Together, Avaya and Google Cloud are providing customers with increased flexibility, efficiency and scalability in deploying powerful and simple communication and collaboration solutions.
Key features available now through the integration of Avaya OneCloud CCaaS and Google Cloud CCAI include:
Virtual Agents – Human-like automated bots which seamlessly interact with customers, offloading the live agents’ utilidation until the optimal time and then transferring all context gathered to the agent. Avaya captures the intent, actions and ultimate disposition of each interaction in real-time, to decide the best path in future customer engagement. Virtual agent capabilities are enabled through integration of Google CCAI with Avaya Experience Portal. While virtual bots are ubiquitous, they lack essential capabilities for effectively interacting with customers. Avaya integrated with Google CCAI has evolved virtual bots into virtual agents, with more human-like, intelligent responsiveness.
Agent Assist – Avaya AI algorithms can be applied to Google CCAI to determine the next best action by the agent, delivering the right information and enhancing the customer experience – while increasing agent satisfaction and contact centre efficiency.

Through this valuable insight, recommended responses and best actions can be uniquely tailored to drive desired outcomes.
