WALTHAM, Mass., June 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Lionbridge Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: LIOX), today announced that it has signed a partnership with BETSOL, a leading provider of technology and staffing solutions for contact centers. With the agreement, BETSOL will resell Lionbridge's GeoFluent real-time translation solution to provide clients with omni-lingual support across their self-service, chat and agent-assisted digital channels, including chat. This allows BETSOL customers to increase customer satisfaction (CSAT) using their existing chat platform and without having to hire bi-lingual agents.
"By eliminating the need to hire multilingual agents, GeoFluent enables BETSOL customers to focus on providing exceptional levels of service. This, coupled with GeoFluent's translation quality and communications channel support, delivers significant value to our contact center customers," said Ashok Reddy, Vice President of Business Development, BETSOL. "Our partnership with Lionbridge adds to BETSOL's best-in-class technology for hosted contact centers."
GeoFluent's multi-channel support allows organizations to engage consistently with customers and prospects in their preferred languages across all channels including voice, email and chat. This enables contact centers to minimize complexity and risk, preserve global brand consistency and improve the overall customer experience (CX) at a fraction of the cost of other multilingual support strategies.
"Because research shows that consumers prefer self-service and digital channels over voice, organizations require a multilingual support strategy that includes, but isn't limited to, over-the-phone interpretation. With the volume of non-primary language interactions increasing, progressive contact centers are taking steps to better support their customers across all languages and channels," said Tom Tseki, VP & General Manager, Customer Care Solutions, Lionbridge. "We are excited to extend our GeoFluent solution to BETSOL and provide the multilingual customer care that contact centers need to succeed."
GeoFluent, a SaaS offering from Lionbridge, eliminates language as a barrier between contact centers and consumers. By providing omni-lingual support across the omni-channel, brands improve CX, increase revenue and decrease cost and risk. GeoFluent integrates with leading contact center communications platforms to maximize customers' existing investments, enabling them to support 95 percent of the world's GDP languages.
