Swindon, UK (PRWEB UK) 23 July 2013
ISL Online, the provider of cloud-based remote desktop, live chat and web conferencing solutions, today announced a partnership with Lionbridge Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: LIOX), a leading provider of translation solutions, to deliver customer support software with automated multi-language chat translations. The ISL Pronto live chat support software is now integrated with Lionbridge GeoFluent to help businesses assist international customers more effectively. Whilst ISL Pronto enables website customer service with real-time interactions between online visitors and help desk operators, the integrated GeoFluent service delivers instant, quality translations of their text chats. Translations into and between 30+ languages are initiated on-demand by customers or operators within the existing ISL Pronto chat application.
ISL Pronto is live chat support software for website that lets you respond directly to your online visitors and offer immediate technical assistance. Apart from basic text chatting, rich functionality such as customer identification, CRM integration, quality desktop sharing and a video conference, improves consumer satisfaction and increases conversions. Unlike other live chat solutions, ISL Pronto is available in 32 languages, including most of the European languages, as well as Arabic, Japanese and Chinese.
Although international companies find the service appealing, the main problem with real time support remains in language related issues. “Since the language barrier exists in a surprisingly high percentage of chats,” explained Jure Pompe, CEO and co-founder of ISL Online, “we wanted to improve ISL Pronto with an automated on-demand translation service to help assist international customers better, faster and without the extra language-specific operators. Lionbridge’s GeoFluent was the logical addition to our chatting facilities.”
GeoFluent is a customized automated translation solution for customer support applications such as online chat and community applications. Unlike other automated translation solutions, GeoFluent’s patent-pending technology delivers an actionable and understandable real-time translation where other automated approaches fail, and where traditional translation approaches are not practical. With GeoFluent, support organisations can expand their international operations more easily while reducing their costs.
“We’re delighted to see ISL Online join the growing list of online chat providers that support GeoFluent,” said Joe Fiorentino, Vice President and General Manager of the Lionbridge Global Software division. “ISL Online and Lionbridge share common values. We are both committed to driving client success by building innovative solutions with real time benefits.”
The integrated solution’s prime user, Europ Assistance Spain, who is a part of the Europ Assistance Group, the oldest and most experienced travel assistance network in the world, welcomes the new functionality. “The integration of ISL Pronto with an automatic translation provider like GeoFluent has proved a success at the tech level. Now our call centre can easily and quickly support all customers no matter the language and without waiting time,” commented Santiago Pérez, IT Head of Europ Assistance Spain. “Having been a satisfied user of ISL Pronto for four years, we appreciate the recent efforts and dedication ISL Online and Lionbridge have shown to provide improvements and new features in the live chat solution.”
The integrated ISL Pronto and GeoFluent solution is offered as a standalone solution with its own server installation. More information on ISL Pronto with GeoFluent is available at http://www.islonline.com/technology/integrations/geofluent.htm.
