NEW YORK, May 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- LivePerson, Inc. (Nasdaq: LPSN), a global leader in conversational solutions, was awarded Best Customer Service Solution of 2020 for its Conversation Builder tool as part of the annual Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) CODiE Awards. The prestigious CODiE Awards recognize companies producing the most innovative business technology products across the country and around the world.
Conversation Builder disrupts the decades-old, expensive world of phone-based contact centers by making it possible to message with billions of consumers on channels like SMS, Apple Business Chat, Facebook Messenger, and WhatsApp. It empowers nontechnical staff to use a simple point-and-click interface to build AI-powered chatbots that help automate conversations on the world's most popular messaging channels, apps, and websites.
"We're proud to see Conversation Builder and the team behind this incredible technology honored yet again for helping brands "go conversational," which is all the more important in a time when doing business in person and over the phone is difficult," said Robert LoCascio, founder and CEO of LivePerson. "Coming on the heels of being recognized for innovation by Fast Company and for enabling outstanding customer service by the Stevie Awards, this is more proof that our AI-powered messaging solutions are changing the fundamentals of how brands connect to their customers."
"Congratulations to this amazing group of 2020 Business Technology CODiE Award winners," said SIIA President Jeff Joseph. "These trying times have underscored the importance of innovative technologies like never before. The products and services we honor today connect us to colleagues and customers, ensure business practices move forward, provide new insights from data, and create new jobs and market opportunities. They represent the best of high-impact, outcome-focused innovation."
SIIA, the principal trade association for the software and digital content industries, announced the full slate of CODiE winners during an online winner announcement earlier today in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
