From the new Output Type support and Call Transfer option to more flexible Live Agent role management and a new Insights Report, here is what’s on the horizon with Cognigy.AI v4.44.
Augment CX using Adaptive Cards
Adaptive Cards are a platform-agnostic way to display a stream of information that is richly formatted and interactive. Authored in JSON, they offer a consistent and visually appealing way to present content within a chat or conversation interface while customizable to match the look and feel of the host application dynamically.
By rendering diverse elements such as text, images, buttons, videos, and audio, Adaptive Cards make it easier for users to consume and interact with the provided information. The results? A much more intuitive and engaging customer interaction.
With the release of v4.44, Adaptive Cards are now a native Output Type in the Say Node and Question Node, allowing you to easily blend them into conversation experiences on Webchat and any other supported channel. Likewise, they are supported across Cognigy.AI platform components, including Insights, Live Agent, Interaction Panel, and more. The Adaptive Card Designer gives you a real-time preview of the end user experience while editing the JSON schema to accelerate the design process.
New Call Transfer Option with Cognigy Voice Gateway
The Voice Gateway Transfer Node allows your voice agent to hand over the call to another target, for example, a human agent when escalation is needed. Besides the Refer Transfer Type to forward an existing call (using SIP Refer), we have recently added a new Dial Transfer option to initiate a new outgoing call (using SIP Invite).
The main difference between Refer and Dial Transfer is that in the former, the bot gets disconnected from the call after forwarding, while in the latter, the bot remains on the line and can listen to and transcribe the conversation. As such, the Dial option is ideal for deeper analytics, live transcripts, and agent assist use cases. Likewise, it gives you more flexibility in case your carrier does not support SIP Refer method.
Containment Rate Report in Cognigy Insights
Containment rates alone are by no means a determinant of customer service success. That said, they can provide a good efficiency indicator when put into the larger picture of contact center operations. In Cognigy Insights, you can now find the Containment Rate Report for any Virtual Agent as part of the Engagement Dashboard.
More Flexible Role Management in Live Agent
Cognigy Live Agent provides three user roles for access control: Administrator, Supervisor, and Agent. Starting from v4.44, you can now assign a user with multiple roles for extended permissions. For example, a contact center Team Lead might need both Supervisor and Administrator roles for team management and report access.
