Proactive Messaging


Agent Experience for Proactive Messaging 

Proactive Messaging Service is taking a significant step forward with the introduction of the "Agent Experience for Proactive Messaging." Agents are no longer confined to wait Consumer to start a conversation; Agents can now initiate conversations with consumers!


Agent Experience for Proactive Messaging

Capabilities & Benefits:

Engage Proactively (Agent Experience): Agents are empowered to kick-start conversations with consumers. Agents can send proactive messages to individual or multiple consumers.

Recipients Entry Options: Agents can either manually input each consumer or upload them in bulk via a .csv file.

Conversation Routing: Admins and Agents can decide the routing of conversations. Once a conversation is established, it can be routed in different ways:

  • To the Agent who initiated the message.
  • To a specific skill defined by the Admin. (this capability will be released in Q3 '23)
  • To a specific skill defined by the Agent within the campaign creation.

User-Friendly Interface: Our proactive messaging service for Agents is designed to be intuitive and straightforward.

Controlled Access and SSO: Admins can determine which Agents have the privilege to send proactive messages.

Flexible Routing Configuration: Admins and Agents can decide the destination of conversations, whether it's with the Agent who initiated or based on a specific skill.


Analytics Dashboard: In the first phase, Agents or Agent Managers won't have access to an analytics dashboard in the Proactive Messaging Service. We’re continuously working on improving this, so stay tuned for updates!

Customer Enablement:

Self-Service Configuration: Admins can easily configure and give access to Agents to use the Proactive Messaging service. They can decide which Agent groups can have access to it, ensuring the right Agents are equipped with this powerful service.
