ARE YOU EXPERIENCED? Coveo, an experience intelligence platform, has launched “In-Product Experience Intelligence” — an AI-powered solution that gives customers the ability to offer customer service support based on a users behavior. “New users of an online service need a different level of support than power users who are familiar with the application,” explained Coveo, “Coveo In-Product Experience Intelligence analyzes the context of a help query to deliver the most appropriate support content.” Why we care: Having a tool that can automate customer inquiry responses and provide relevant support not only saves time and effort, but can boost the overall customer experience — an initiate that is top of mind for many marketers as the marketing organization takes over more of the customer journey.
