Akio Recent Developments
Akio.Cx, Contact Center as a Service platform, is an easy-to-use app for agents with one screen to manage all conversations on all channels (Telephone, email, Chat, Messaging) and consult previous conversations. The platform benefits from a semantic analysis module, enabling increased customer knowledge through verbatim analysis on all channels. The platform also has a module to monitor and analyze customer and market conversations on the web and social media.
Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise and Akio, a French software company specializing in customer services and contact centers, announced a technology and business partnership to offer an innovative converged solution for multi-channel customer relationship management in the cloud. The technology partnership consists of providing a hybrid cloud architecture, enabling the Alcatel-Lucent OmniPCX Enterprise Communication Server to connect to Akio's cloud-based services. This technology will allow the integration of Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise patented call distribution capabilities (Alcatel-Lucent OmniTouch Contact Center Standard Edition) and Akio's multi-channel customer relationship services hosted in the cloud. With this solution, Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise customers will be able to offer a multi-channel service to their customers, extending the life of their existing voice call distribution systems.
The technology partnership also includes the integration of the Alcatel-Lucent RainbowTM Unified Communications as-a-Service (UCaaS) solution, also available in the cloud. Agents will be able to collaborate with each other and with experts using Rainbow's services, including group instant messaging, file and screen sharing, audio and video conferencing and intelligent assistance. These features can increase response rates from the first interaction and lower operating costs.
Akio Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) Activities
In May 2020, Akio, publisher of the Akio.Cx software platform for call centres and customer services, acquired Algoria, a software publisher specialised in unified communications. The combination of the two applications will allow any company to organise the processing of customer requests more efficiently, by facilitating collaborative work between customer advisors and internal employees, especially through teleworking.
