  6. 6. 6 / 10 Use Cases for Conversational AI User Experience Renovation Using AI by BoodsKapper Situation: We have all experienced long wait times for customer service and know that it leads to frustrated and even angry customers. Chat based solutions were supposed to help but have resulted in multitasking customers who leave agents having to wait. Challenges: Normal chat programs engender poor service as they often require agents to carry on five or more conversations simultaneously. Meanwhile, manual message support is expensive to manage as agents need to manually fetch the desired information. BoodsKapper desired to develop an automated, text-based system that would use advanced AI algorithms to predict user’s intent and react accordingly. Solution: By building on the SAP Cloud Platform, BoodsKapper was able to provide its customers with an interactive, multi-channel (SMA, Facebook, Messenger, etc.) customer service experience driven by SAP Conversational AI. It has the ability to hold conversations at near human level and technical service that allows users to query the system regarding costs, plan type, comparisons and more. The results that BoodsKapper customers are enjoying include a 10X reduction in issue resolution time and a 75% cost reduction in call center operations. © 2019 SAP SE or an SAP affiliate company.

  7. 7. 7 / 10 Skybuffer Drives Efficiencies with Chatbots That Really Work Situation: Artificial Intelligence isn’t very valuable if it’s ignorant! For many people their experience with talking to their computer or phone has been filled with disappointment. We ask our phone to call “Cesar Rodrigues” and it replies,“Did you mean Steve Robinson?” If organizations are going to find value in this technology, it must be able to understand the customer in their normal speaking voice and pattern. Challenges: Organizations don’t always adopt new technologies such as chatbots quickly. Perhaps it’s the desire to make sure they are working perfectly and a desire to avoid the risk of a technology failure. Or perhaps their IT department doesn’t have the expertise yet to get the latest technology up and running. These are valid concerns that could cause the enterprise to wait on implementing conversational AI. Solution: Skybuffer managed to overcome these challenges with an SAP connected chatbot that really works, talks and makes sense. Moreover, it is rich in functionality with hundreds of SAP specific competences, knowledgeable across dozens of SAP lines of business, voice-enabled and can perform in any language a business user speaks without additional language specific AI model training. It is all made possible thanks to a unique combination of SAP Cloud technologies of Conversational Experience, Language Experience and Machine Learning domains. The Skybuffer AI Content for SAP ERP (SAP S4HANA) is offered as a single package including all future upgrades and development. In addition, the solution provides the customers with their chatbot trouble-free integration into multiple channels and enables further tuning of the chatbot AI skills via a customized management portal. © 2019 SAP SE or an SAP affiliate company.
