What is AI Powered Routing

Maven’s AI Powered Routing provides a centralized experience to create dynamic policies to achieve routing to the best human agent, skill, or bot. Routing policies are based on intent and/or context attributes such as consumer profile data, operational context (load, predicted wait times, KPIs), and conversation history.

The power of Maven’s AI Powered Routing comes from its ability to use a variety of attributes in routing policies - including intents, context, and predictive AI models - in order to create highly personalized journeys to optimize care and sales experiences.

Key benefits

With Maven, brands easily build routing policies based on profile information, interaction history, and other contextual data. Maven’s AI-Powered Routing works by combining all available information - such as intent, contexts and predictive AI models - together with a brand’s predefined policies to make the best routing decision for the specific conversation.

Benefits include:

  • Unlock highly personalized journeys to optimize care and sales experiences
  • Customize routing based on intent, context, and predictive AI
  • Solve customer requests quickly by routing dynamically to human agents or bots
  • Increase agent and operational efficiency by leveraging automations in routing

Common use cases:

All brands can offer relevant bots and knowledge base articles proactively and at the right time in the conversation, replacing sticky notes and saving time compared to structured content. Here are some use cases per industry:

  • When a brand suffers an exceptional event (storm, incident), route to a bot for intents related to the outage. For all other intents (e.g. billing) route to a human agent pool
  • Route a group of intents (e.g. order enquiry, cancellation, scheduling) to a general order skill unless the customer is a VIP, then send them to their Dedicated Advisor
  • For lost baggage intent, return to the same agent if the customer is returning within a given time period; for VIP customers, route to high priority skill

How AI-Powered Routing works

AI-Powered Routing gives brands the power to author policies based on intent and/or context attributes (such as consumer profile data), operational context (load, wait time, KPIs), conversational history, or predicted outcomes (e.g. sales funnel conversion)

When a conversation comes into LiveEngage, Maven works in the background to quickly understand the consumer’s intent, fed from information via Intent Analyzer. It then uses Maven’s AI-Powered Routing to assess the conversation’s context from various data sources and route to the right agent or bot.

Brands can build and manage policies using the Maven workspace:
