Afiniti enterprise behavioral pairing discovers and predicts patterns of interpersonal behavior to optimally pair customers with agents. Afiniti’s technology examines data and commercially available information tied to customer identity to determine patterns of successful behavioral interactions and applies these patterns in real-time.

“Native integration between Avaya and Afiniti simplifies the deployment of behavioral pairing technology, which matches the customer with the contact center agent most likely to deliver the best customer experience and desired outcome,” said Brent Kelly, principal analyst at KelCor. “This deeper integration allows Avaya’s contact center customers to deploy Afiniti AI technology without disrupting contact center operations while enabling them to achieve measurable benefits whether it be for cost reduction, higher conversions, better retention, more first-call resolutions, or other desirable contact center metric improvements.”

Avaya also is strengthening its Avaya IX Workspaces desktop solutions with enhanced capabilities designed to bolster agent performance for both inbound and outbound contact center engagement. Agents are provided with a unified agent desktop to handle digital inbound voice and non-voice interactions and outbound interactions.
