Integrating Bots & Brains:

In addition, HGS also received a Gold award for Best Use of Self-Service Technology for the second consecutive year with its integration of bots and brains. HGS has been helping major clients transform their traditional call center approach to a Unified CX Strategy® with DigiCX® solutions that lead with self-service.

HGS's self-service solutions are designed to empower consumers to Get the Right Answer Fast. The solution has built-in analytics that identify the top call drivers, enabling HGS to create how-to videos and improve the FAQs to better support customer inquiries. 

"Our self-service solution is based on a Smart Channel Selector algorithm, which is intelligent in offering the right type of channel based on customer issue type," said Parikshit Kalra, SVP, Solutions and Capabilities. "This increases the probability of first contact resolution and customers do not have to keep shuffling between different channels. Based on this strategy, we are delivering an average 20 percent call volume deflection and 97 percent resolution rate. This is a key differentiator for us to compete in the industry."
