WALTHAM, Mass., Jan. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Lionbridge Technologies, Inc. today announced that it has launched GeoFluent on the Salesforce AppExchange, empowering businesses to connect with their customers, partners and employees in entirely new ways. The new app integration brings GeoFluent's real-time translation solution to Salesforce Service Cloud, allowing Live Agent customers to improve global customer experience (CX) and reduce costs by adding multilingual capabilities to their existing applications without hiring bilingual agents. GeoFluent will allow agents to communicate in real-time with customers in over 100 languages.
Built on the Salesforce App Cloud, GeoFluent is currently available on the AppExchange at https://appexchange.salesforce.com/listingDetail?listingId=a0N3A00000DrzNkUAJ
GeoFluent Key Features
Consumer preferences are driving increases in digital channel usage while globalization and diversification are driving multilingual interactions. Research from Lionbridge and the International Customer Management Institute shows that the majority of contact centers expect the volume of non-primary language interactions to increase over the next three years.
The GeoFluent integration makes it easy to support multilingual chat by:
- Adding language capabilities to existing Live Agent applications without hiring bilingual agents
- Reducing the time and cost associated with supporting customers across multiple languages and geographies
- Reducing language barriers by enabling the best agent for a specific interaction to communicate with that consumer, as opposed to the agent that knows the language
- Enabling proactive chat across languages to drive increases in conversions and revenue
- Working as a plug-in to Live Agent, there's no IT involvement required to enable the GeoFluent functionality nor changes to how customers or agents use Live Agent
