Uniphore, a provider in conversational automation, announced the acquisition of Colabo, an AI-powered knowledge automation system that specializes in collecting and leveraging information from structured and unstructured documents in real time.
Vijai Shankar, VP of product and growth at Uniphore, told CMSWire that intelligent virtual assistants and human agents are empowered with the most appropriate material in every client engagement thanks to dynamic extraction of knowledge from various company systems.
Extracting Information from Data
Currently, IVAs and human agents have access to old knowledge management systems that are not linked to corporate applications, resulting in a loss of value over time due to data complexity and quality issues, according to Shankar. Businesses will be able to use AI to extract knowledge entities and graphs from structured and unstructured data using Colabo's solution integrated with Uniphore's conversational automation platform.
When IVAs and live agents have access to this information, they will be able to provide better service to customers, Shankar promised. With the addition of knowledge-based AI, Uniphore is broadening its AI capabilities beyond only speech and emotions.
“The integration would enhance our existing self-service and agent-assist solutions with a dynamic knowledge AI solution that can extract knowledge entities and graphs from different enterprise applications, enabling agents and intelligent virtual assistants to dynamically learn in real-time,” Shankar said.
