“Nobody phrases it this way, but I think that artificial intelligence is almost a humanities discipline. It’s really an attempt to understand human intelligence and human cognition.”

In today’s constantly changing world, Artificial Intelligence (AI) has gained huge momentum. AI today is not just specific to some particular sectors but, healthcare, transportation, manufacturing, retail, etc. use AI for better outputs. AI-based applications undoubtedly improve business productivity; moreover, AI-based analytics helps businesses make better decisions.

Artificial Intelligence is the field of computer science that makes machines solve and simplify problems speedily and accurately. AI helps to analyse inputs and delivers correct outputs.

With the use of AI, businesses can build products faster and can deliver services more rapidly and accurately, so many organizations want an ‘AI connection’ to optimize their business process management.

Business process management (BPM) is the process of looking after the existing systems in the organization to ensure better competence and productivity. BPM takes a positive approach to identify business concerns and take precautionary measures to sort out the same as soon as possible.

Well, as BPM plays a critical role is re-establishing business processes for better results, AI is also significant.  Plugging the AI technology into the business is necessary for excellence and therefore, here we have the reasons that show how AI impacts business processes and affects optimization.

AI analyses sales calls

When we talk about business processes and their effective operations, sales calls play a crucial role. Since sales is the bread and butter of businesses, it earns revenue for the organization and is of utmost importance.

Earlier, sales analysis was a manual process, but now after the introduction of AI, all the processes can be automated. An AI tool for sales analysis is Gong, which helps to record all the outbound sales. Later, these calls are inspected to know the cues which inform management about the calls’ updates and the aspects that are essential to look after.

Gong helps the business to make positive changes to enhance brand image and strengthen customer loyalty.

However, to learn from customer experiences, it is essential to get an overview of customer sentiments, which is not possible without tracking their responses.

This is where AI helps! It automates several tasks for better results to customers. Businesses know that customers do not like waiting in queue for long to have the answers to their queries. AI comes to rescue!

It helps businesses with AI tools like Workato.

This intelligent automated tool converts voicemail into texts, which further helps the business analysts get a better understanding of the customers’ sentiments. The tool also helps the agents in giving appropriate answers by understanding customer pain and assists in taking steps to avoid the customer from suffering any further.

Workato works to automate voicemail follow-ups into the system and its intelligent AI-driven functionality converts speech to texts, making a transcript of the voicemail. Further, the text is added to the service ticket, which helps the agent have an idea of the customer complaint type so that finding a solution is easier.

AI helps to reveal fraud

Machine learning algorithms are known to suspect and find glitches in business processes. Institutions use intelligent algorithms to find suspicious possibilities like money transfers and payment hacks.

AI algorithms are being used to find skulduggery and are used for cybersecurity, customs clearing processes, insurance, etc. The use of this AI based learning is especially helpful in research and development to help organizations gain a competitive edge to stay ahead of other challenges.
