“Route 101’s mission is driven by disruptive opportunities that have the power to move the needle in the customer service sector – helping businesses to reduce costs, boost revenue, and manage growth. In Omilia we found a partner who has both the experience and the most innovative technology the industry can offer. At a time when customer self-serve option is preferred and also a fraction of the cost of the alternative, the case for choosing automated self-serve solution is rock solid. For us, this partnership with Omilia is game-changing,” said Russell Attwood, Route 101 Founder.

“This partnership reflects our desire to work with companies that share our vision for delivering experiences that matter. We are always looking for ways to make the customer service experience faster and smarter, and with Route 101, we have a unique opportunity to revolutionise how businesses in the U.K. interact with their customers. Bringing Route 101’s capabilities together with our Conversational AI solution will advance the contact centre industry and improve customer interactions for generations to come,” said Dimitris Vassos, CEO at Omilia.

Confidence in providing good customer service is at an all-time low, exacerbated by high call volumes during the COVID-19 pandemic. Harris Interactive, a market research firm in the U.K., recently found that 89% of consumers have switched to doing business with a competitor following a poor customer experience. McKinsey & Company finds that migrating customers to digital channels can successfully boost savings and satisfaction, and 84% of customers say they prefer a company that gets them easy answers via self-service as opposed to on the phone according to a 2020 NICE inContact CX Transformation Benchmark Study.

Omilia’s state-of-the-art technology uses AI to provide a seamless human-like conversational experience across different communication channels with over 95% semantic accuracy, which can be implemented across different sectors. Omilia’s combination of unique Natural Language Understanding capabilities, state-of-the-art speech recognition engine and omnichannel dialogue management platform has the power to transform customer experience and instil consumer confidence in a business.

One of the main challenges for businesses is to scale their customer service operations and meet the high volume of customer service requests, without significantly increasing operational costs. Through this partnership, businesses in the U.K. can now automate between 20% and 40% of their customer interactions, lowering their costs and achieving efficiencies at scale, all without sacrificing the quality of customer interactions.
