Talkdesk Enhances Generative Artificial Intelligence Customer Experience In Retail With Deeper Self-Service Use Cases, New Real-Time Insights For Agents

San Francisco, CA & New York, NY (BUSINESS WIRE) - Talkdesk®, Inc., a global provider of artificial intelligence (AI)-powered customer experience (CX) technology that serves enterprises of all sizes, today announced new generative artificial intelligence (GenAI) capabilities that power deeper self-service and agent-supported workflows, helping retail brands deliver seamless customer experiences. These enhancements are available on Talkdesk Retail Experience Cloud™, an AI-powered, out-of-the-box, customer service platform purpose-built for brands in the retail, e-commerce, and consumer goods space.

Announced this week at CommerceNext, new preconfigured GenAI-powered use cases available on Talkdesk Autopilot for Retail enable retailers to gain instant value by autonomously resolving common yet complex customer service scenarios through self-service. Consumers now have greater control over managing and changing individual items in a large order, without canceling the full order. Via connection with location directories, customers receive personalized, contextual recommendations based on the best physical location for their needs.

Talkdesk has made personalized and convenient customer service more effortless than ever for retail brands. The Talkdesk Retail Experience Cloud now gives agents a live, real-time view of consumers’ shopping carts to provide tailored, timely, and relevant service. As a result, agents can drive more value for their business through increased average order value, customer satisfaction, and items per order.

Talkdesk Autopilot for Retail leverages GenAI to automate common customer inquiries related to orders, shipments, and deliveries. With deep and broad integration into retail systems, Talkdesk Autopilot allows retailers to provide hassle-free, round-the-clock, excellent self-service experiences to their customers.

Talkdesk is delivering AI-powered customer experience innovations that help enterprises across retail and other industries set themselves apart in the market. Talkdesk Retail Experience Cloud gives brands such as Serta Simmons,, King Arthur Flour Company, Inc., and Tactacam a better way to connect with, care for, and know their customers—wherever, whenever.
