI, they also expanded the capacity of my team to focus on more difficult tasks, and not repetitive tickets. We actually didn’t have to hire new team members for this entire past year. Since we implemented DigitalGenius, their team has also been extremely knowledgeable and easy to work with"

Imagine Learning

Imagine Learning is a Provo, Utah-based educational technology company founded in 2004 that serves students for whom traditional teaching is not effective. Hundreds of thousands of students benefit from Imagine Learning, an award-winning provider of educational software. By participating in an Imagine Learning program, all students, pre-K and up, are empowered to gain the skills they need to succeed – not just in school, but also in life.

The Challenge

Imagine Learning’s continuous growth has attracted an increasing number of partners, teachers and students, leading to challenges to scale effectively within the company’s customer support department. The traditional scholastic year accentuates this scaling challenge by making support demands very seasonal, negating traditional solutions such as adding staff to the support team.

The ability to find a technological solution that would help Imagine Learning manage their growing business, while also offering the highest levels of customer support to their clients, quickly became paramount.

Finally, an increasing number of “how-to” and repetitive questions coming in via new channels (such as online chat and email) presented an excellent business case for the deployment of an artificial intelligence-based customer service solution.

The Results

By implementing DigitalGenius into their Zendesk agent interface, Imagine Learning has been able to significantly reduce the average time spent per ticket when using AI.

The results after only 6 months showed that DigitalGenius AI performs with an average accuracy of 90% in field prediction, which saves agents’ time by reducing valuable time spent tagging/filling in multiple ticket fields. This in turn allows agents to spend more time resolving more complex tickets.

Cases resolved with the help of AI are now answered 70% faster than prior to the DigitalGenius implementation, a significant drop in the key contact center metric of AHT (average handling time). At the same time, customer preferences for a variety of support channels are rapidly increasing. At Imagine Learning, web chat is becoming more popular with customers, as chat is more conversational and demands faster replies from agents.

As the AI keeps learning with every interaction, further automations are planned that will continue driving efficiencies across the company’s customer service.

"DigitalGenius is a very easy tool to work with, especially given that the macros we need for the issue at hand are always suggested. The Field Predictions and their high accuracy help us facilitate the more repetitive parts of our job, and I like how a lot of the ticket fields are usually auto-populated. Overall, both of these features are usually very accurate"

Let's Put Your Customer Support on Autopilot.

Want to Learn More About DigitalGenius?

Here are a few answers to help you learn more about how to start understanding conversations, automating repetitive processes and delighting your customers.

How do I use DigitalGenius inside my customer support operation?

DigitalGenius is installed as an app into your existing customer service software (Salesforce, Zendesk and others). We will take you through a seamless onboarding experience that identifies your most expensive & repetitive tickets; connects your CRM to our AI platform; then trains and deploys your first AI model.

Once DigitalGenius is configured and the model is trained, you can onboard your agents, and begin automating inbound queries end-to-end; assist agents to handle tickets faster, therefore reducing AHT; support increasing volumes, and open up new communication channels like Facebook Messenger, Live Chat and SMS.

What processes does DigitalGenius automate?

1. DigitalGenius puts your most repetitive and expensive tickets on autopilot by connecting conversations to processes; from the inbound ticket all the way through your backend systems via our open API framework.

2. Together we map out the automation framework, custom-building exactly how you want your repetitive tickets to be resolved, and what information you’d like included in order to best reply to your customers.

3. DigitalGenius’ AI recognizes the objective of a customer’s question. When the answer rises above a certain confidence level, those processes can be automated. When it’s below, your agents will pick up those tickets, which ensures a consistent and accurate customer experience.

4. To provide the greatest ROI, we aim to automate the tickets that are the most repetitive, expensive and time-consuming for your business. These can be anything from refunds, account lookups, order cancellations, shipping status and so on. You tell us what they are - we'll do the rest.

How do I know if my company is a good fit for AI and Customer Service Automation?

Adding a layer of AI into your customer support operations is a journey, but it’s not for everyone. While DigitalGenius supports a wide variety of use cases, we want to make sure there is a good fit for your business, your agents and your customers.

If your customer service team has a large amount of inbound, text-based tickets; if you have 10 agents or more; AND if you’re experiencing repetitive queries and processes - chances are that DigitalGenius can not only reduce your costs, but will also help make customer service a competitive advantage for your business. do we get started?

Let us do the heavy lifting! We want to learn about you, the challenges you’re facing in customer service, and then determine if we’re the right choice for your business. Give us 30 minutes, and we can definitely answer the question.

If we uncover that there’s a mutual fit, we'll take you through a deeper review of our product, validate an AI match and provide you with a roadmap of what it will take to go live, plus pricing, an implementation plan and a full ROI calculation.
