Evergent Launches Captivate Product Suite for Subscriber Churn Management

Globenewswire | April 17, 2023

Evergent, the customer management and monetization leader for digital subscription businesses, today announced the launch of its new Evergent Captivate Product Suite, a collection of tools purpose-built for subscriber churn management. Backed by artificial intelligence, the new product suite helps Evergent’s global customer base of digital media, entertainment, and telecommunications companies to analyze, predict and prevent churn among their audiences. Subscription businesses today must be able to respond to both forms of customer loss: voluntary, or active, churn in which the customer consciously cancels the service and involuntary, or passive, churn, in which the system cancels the service when unable to collect payment. According to recent data from the global research firm, PYMNTS, about 24% of the recurring payments fail due to credit card failures and of that, about 88% of payments are recoverable by retrying the payments at the right time. The Evergent Captivate Product Suite is designed to address both forms of churn. The new offering from Evergent provides companies with precise, easy-to-use solutions to improve customer retention and increase the overall customer lifetime value (LTV). The Evergent Captivate Product Suite for subscriber churn management includes the following tools: Captivate Flow: An end-to-end analytical tool designed to follow customer behavior, deter cancellations, and reduce voluntary churn Captivate Smart: An AI-based solution to detect and resolve potential payment failures before they occur, reducing failures by up to 30% Captivate Proact: Analytical AI tool to predict churn and lead users to proactive solutions Captivate Essential: A collection of essential subscriber management functions, ranging from loyalty points to segmented offers to pause & resume functions “The economic landscape for global consumers has changed forever, and subscriptions now command a substantial part of the monthly budget,” said Vijay Sajja, founder and CEO of Evergent. “Companies providing subscription services are competing for wallet share, and customer retention is key for long-term survival. Captivate allows these businesses to better understand their customers, helping to predict potential churn and design the right programs and approaches to prevent it.” ABOUT EVERGENT Based in Sunnyvale, CA, Evergent delivers customer relationship management tools for global digital media, entertainment and telecommunications providers.

Vonage Announces AI Acceleration Suite to Simplify and Democratize Intelligent App Development

Prnewswire | March 28, 2023

Vonage, a global leader in cloud communications helping businesses accelerate their digital transformation, has launched the Vonage AI Acceleration Suite, a portfolio of AI-capable, low-code/no-code programmable components that speed and simplify the development of applications that deliver smarter solutions to drive business productivity and better experiences and engagements. Integrating Vonage Communications APIs for voice, video, SMS and messaging, the AI Acceleration Suite allows businesses and developers to rapidly deploy rich, omnichannel customer journeys that use the power of AI and customer data to incorporate intelligence and automation into their customer experience applications. The need for new, intelligent applications is accelerating as organizations look to enhance digital engagement for every stakeholder (customer, agent, and employee) to address each unique use case. This, coupled with an overwhelming demand for developers in an increasingly competitive landscape, has resulted in the rise of a new community of non-developers or "citizen developers," who are looking to create applications easily and quickly - or turbo charge existing applications with real-time communications and seamless digital experiences. "To meet evolving customer needs - and demand - for better ways to connect across channels of choice, enterprises today are looking for solutions that speed and simplify the development of intelligent, AI-powered customer experience applications," said Savinay Berry, EVP, Product & Engineering for Vonage. "Vonage AI Acceleration Suite enables businesses to create better outcomes and enhance productivity with AI processing and programmable solutions that are essential for developers and non-developers alike to meet this growing demand for simpler and faster methods of application development to create a better overall customer journey." The Vonage AI Acceleration Suite includes: AI Studio: Originally launched in September 2022, the award-winning AI Studio is a low-code/no-code solution that enables smart customer conversations in multiple languages, incorporating natural-language understanding (NLU) and machine learning (ML) capabilities using AI. Recent updates to AI Studio have expanded the scale of conversation building, with the ability to integrate with any web chat UI and to send and receive media images, video, files and more. Additional updates include a native Salesforce integration providing management of Salesforce records, while facilitating a 360-degree view of customers' history and preferences, an Audience API & UI where AI Studio integrates with additional CRM platforms in a frictionless manner, as well as live agent routing. Proactive Connect: Announced in March 2023, Vonage Proactive Connect enables two-way, one-to-one, personalized omnichannel conversations at scale. With a low-code dashboard interface, this highly-scalable API for bulk two-way communications across SMS, MMS, social messaging and voice channels, enables personalized customer engagement supported by auto-responses, or connected through AI Studio conversation flows, or connection to live contact center agents, creating better engagement for enhanced customer journeys. Meetings API: Also announced in March 2023, Vonage Meetings API delivers global, customizable video conferencing capabilities - including screen share, whiteboarding, chat, reactions, recording and more - in a low-code/no-code solution - enhancing interactions by integrating visual engagement directly into the user experience and workflows without the need for developer expertise. "Consumers today are looking for seamless, simple and sensational communications experiences within their preferred applications and channels, but creating these from the ground up is costly, time-consuming and challenging – especially for businesses that don't have large teams of developers and AI experts to rely on," said Jim Lundy, Founder and CEO, Aragon Research. "With the capabilities enabled by the AI Acceleration Suite of products across omnichannel messaging, video conferencing, and more, Vonage is up for the challenge." Lead management software company Interaktiv had a rapidly growing call center that required the use of bots and AI-powered virtual assistants to enable agents to make calls, and send personalized email and text messages across their social messaging application in real time. With the Vonage AI Acceleration Suite, Interaktiv leveraged the low-code/no-code components needed to provide a user-friendly interface through which anyone on their team can create useful apps and bots to help drive customer engagement. "At Interaktiv, low-code/no-code solutions like Vonage AI Studio has enabled us to create bots to manage interactions with our customers on social messaging platforms, using a simple visual development approach instead of more complex route that can require thousands of lines of code," said Ernesto Orozco, CEO at Interaktiv. "With Vonage AI Acceleration Suite, onboarding of AI Studio was simple - my team did not need a lot of training time and could follow the documentation available online to experiment and scale up the conversation flow design, decreasing time to market and reducing costs." Vonage AI Acceleration Suite solutions can be used together, or flexibly in different combinations, or individually according to application need. In addition, developers extend use cases and build specialized applications on top of AI Acceleration Suite solutions with open access to Vonage communications APIs for voice, video, SMS and messaging.
