While Apple’s Siri and Amazon’s Alexa might be the first few things that cross your mind when it comes to automated personal assistance and the world’s top AI companies, 2019 has witnessed a surge in particular uses of AI. Ever wondered where the chat boxes that silently pop up when you navigate to a website and warmly ask you if you have any questions, come from? They are products of companies that use AI to automate customer service. These aim to either replace or aid call centers and any other person standing behind the telephone or online chat rooms with fully automated bots that are up and running 24/7. Most of these top AI companies, however, go beyond solving the problem of call center automation and continuously roll out products that automate many essential aspects of businesses.

What is AI Automation?

According to John Mccarthy, the scientist who coined the term “Artificial Intelligence,” Artificial Intelligence is the science of making intelligent machines. Therefore, AI Automation could be seen as the use of software and hardware to create products that mimic and ultimately, supersede human behavior. While AI Automation has a wide range of uses, this article focuses on its use in business processes, especially in customer-facing functions.

How is AI Used in Automating Business Processes?

The most prominent use of AI in business applications is automating customer support. While replacing the whole human interaction in customer support is a far goal, the current state of products aim to reduce inefficiencies and loss of resources and time in accomplishing tasks that could be fully automated. Moreover, these companies roll out multiple products to ease customer support as much as possible. Most of them have user friendly solutions to help people working in client facing roles by providing them with applications that store and visualize customer history. Similarly, the majority of these companies have solutions for management to provide them with metrics to show how their operations are running and to help them with opportunities to automate day-to-day tasks, with the goal of eliminating inefficiencies. Note that since most of these companies are B2B, their products might vary depending on their clients.
