Telefónica hired Amelia for Customer Care to improve voice-based customer experiences.
Telefónica wanted to replace its outdated automated voice systems in its contact centers in order to improve resolution times and customer satisfaction.
Telefónica hired Amelia to give customers a more natural interface for communicating with the business.
Amelia handles 4.5 million calls per month. She accurately recognizes customer intent on more than 90% of calls, and customer satisfaction has increased.
When Amelia puts her skills to work on the front lines of customer service operations, she can take on high-volume repeatable tasks, allowing contact center agents to deliver more personalized services.
Bring AI Into Customer Service
Contact centers and digital customer services are experiencing massive spikes in volumes, and they're struggling to keep up.
When businesses deploy a conversational AI agent like Amelia, more than two-thirds realize measurable benefits, including reduced wait times and a 20% increase in first-call resolution.
Answer Common Questions
Amelia is trained to understand commonly asked questions in call centers, such as return policies, opening hours, delivery status, shipping issues and other frequently asked questions. She is pre-trained to answer various questions, but she’s also able to learn new tasks, so her skills and knowledge grow over time.
Anything customers need to know that can be found on an FAQ page, or within an account profile, can be repeated or explained by Amelia during a service call. By automating these common customer interactions, businesses free human labor to respond to unique and valuable requests. They also dramatically improve UX and UI design.
Instead of handling hundreds of FAQ interactions each day, human agents can address unique problems pertaining to high-value interactions. No more answering questions about shipping rates, or business hours — human agents can sell products and help customers upgrade to better services.
Perform Customer Care Tasks
Amelia for Customer Care is trained to follow procedures with precision. She will never deviate from the exact processes established for her. She delivers personalized greetings to customers, learns and employs existing enterprise customer service workflows, and integrates with customer backend systems, such as Genesys and Salesforce. She processes data and makes decisions based on the strict parameters for which she’s been trained. By hiring Amelia for Customer Care, businesses guarantee that customer information and interactions are stored in a system that makes this data easy to recall for future tasks.
She is pre-trained to triage incoming customer requests and act as an inbound information-gathering input point. She will learn specifics for different customer scenarios through dialogue and observation, and appropriately route calls to agents when required for rapid resolutions. These scenarios include common interactions, such as returns and exchanges, product and service requests, service activation, and more.
Amelia helps relieve the burden placed on burned out call center representatives. She’s able to take on the simple and repetitive tasks that human workers deal with most of the day while also freeing human customer service representatives to do fewer, but more complex tasks.
Resolve Customer Issues
Call center employees have limited bandwidth, especially during high-volume periods. The bigger the backlog of calls, the more likely a customer will be placed on hold. When this happens too often (and for too long), it can directly translate into customer frustration and a poor UX.
Amelia for Customer Care handles sensitive customer inquiries such as bill payments, charge disputes, service cancellations, order statuses, and more. She uses historical data to see how past issues were resolved, and to see if there are any clues hidden in previous interactions to help determine what can be done so that the issue never happens again.
Seventy-two percent of customers expect customer service representatives to know their contact information and service history without being asked, according to CFI Group. In a separate study, 86% of consumers say it’s absolutely critical or very important for customer service agents to know their service history so they don’t have to spend time explaining it to them, according to Salesforce.
Amelia for Customer Care understands sentiment and uses her knowledge to deliver appropriate responses, ensuring a positive UX, even during sensitive interactions. Amelia is also trained to immediately recognize and escalate calls that she’s not trained to handle.
If a caller needs help with something she’s not authorized by law, or programmed to resolve, Amelia will ask a human colleague for help. As the human colleague resolves the issue, Amelia listens in the background and tries to find ways that she might be able to resolve the issue on her own for similar future calls. If she’s not legally allowed to handle these calls she waits for the human agent to ask her specific questions that may make it easier for him or her to manually resolve the issue.
46% of U.S. adults use digital voice assistants to interact with smartphones and other devices, according to Pew Research Center.
Amelia has 90% intent recognition on customer service inquiries for a major telecom provider.
73% of global consumers say they are open to businesses using AI if it makes life easier.
38% of people say AI improves customer service.

Who is Amelia? She is a Digital Employee who works with humans to locate information and perform complex tasks with automation and conversational AI. She uses state-of-the-art Natural Language Processing to work in collaboration with humans. However, there's more to Amelia than innovative technology; she speaks, interacts and understands the way humans do. She’s not confused by catchphrases, regional accents or speech patterns. All of this adds up to more human Customer Care — with experiences that customers will vastly prefer over 800-numbers, generic service emails, and simple chatbots that can't provide anywhere near the same level of service.
