Zendesk Transforming AI CX with Anthropic and AWS

Zendesk has announced a collaboration with Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Anthropic to drive better customer experiences with advanced AI features

Immersive customer experience (CX) is quickly becoming the new standard, redefining how companies engage with their customers. When it comes to transforming CX generative AI (Gen AI) is a valuable tool: enabling unique and personalised experiences and recommendations for customers.

Now at its Relate global conference, SaaS customer service company Zendesk has announced a collaboration with Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Anthropic to offer faster, more efficient and accurate AI features, with an end goal to drive better customer experiences. 

As part of the deal, Zendesk will utilise Amazon Bedrock, a service for building and scaling generative AI (Gen AI) applications, and Anthropic’s industry-leading Claude 3 family of large language models to offer its 100,000+ customers the flexibility to deploy sophisticated LLMs for each unique customer interaction.

“AI is transforming customer and employee interactions, and soon, it will shape virtually all of them. This transformation requires mastery and efficient deployment of the best LLM technology available,” said Adrian McDermott, Chief Technology Officer of Zendesk. “Our long-standing partnership with AWS and work with Anthropic means our customers have a CX platform and choice of powerful LLMs to help them set a new standard for service, with AI and automation providing support quickly and effortlessly.”

Zendesk: Using AI to transform customer experience

Zendesk uses AI to transform CX by providing intelligent, instant responses to customer queries, eliminating the need for coding or expensive model development. Its foundational models are designed and trained using decades of CX data and industry-specific insights, saving Zendesk customers hundreds of hours each week. 

Anthropic’s Claude 3 integrated with the Zendesk platform will allow businesses to deliver empathetic, real-time responses, cutting down on wait times and boosting customer satisfaction, while Zendesk’s CX data and deep industry-specific insights, combined with AWS and Anthropic’s generative AI allow for support that is customised and aware of the context, fitting each customer’s need. 

“There’s never been a more important time to redefine what's possible in customer engagement and support. By harnessing Amazon Bedrock’s fully managed capabilities to build generative AI applications with security, privacy, and responsible AI, Zendesk is set to empower businesses worldwide to deliver more personalised, efficient, and intuitive support experiences,” said Atul Deo, General Manager of Amazon Bedrock at AWS. “Together, Zendesk and AWS are committed to ensuring that businesses are equipped with the tools they need to thrive in an ever-evolving digital landscape.”

Human and AI Agents are able to use Zendesk generative AI capabilities and Claude to understand sentiment and provide a level of support that is empathetic to a customer's unique needs. These tools also adapt and improve from every interaction, enabling companies to identify trends and implement improvements in real-time.

"Businesses are embracing AI to improve customer engagement and build stronger relationships, with 82% of CX business leaders now rethinking their entire customer experience based on advancements in AI," said Kate Jensen, Head of Revenue at Anthropic. "By integrating Anthropic's Claude 3 model family with Zendesk and Amazon Bedrock, businesses gain access to a powerful and trusted AI solution that leverages Claude's multilingual capabilities, exceptional writing skills, and ability to understand nuanced conversational context. These strengths enable businesses to provide more personalised, efficient, and effective customer support across various languages and channels, ultimately leading to improved customer satisfaction scores, increased loyalty, and revenue growth."
