There is so much in store with the release of Cognigy.AI v4.36 that we can’t wait to share with you. Without further ado, let’s dive right in!

Effective Staff Scheduling Using Engagement Heatmap

A pivotal factor for a great service experience is the ability to attend to and resolve customer queries quickly. And that requires effective resource planning, i.e., what is the workload going to be, and how many resources do you need to handle it?

The new Heatmap report in Cognigy Insights aims to help you achieve just that with relevant insights to better forecast and calculate base staff based on historical customer interactions. The Heatmap offers a time series visualization of agent handover traffic, allowing you to spot trends in peak workload and plan your staff scheduling accordingly. You can find it on the Engagement dashboard.

In addition to the Heatmap, Cognigy Insights also introduces a new detailed view for all existing reports. The detailed view displays an extended value range of your data set while giving additional filtering capabilities for deeper interaction analysis.

Accelerate Issue Resolution with Assist Bot

The agent needs assistance? We’ve got you covered! Cognigy Live Agent’s Assist Bot offers your workforce a new way to access helpful information and resources promptly while engaging with customers - without leaving their interaction window. It is readily available on the right-hand side of the agent’s conversation.

Assist Bot complements the Whisper Assist function by letting customer service teams actively and independently seek help from a virtual agent based on their needs in the moment.

To configure the Assist Bot, you will need to create the respective workflow in Cognigy.AI Flow Editor using the Webchat Endpoint, then add the Endpoint URL under the Cognigy Live Agent Inbox Settings.

Improved Attachment Handling in Live Agent

Oftentimes, agents need to send attachments like product policies, invoices, or contract terms to customers during live support. While Cognigy Live Agent already enables easy and quick file uploads, you can now better manage previous attachments through a new “Attachment” section. It offers a drop-down view of all uploaded files and associated conversations - sortable by date and inbox.

Furthermore, you can configure a retention policy to automatically delete obsolete files from the system based on their time-to-live (TTL).
