Conclusion: To improve call centre resources scheduling, some organisations have implemented software agents to either improve users’ experience and/or reach the right expert at the right time. However, self-service success depends on the quality of information available to the software agent and its analytical ability to provide reliable recommendations. Any deficiency in these resources will leave the software agent with no alternative but to call the live agents, thereby making the investment in agent technology questionable. Organisations should assess the software agent maturity and determine which level should be reached to fulfil the business imperatives. This note provides a self-assessing approach to address software agent shortcomings.
