Voicebot to answer customer parcel questions at GLS and DPD

There is a direct relation between the number of parcels shipped and the number of customer service questions received. Even in 2023 telephony remains a channel of choice for many customers. We present real-life results of the AskOrion voicebot at GLS and DPD: - how is the parcel voicebot used? - what is the intelligence behind it? - how many questions are automatically handled at GLS and DPD? - what about languages? - how does this affect customer experience? We know the industry is under pressure: fast responses to customers (end-receivers) help to keep churn under control.
