Today we are announcing our partnership with Webex by Cisco, a leading provider of collaboration technologies powering hybrid work and customer experience, to deliver auto-MATE. auto-MATE is our Generative AI framework. It helps organizations boost productivity and reduce operational costs by automating post-call tasks through an extensive library of automated workflows such as Auto-call-summaries and Auto-QA.


We are committed to driving innovation in the field of artificial intelligence, and auto-MATE’s expansion to Webex Contact Center is a testament to that commitment. With auto-MATE, we are redefining the customer service landscape by offering a solution that combines the power of Generative AI with the security, scalability and responsibility needed for a world-class enterprise solution.


auto-MATE framework is not just an incremental improvement, but a transformative leap that bridges the gap between Generative AI methodologies and the needs of modern businesses. The solution provides applications to improve contact center processes and agent experience, including after-call work reduction, automated QA of all interactions, centralized reporting, and comprehensive call analytics. Commerce.AI estimates its customers see up to a 30% to 50% increase in productivity from the automation of after-call tasks and the ability to export data to CRMs and other leading business applications.


auto-MATE is now available on the Webex App Hub. For more information, please visit: https://apphub.webex.com/applications/automate-by-commerceai-commerce-ai


Why Do Contact Centers Need Generative AI Upgrade?

Unstructured data generated at a contact center was analyzed traditionally using human interpretation and therefore was limited in terms of coverage. Historically around only 1%-2% of this data gets analyzed using manual evaluation. From last few years, AI was used in order transcribe the calls. However, traditional AI techniques were not able to solve these problems beyond sentiment analysis and topic modelling. Operating on the powerful backbone of LLM, Commerce.AI auto-MATE™ framework is not just an incremental improvement, but rather a transformative leap that bridges the gap between traditional AI methodologies and the needs of the modern business world.

The limitations of traditional AI techniques before Generative AI

Before delving into the capabilities of auto-MATE™, it's essential to understand the limitations of traditional AI models in the contact center domain. Traditional AI methodologies, including sentiment analysis and topic modeling, while valuable, often provided only a surface-level understanding of customer interactions. These techniques were adept at identifying broad patterns or sentiments but lacked the precision and nuance to understand the deeper intricacies and underlying themes of customer conversations.

For instance, sentiment analysis could tell a company if a customer was unhappy, but it couldn't provide the detailed context about why they were unhappy or offer actionable insights on how to address the issue proactively. Similarly, while topic modeling could recognize the primary subjects of discussion, it couldn't effectively map out the multifaceted web of related sub-topics or the changing dynamics of a conversation in real-time.

Commerce.AI auto-MATE powered by LLM (Large Language Model)

Commerce.AI has created an automation framework, called auto-MATE™ for workflows such as call summarization, auto-recommend wrap-up codes, extract sentiment, intents and other pertinent CX insights. It also involves pre-built connections to CRMs/Datalakes and BI tools in order to export the structured intelligence to enterprise system of record.

Power of auto-MATE

Eliminating after-call work and transforming efficiencies across contact center roles

Commerce.AI auto-MATE™ is bringing in a host of applications to improve contact center Administrative processes and Agent Experience, including:

  • After Call Work Elimination
  • Auto-QA of 100 % of Interactions
  • Centralized reporting
  • 100% Call Analytics
  • Custom Dashboard Visualization

 We are estimating that, on average customers will see up  to a 30%-50% increase in productivity by automating tasks such as QA, Call  Summaries, Export to CRM Tools and form extraction. Making enterprises more  efficient.

auto-MATE provides a variety of tasks for a range of applications. Let's explore some of the many applications of auto-MATE™

Secure deployment of generative AI: Use case in production with Azure OpenAI

Since auto-MATE™ uses Azure OpenAI as the primary LLM, it is important to examine security compliance achieved by Azure OpenAI. Azure OpenAI has achieved HIPAA compliance and following other compliance standards.

When considering any tool for use in a context that requires HIPAA compliance, it is essential to verify that the tool has been designed with HIPAA requirements in mind and has undergone sufficient testing and certification to ensure compliance. It would also be advisable to consult with a legal expert or a professional experienced in HIPAA compliance.

When it comes to Generative AI specific considerations, following are some important aspects about auto-MATE™ and underlying Azure OpenAI infrastructure.

The models are stateless: no prompts or generations are stored in the model. Additionally, prompts and generations are not used to train, retrain, or improve the base models.
