EMC would like to ask for your participation in an AutoChat Proof-of-Concept (POC) that evaluates the effectiveness of Live Chat with expanded multiple language services through automatic translation. With a successful completion of this Proof-of-Concept (POC), auto translation will enable us to extend the hours of operation for Live Chat. Your participation is appreciated as we remain committed to helping you with your support needs.
Live Chat lets you engage directly with an EMC expert for your support needs without having to first log a service request via the web or through the call center. Live Chat can be used for issues of any severity, with time to resolution 30% faster than other support channels.
For this POC, automatic translation will be offered in Brazilian Portuguese, Chinese and Latin American Spanish for CLARiiON and NetWorker products . The availability for these products will be extended, covering the hours between Sunday 7 PM to Friday 4 PM (ET) with closures between 4PM- 7PM (ET) daily allowing you to engage EMC Support anytime during these hours.
Here’s a quick summary of the POC and its benefits:
All feedback gathered during the POC will be confidential and used only to assess the value of Live Chat utilizing machine translation. The POC will be available for approximately 5 months depending on feedback. In addition to providing survey feedback, you may also receive a phone call from one of our program managers to learn more about your experience.
To confirm your participation in our POC, or if you have any questions, emailPOCAutoChat@emc.com.
I'm curious about the outcome of this POC. Not that I would use it in the end, since English is just fine, but to stay informed. So when is this test?
Thanks for the inquiry. The POC is currently in progress and testing is underway. At this time we don’t have enough feedback yet to determine all the necessary requirements our customers are looking for. It would be great if you speak one of the languages in the POC and can test and provide your feedback. If you are interested, please email the alias POCAutoChat@emc.com and let us know that you are interested to help test the tool at which point we can send you the link to the test environment. Thanks again.
