Modern Customer Experience 2017, Las Vegas – April 26, 2017 - Oracle today announced a series of new innovations within the Oracle Customer Experience (CX) Cloud Suite. By combining innovative new technologies such as chatbots and artificial intelligence with enhanced mobile, video and messaging capabilities, the latest updates to Oracle CX Cloud Suite enable commerce, marketing, sales and service professionals to reduce IT complexity, provide innovative customer experiences and deliver tangible business results.
Digital technologies have fundamentally changed how customers interact with brands and now a new generation of innovations, such as artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things (IoT), are reaching the mainstream. With the latest enhancements to the Oracle CX Cloud Suite, Oracle empowers customer experience professionals to take a smarter approach to managing digital business transformation. The latest enhancements include updates to commerce, marketing, sales and service applications within the Oracle CX Cloud Suite.
Innovative chatbot capabilities enable new customer experiences by asking and intelligently answering customer questions on both text and voice-driven platforms such as Facebook Messenger and Amazon Alexa. Marketing professionals can take advantage of chatbot capabilities for their cross-channel marketing in order to enhance larger, marketer-orchestrated customer journeys. Service professionals can benefit from the conversational style of a new Virtual Assistant to provide differentiated customer self-service experiences, as well as to improve response and resolution times across chat and messaging channels. Sales professionals can leverage a new Virtual Assistant that improves sales productivity by acting as a mobile, voice-driven assistant that automates common sales tasks such as account search, transaction creation and updates.
Artificial Intelligence Innovations
New artificial intelligence based customer experience apps empower commerce, marketing, sales and service professionals to deliver smarter experiences across the customer lifecycle. The new Adaptive Intelligent Apps for CX uniquely blend first-party and third-party customer data with sophisticated decision science and machine learning, to help organisations optimise customer experiences and business outcomes.
Adaptive Intelligent Apps for CX embed within existing Oracle CX Cloud Suite commerce, marketing, sales and service applications. This ensures that business professionals are able to achieve immediate impact and value. For further details, see Adaptive Intelligent Apps for CX announcement.
Mobile, Video and Social Messaging Innovations
Enhanced mobile, video and social messaging capabilities help customer experience professionals transform existing business processes to meet the increasing expectations of empowered customers. New video and social messaging capabilities for service professionals power next-generation customer service strategies by enabling customer service agents to interact with customers across WeChat, Facebook Messenger and video channels. New mobile capabilities for sales professionals maximise productivity for sales reps, managers and partners with a voice-activated, task-based and role-based user experience. In addition, sales professionals now have the flexibility to use Windows Surface tablets, as well as iOS and Android devices, and take advantage of full offline capabilities to create and edit sales data without a cellular or Wi-Fi connection.
