As consumer demands (and expectations) for intelligent conversational interactions increase, brands must find more efficient and effective ways to ensure those high-quality experiences.

With the proliferation of open source technologies, cloud and the API economy, organizations today have more access, control and choice in AI, speech, and advanced conversational technology than ever before—but it’s more than just APIs of course.  

APIs are simply a way to access incredibly powerful tech – it’s what you do with that tech that counts.  Applying conversational AI to real business problems is about more than just understanding words. It demands a deep understanding of industry context, a focus on concrete outcomes and a thorough grasp of the art and science of conversational design. 

Register for this live webinar to learn:

  • What open source technologies, cloud and the API economy can do for customer care leaders
  • How leading brands are leveraging DIY capabilities to improve flexibility, speed time to market, and reduce development costs  
  • Strategies for designing consistent, conversational user interfaces across IVR, virtual assistants/chatbots and IoT devices
  • Key considerations for making the choice to “DIY” or collaborate with design experts (hint: it doesn’t have to be an either/or) 
  • Real world examples of leading brands using conversational AI to differentiate their experience, reduce customer effort and frustration, and stand out in crowded markets
