How do you think customers feel when they have to repeat their address for the 100th time when ordering food from their favourite restaurant/fast food chain? In fact, How do YOU feel when you have to repeat your address every time you want to order food?
Text to speech is not a new technology, we’ve used TTS for accessibility, education, telecoms and other industry verticals, however, we’ve never really thought about how it can be used in F&B & Delivery, to illustrate how I believe TTS will revolutionize the F&B Industry, I’ve built a list of pretty reasonable assumptions.
Put these assumptions in mind
Average Call Time: 3-4 MinutesOrdering for 2 hungry people who usually order in
Let put these assumptions to play – Ok, Ready, Set, Go!
You called to order food an agent answers, minute 1 of the call begins, the agent greets you nicely or doesn’t. Asks you to confirm your delivery address or asks you to repeat your address all together, getting into minute 2 of the call, it’s finally time to make your order, “I want a cheeseburger combo large, but I don’t want pickles and I want the happy meal, and two extra large fries with cheesy sauce” – you actually made this same order last week and the week before for Friday order-in day with your son. At this point your around minute 3 of your order, assuming that you didn’t make any side talk or that your agent heard everything you said. Minute 4 arrives, at this point the agent is now confirming your order and saying goodbye.
In a perfect world the steps I mentioned above should go very smoothly, but we all know it’s not a perfect world. Why don’t you just automate this whole process or at least parts of it?
Text to speech technology will allow you to automate parts of the conversation that you couldn’t have automated before such as greeting your customer by his or her name or confirming unique addresses. The nature of conversations like these is very dynamic as customer names change and addresses change, automating conversations like this would mean you would have to record over 50,000 unique names and I can’t even begin to estimate how many unique addresses making automation of such a call close to impossible. Integrating text to speech with your IVR will allow you to communicate dynamic information to your customers effortlessly.
Hold up, why should I automate this process?
1. Improve Customer Experience
Leave a smile on your customer’s face by offering them a quicker and easier ordering By streamlining and personalizing the ordering process you can drastically improve the customer experience.
2. Shorten Call Durations
Eliminate repetitive tasks such as confirming customer names and addresses therefore making call duration shorter.
3. Quality Control & Consistency
Greet your customers and confirm their addresses automatically using a uniform two-step approach providing consistency across all incoming calls.
4. Reduce Operational Costs & Improve Agent Utilization
By automating parts of the ordering process, more agents will be able to focus on the customer’s actual order and not on the administrative and time consuming tasks associated with the call, allowing you to better utilize your agents.
