Bluewolf taps Einstein & Watson to bring AI to telecoms

Includes IBM Watson-powered Chatbot which will provide information on data usage, voice consumption, payment history and deliver personalised offers/targeted promotions.

By Ellie Burns

Bluewolf is set to make AI a reality for the telecoms industry with a new Salesforce Fullforce Solution, dubbed Bluewolf AI Now for Telecommunications.

Bluewolf has brought together IBM Watson APIs, Vlocity and Salesforce Einstein to help CSPs connect customer experience to value through unified billing, commerce, phone activation, sales and communications across all channels.

The first Salesforce Fullforce-certified solution to include both Watson and Einstein, Bluewolf AI Now offers a range of capabilities which leverages IBM’s and Einstein’s AI power.

Once such capability is augmented customer intelligence which taps Watson Conversation and Personality Insights technologies to enhance customer engagement across multiple channels, including web, chat, mobile and social.

Customers who engage online via chat will be able to interact with a chatbot designed to provide information on their current services, such as data usage, voice consumption, payment history; and deliver personalized offers and targeted promotions. When needed, Watson will equip agents with insights that can help them better interact with each customer, increasing satisfaction, helping reduce call resolution and order processing times, and boosting their cross-sell and upsell opportunities.bluewolf

With Einstein and Vlocity, Bluewolf are offering applications which are built natively and additively on the Salesforce platform. Vlocity Communications will deliver Enterprise Product Catalog, CPQ, Contract Management, Order Management, and Retail Clienteling applications and pre-built business processes, all designed to help CSPs deliver a differentiated customer experience and operate with increased business agility.

Sales Cloud Einstein Lead Scoring and Opportunity Insights will prioritise the highest value leads, giving CSPs the intelligence to determine which customers to call first and next. Service Cloud Einstein Supervisor Insights will look to empower call centre agents with key insight to improve customer satisfaction, identifying the most timely cases to focus on based on customer profile, sentiment, or case escalation.
