(Headquarters: Tokyo, Japan; President and COO: Masataka Okuda), was awarded the “Intelligent Business Innovation Award” for its intelligent business model and service philosophy at the “2017 Ebrun Future Retail Convention” hosted by Ebrun, a major e-commerce news media company in China.
Under the theme of “Intelligence and Business”, the 2017 Ebrun Future Retail Convention was held from December 20th to 22nd, 2017. The convention advocates the slogan “Intelligence changes business and e-commerce leads the future of the retail business”. Leaders including retail industry experts, scholars and leading e-commerce company executives gathered in Guangzhou and discussed the future path of the retail industry.
With the emergence of artificial intelligence and the concept of “New Retail”, the global e-commerce business is going through a new growth path. In order to keep up with the times, e-commerce businesses are seeking ways to innovate their business models in various ways. As a global BPO player with a 51-year history, transcosmos continues to evolve and innovate its services. Now, transcosmos develops and offers new technologies and services including “DataRobot”, a machine learning automation platform, “AI Copywriter KOTOBA TAKUMI” (beta version) which excels at infeed ads, and DEC (Digital marketing + E-commerce + Contact center) total solution services, as well as establishing an AI laboratory “Communication Science Lab”, to name a few.
transcosmos has also been working on service innovation in China. Since August 2017, transcosmos has been introducing “Dianxiaomi”, an Alibaba’s intelligent customer service robot, to brand stores on TMALL. Making “Dianxiaomi” serve customers on behalf of human customer service agents, clients can improve support efficiency and service quality whilst reducing costs. Through continuous optimization of its official and custom knowledgebase and data tracking, “Dianxiaomi” significantly improved its support accuracy and showcased its capability on 2017 Single’s Day (W11). The average solution rate of “Dianxiaomi” surpassed 60%, and for apparel stores the ratio achieved was over 75%, and as a result, “Dianxiaomi” successfully avoided customer losses that occur due to delayed response during peak support hours. What’s more, the service reduced customer support costs by over 50% and received high remarks from clients.
In the award ceremony held on December 21, 2017, Jackie Ding, Director of Operations of E-Commerce Business Division at transcosmos China received the “Intelligent Business Innovation Award” by Ebrun.
