Based on the success of Akela's botClosed A software application that handles customer interactions in place of a live human agent., contact center supervisor Sherry Khan wants to try it out. Sherry's agents regularly get calls from customers wanting to update their contact phone number. Sherry decides to use a bot with an API integration to update customer cards for calls like these. This will give her agents time to focus on more complicated customer interactions.

Sherry sets up a CXone Digital Experience integration in Bot Builder. She creates two new actions inside the integration. The first action retrieves the existing data from the customer card. The second action updates the phone number field in the customer card. Then, Sherry creates a storyClosed Used to train bot for interaction handling based on intent and context for this situation and adds messages and her new actions into the story.

As her agents receive more requests to change other customer details, Sherry can go back and add more actions to the integration so her bot can handle those tasks as well.
