Avaya demonstrated a number of mobile engagement environments tailored to solve some of the most pressing business challenges in the country, and extending the access of Kenyans to government, healthcare, education and banking and telecommunication services, amongst others.
One of the mobile engagement solutions presented is the video-enabled, ATM like self-service kiosk, whereby customers of any bank in the country can transact with the bank’s call center, by video, virtual collaboration, email, social media, chat, SMS or phone, and to even switch between devices while talking to the same bank agent.
