Enhancing eCommerce Contact Center Efficiency with Generative AI

The Challenge: Streamlining Contact Center Operations

A forefront leader in the eCommerce space was grappling with inefficiencies in its Contact Center performance. The agents were burdened with the task of spending over three minutes per customer contact for documentation—a process that resulted in inconsistent, incomplete, and largely disregarded notes. This not only hampered operational efficiency but also detracted from the agents’ ability to focus on customer service excellence.

The Solution: Implementing Generative AI for Real-time Summarization

Recognizing the critical need to optimize the documentation process, the company sought the expertise of Lighthouse3, a pioneer in AI-driven solutions. Our previous successful collaborations made us a trusted partner in their quest for innovation.

Lighthouse3, leveraging its expertise in Generative AI, introduced a groundbreaking summarization capability tailored for the eCommerce leader’s Contact Center. This advanced GenAI technology was adept at not only summarizing conversations in real-time but also classifying the reasons for calls and generating follow-up action items on the fly.

The Impact: Revolutionized Contact Center Dynamics

The deployment of Generative AI summarization technology marked a significant turning point for the eCommerce leader:

Increased Efficiency: Agents were relieved from the time-consuming task of manual documentation, eliminating the need for the additional 3+ minutes previously spent on typing notes. This optimization allowed them to handle customer interactions more efficiently.

Enhanced Agent Satisfaction: The reduction in administrative burdens led to a remarkable 40 basis point increase in agent satisfaction. With less stress and fatigue, agents could now concentrate more on solving customer issues, leading to a more fulfilling work environment.

Improved Customer Satisfaction: The focus on customer interaction and resolution, facilitated by the new technology, resulted in a notable improvement in CSAT scores by 150 basis points. This uplift in customer satisfaction underscores the direct impact of operational efficiencies on the overall customer experience.
