Forethought, a leader in generative AI for customer support, has introduced Autoflows, a groundbreaking autonomous resolution capability for SupportGPT. This innovation marks a significant step towards a more efficient, goal-oriented, AI-centric future in customer support. In the fast-evolving landscape of customer support, AI is positioned to revolutionize the way businesses interact with their clients. However, many large enterprises, despite claiming to be AI-first, still rely on outdated manual workflows rooted in the CRM era. These workflows consume hours of valuable time and often lead to subpar performance, dissatisfied customers, and delayed value realization. Forethought aims to transform this outdated approach into a system of intelligence, redefining what it means to be truly AI-first. Deon Nicholas, CEO and Co-Founder of Forethought, reportedly emphasized, Automation over the past decade has focused heavily on rules and tasks and building manual workflows. But the manual workflow is the Achilles heel of the AI-first future. [Source – Businesswire] Autoflows empower customer support leaders to define desired issue resolutions in plain, natural language, eliminating the need for complex decision trees or predefined rulesets. Leveraging AI, Autoflows accurately predicts user needs and determines efficient steps to achieve these desired outcomes. This efficiency allows support agents to redirect their focus towards more complex issues, transcending simplistic task-oriented processes. Autoflows promise significant benefits: Enhanced Customer Experience: Autoflows facilitate natural conversations with customers, employing generative AI models trained on real agent responses and CRM data.
