  • Patent number: 10225407
    Abstract: A system and method for providing an interactive media response menu in an interactive media response (IMR) system is described. The system provides an end user with an IMR menu. The end user has the option to pin particular menu options throughout the IMR menu. During subsequent interactions with the IMR system, the end user can access a menu of his or her pinned menu options. The end user can select one of the pinned menu options and the IMR system will present that menu option to the end user.

  • Patent number: 10171669
    Abstract: A system and method for enhanced interaction processing in a contact center that includes routing interactions based on adaptable business objectives. A processor detects a pending interaction with a customer. The processor identifies first and second objectives of the contact center in response to detecting the pending interaction, where the first objective is identified as more important to the contact center than the second objective. The processor identifies a first agent for handling the first objective, and determines a likelihood of success of the first agent in achieving the first objective. The processor identifies a second agent for handling the second objective, and determines a likelihood of success of the second agent in achieving the second objective.

  • Patent number: 9781270
    Abstract: A system and method for case-based routing as opposed to atomic interaction routing. A processor opens a case in a customer database. The case is associated with a workflow that has steps anticipated to be executed for the case. The processor identifies first and second steps of the workflow, and further identifies an agent with skills for handling the first and second steps. The processor generates a task for handling at least the first step of the workflow, and transmits instructions to route the task to the identified agent.

  • Patent number: 9350867
    Abstract: System and method for enhanced interaction processing in a contact center that includes dynamically determining customer segmentation. A processor detects a pending interaction with a customer. The processor retrieves, in response to detecting the pending interaction, identification of a first customer segment to which the customer belongs. The first customer segment is associated with a first objective of the contact center. The processor predicts an outcome of the pending interaction, and identifies a second customer segment based on the predicted outcome. The processor re-associates the customer to a second customer segment, where the second customer segment is associated with a second objective of the contact center different from the first business objective. The processor handles the pending interaction according to the second objective instead of the first objective.
