Benefits of an Advanced Complaint Handling System with AI and Predictive Analytics Capabilities

Many companies today rely on intelligent platforms and advanced technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, collaborative tools, and real-time data/analytics for informed decision making, improving customer experience, and solving their challenges at record speed.

ComplianceQuest’s Complaint Management system enables you to queue all complaints that require further triaging. Then, the complaint coordinator reviews the triage complaints based on risk level by using data and the Artificial Intelligence framework of Einstein Predictive Analytics.

Once the triage is completed, a complaint is routed based on the type, urgency, location, or whatever variables are needed by an organization for additional inquiries and assessed to report to a regulatory authority. Following this, the relevant departments and personnel get notification automatically, and based on the complaint’s severity and priority, escalation mechanisms are triggered.
