Amadeus solves +90% of questions thanks to AgentBot

Amadeus, leading provider of solutions for the global tourism and travel industry, has been serving more than 190 countries and 71 local commercial organisations for the last 30 years. In 2017, they decided to automate their customer service, and their numbers have been growing ever since.

The travel company, partner of leading companies such as British Airways, Iberia and AMEX, decided to kick off a digital transformation that is still going at full throttle. First, with the modernization of their online knowledge platform, Amadeus Service Hub. Then came the implementation of AgentBot to improve their customer support. Today, and with the arrival of its smart chatbot to the United States, Amadeus affirms its presence and leadership throughout America.

Goals

In an era full of new technologies, Amadeus knew it was time to board a new flight. Its final destination? innovation. Changes in consumer habits required providing personalized and effective experiences. High demand needed 24/7 attention. In short, Amadeus needed a high quality, easy and fast support service. But how to count on the human factor for customer service without relying on human agents?

As an answer to this question came Amanda, virtual assistant of Amadeus. Amanda understands the natural language and intentions of the agent, being able to interact practically as a human being. The assistant is also equipped with machine learning technology, in order to detect and implement improvements quickly and across all channels. In this way, Amadeus guarantees its customers immediate responses with precise, human-like interactions over time.
