    • Instantly react to changes in contact rates and agent shortages

    Arthur cuts handling times for automated topics by up to 80%


    With Arthur, customer service agents spend less time writing repetitive information, and searching for booking details. The required information for every customer query is presented, with a pre-written response from arthur. The agents simply approve responses, editing where necessary.

    • Over time, Arthur performance improves, learning where agents are adjusting suggested responses.
    • Customer service agents spend less time on mundane processes and queries, focusing instead on complex cases.
    • Arthur is always available, makes no spelling mistakes, and follows best practice for every response.
    • A single agent can process up to 5 times as many customer queries with Arthur assisting.



    Arthur uses the latest developments in Natural Language Processing (NLP), recurrent neural networks, and conversational interfaces to accurately determine customer meaning from free flowing text.

    With plugins for major CRM systems, and customer implementations for internal APIs, customer responses written by Arthur follow your internal best practice, and are completely customised for each interaction.

    Arthur can be deployed as a cloud system, or deployed on-premises. The Arthur system is scalable to millions of interactions and thousands of simultaneous customer service agents.
