“Brands are built on the great experiences that employees deliver to customers, starting with the contact center, and Avaya continues to introduce customer-led innovations for our contact center portfolio that enable better experiences to build great brands,” said Chris McGugan, senior vice president, Solutions & Technology, Avaya. “Contact centers are the cornerstone of creating Experiences that Matter for organizations and their customers, and the innovations we are introducing today, including new AI capabilities, can enhance business outcomes by helping to improve the customer journey.”
Highlighting the key role that Avaya’s customer-centric approach to innovation played in the conception and design of the new capabilities, Jim Lundy, Aragon Research CEO and Lead Analyst, said, “Avaya works with their customers to quickly solve business problems and enable use cases that are core to their business success. Through innovations like this, Avaya is releasing capabilities that infuse AI, surface real-time insights, and integrate back office functions throughout the customer journey for a better customer and employee experience.”
The new innovations now available for Avaya IX Contact Center include:
- Avaya IX Teamspace, which deepens integration with the back office by providing open, rich media chat and messaging capabilities between customers, agents and back-office staff, for easier, faster, real-time communication and collaboration. By making back-office subject matter experts easily accessible to customers and front-line agents and providing them real-time context of the customer journey, Avaya IX Teamspace can drastically increase resolution speed for customer queries and issues for improved customer experience.

Addressing inconsistencies in agent skill sets with a clear rules-based script that adapts as conversations progress, Agent Scripting provides on-screen, step-by-step guidance to better navigate customer interactions. And through integration with CRM and other back-end systems, the capability can also make valuable customer data instantly available to agents, enabling more effective service and contributing to a faster time to resolution.
“These capabilities have been developed through Avaya’s efforts to directly address specific customer needs,” said Yaser Alzubaidi, senior director of Digital Engagement Solutions, Avaya. “Originally created as specific applications aimed at solving high priority use cases, these new features are now widely available as compelling offerings in the Avaya IX Contact Center portfolio, which will bring huge benefits to a large number of contact centers.”
