Zayo Launches API Developer Portal to Accelerate Enterprise Digital Transformation

Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. | August 18, 2022

Zayo Group Holdings, Inc., a leading global communications infrastructure platform, today announced the launch of its Application Programming Interface (API) Developer Portal, providing customers with a single online platform to explore, on-board and test live environments with existing API offerings, and stay informed about upcoming developments. One of the biggest challenges enterprises face when working with multiple vendors is siloed information and data. With Zayo’s API Developer Portal, customers now have a centralized, well-organized, easily navigable repository of information about automating business processes with Zayo. “We want to empower our customers through every step of their digital transformation journey, and APIs are where that journey comes to life in the form of automation at our customers' fingertips. “With our developer portal, customers now have a live environment where they can easily find the information they need to understand, design and build the best software integration strategy to make an impact and drive business results.” Leidy Perez, vice president of product, strategic software at Zayo Currently, Zayo receives hundreds of thousands API calls a month originating from 100+ customers. These requests come through key partners such as Connectbase, ACS Solutions, GeoTel, Upstack, NDA Corp, Masterstream and LMX as well as direct integrations. Benefits of Zayo’s existing API offerings include: Network Discovery: Zayo’s Building Validation, Location, and Cloud Service Provider APIs enable customers to analyze how Zayo’s network availability powers their business footprint. Quote and Order: Customers can grow their business capabilities by leveraging Zayo products in its Product Catalog API, generating quotes with the Quote API, and automating the ordering process through the Order API. Service Management: Customers are able to retrieve critical service information, get support for issues, and keep track of planned outages with the Service Inventory, Ticketing, Ticket Catalog and Maintenance Cases APIs. In addition to the API developer portal, Zayo has started the roll out of MEF API “Lifecycle Service Orchestration” (LSO) Sonata “Billie” release for quoting and ordering as well as performance monitoring. Further incorporation of MEF standards will enable Zayo to better serve its global carrier and enterprise customers to buy services in a standardized way and to automate MEF 3.0 Carrier Ethernet. “Too often, customers must work around their system of record to manage multiple vendors. The swivel-chair of that information back into each system of record causes massive inefficiencies that can impact service delivery time and revenue,” said Stan Hubbard, MEF Principal Analyst. “MEF LSO APIs offer an automated, standardized way for service providers to buy and sell services and maximize return on their investment in interface development. We are excited that MEF LSO Sonata APIs enable Zayo’s innovative API Developer Portal.” About Zayo Group Holdings, Inc.

UJET Launches AI-Modeled Interaction Design to Identify and Value Optimal Virtual Agent Deployments

UJET | August 19, 2022

UJET, Inc., the world’s most advanced cloud contact center provider, today announces advanced AI-guided customer service operations that leverage hundreds of thousands of customer insights to drive enhanced customer experience (CX) capabilities and automated virtual agent responses. “Contact center demand is rising as labor shortages continue. As a result, wait times are longer than ever, service is suffering and customers are rightfully irritable. AI can and should take on a more prominent role to keep businesses running smoothly and customers happy. “Our latest AI technology holds immense potential to transform organizations and when designed correctly, can dramatically improve experiences, enhance efficiency, raise productivity, and drive growth.” Vasili Triant, Chief Operating Officer at UJET UJET’s AI-modeled Interaction Design for Virtual Agents helps companies identify the most common customer needs, informed by large-scale AI insights directly from customers, and then automates their resolution without consuming countless staff hours. Leveraging conversational AI and machine learning powered by Google’s CCAI Insights, UJET architects a contact center’s optimization roadmap to unlock the human and machine capabilities. With topic and conversation analysis, companies can get a prioritized list of the virtual agents they need to make the biggest difference for CX. This improves key customer care metrics such as wait time, self-service rate, first-call resolution and much more. The data gathered has dozens, if not hundreds of actionable insights and capabilities, including: Resolving recurring points of customer concerns, such as issues with payment methods, passwords, website/app rendering on different platforms and much more. Proactively address rising trends in complaints or returns before they become a bigger problem. Harnessing customer insights based on repeated requests for new product lines or enhancements to existing products/services. Gathering competitive intelligence directly from end-users. Hear directly from customers on what they liked or didn’t like with a previously tried competitor. "There's tremendous value in contact center data, and most current use cases leverage call data to automate answers to common questions. While a good start, UJET is using Google AI to go even further. This solution is using contact center data to optimize the entire CX flow by first identifying the best opportunities for automation,” says Dave Michels, principal analyst and founder of TalkingPointz Research. “With UJET, companies get massive-scale analysis of actual customer data, prioritized ideal use cases for virtual agents, and a detailed ROI and value analysis on those use cases. This use of conversational AI focuses more on overall CX rather than just automation.” UJET offers a fundamentally different way of thinking so companies can make automation their competitive advantage and help customer experience shift from cost center to value creator.
