Every employee deserves an awesome companion: Meet Enlighten Copilot

What makes someone a hero? Is it the amazing powers that they possess? Or the costume they sport? It may be just the character of their person and the things that they do that make a hero. Whatever the formula, many heroes never see the spotlight and hear the cheers of the people they serve. The unsung heroes, we call them.

And there is no better example of that than customer service agents.

Being a customer service agent has always been challenging, but the digital economy has made it even more so. Agents are expected to have superhuman abilities as more business is conducted virtually, creating complex and multistep journeys that span days or weeks. Customers have typically interacted with various platforms during these journeys, and agents are expected to have full context and meet high expectations. To make matters even more complex, agents are under increasing pressure to be more efficient while operating in a hybrid work model, often far from the support or answers to questions they need in the moment.

Enter Enlighten Copilot.

While on vacation, Lisa calls the OneTravel customer service line because her travel bag was damaged during transit, and Daniel, the customer service agent, answers her call.

Copilot proactively suggests that Daniel fill out a reimbursement claim form, already pre-filled with those fields Copilot could derive from current internal systems. Daniel completes the remaining fields with help from Lisa and Copilot submits the claim for processing. Copilot then suggests a knowledge article surrounding claims that can be sent to Lisa proactively, in case she has any questions.

As Daniel hangs up the phone, he is alerted of another service request, this one coming through the OneTravel app messaging center. Jason, the customer, is reaching out because he and his family have arrived at the hotel, but much to their frustration, their reservation is not found. Daniel is quickly alerted by Copilot that Jason is exhibiting behavior that indicates strong frustration and needs to proceed with empathy to help calm him down.

Daniel asks a question, to which Jason responds with anger and contempt. Daniel’s manager, Ashley, is alerted by Copilot of this interaction that is getting progressively worse and steps in to provide real-time coaching.

Thanks to Copilot’s real-time interaction guidance, Ashley also sees that Daniel has failed to demonstrate ownership of this situation and show more empathy. She messages Daniel and asks him to show more understanding to the situation, as he evaluates the problem from his end to resolve the customer’s reservation issue.

Daniel, with this help from his manager and Copilot, confirms the location of Jason and realizes that the taxi took them to the wrong hotel. Daniel passes this information along to Jason and informs him that a change will be made to get them a reservation at this hotel.

Copilot can then automate the process of canceling the existing reservation and booking a new room for Jason and his family, asking Daniel to confirm this change without leaving his unified agent workspace.
