Paris, San Francisco, May 22, 2013 – Prosodie-Capgemini has today announced the SmartCall mobile customer service application to all customers currently using Odigo Voice solutions from Prosodie-Capgemini. Built on the Salesforce Platform, the world's leading cloud platform for social and mobile business apps, SmartCall enriches Interactive Voice Response (IVR) applications by extending access to customer care agents from any smart device, via voice, chat and other social media, directly into the contact center. This new mobile application further extends the salesforce.com and Capgemini alliance, which already includes solutions for Financial Services and Retail industries.
Unlike traditional Interactive Voice Response (IVR) systems, SmartCall is a ground-breaking mobile application that enables customers to connect with agents in a new, easy and innovative way. This new visual IVR solution allows customers to see the wait time to speak to an agent, join the hold queue without waiting on the phone, chat with agents, or to have the system call them when the next agent is available. SmartCall enhances Prosodie–Capgemini's established IP solution, Odigo, that manages multi-channel customer interactions (voice, mail and web) completely in the cloud. SmartCall along with Odigo, allows businesses to optimize the number of agents responding to customers with a high level of flexibility and efficiency for increased customer satisfaction.
Guillaume Gozlan, CMO and CTO of Meilleurtaux.com said: “We are currently using both solutions -Salesforce and Prosodie-Capgemini - and we have seen how they perfectly match together on a daily basis. We are also very excited to see the richness of the future components like SmartCall that will be available very soon. We are sure that this approach will provide a valuable and innovative experience for our customers and therefore a better chance to increase their satisfaction ”
Nicolas Aidoud, CEO of Prosodie-Capgemini said: “This announcement opens up a new innovative roadmap for our solutions that integrate with Salesforce, including features such as Smart Call, natural language, voice payments and speech analytics: all components of the ODIGO solution. We look forward to continuing to nurture our relationship with salesforce.com and the solutions we deliver to customers as part of our growing global footprint.”
