"We are thrilled to be recognized by the Banking Tech Awards USA for our AI Coach simulation training solution that improves agent confidence and performance”

Zenarate AI Coach is the "flight simulator" for customer and prospect engagement where agents in training are immersed in life-like conversation, screen, and chat simulations to master high-impact topics they will face with live customers and prospects.

Zenarate uses advanced NLP and NLU to provide agents a life-like simulation training experience. With Zenarate’s AI Coach, newly hired and tenured agents in training role-play with their personal unbiased AI Coach, from home or office, using their own words without any scripting. Just like human-to-human role play, Zenerate coaches agents on tone, soft skills, and best & required best practices throughout their role-play simulations. Contact center and training leaders auto-certify agents to engage with live customers through their Simulation Scorecard and Simulation Call Listening. Agents report top-decile user experience scores, citing how real their simulations feel, and how their AI Coach improves their confidence, removes their anxiety, and prepares them to engage with live customers.

"We are thrilled to be recognized by the Banking Tech Awards USA for our AI Coach simulation training solution that improves agent confidence and performance," said Brian Tuite, CEO and Founder of Zenarate. "Winning a Banking Tech Award, especially in the FinTech of the Future – Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning Category, is a reflection of our national and regional bank clients using their AI coach to transform KPIs in customer service, collections, fraud, wealth management, and banking centers.”

Zenarate’s AI-powered simulation training platform delivers immediate KPI lift as soon as new agents engage with live customers, and tenured agents return to live customers confident and proficient on call types and skills they previously struggled with. Zenarate AI Coach delivers on average:

  • 56% faster agent speed-to-proficiency vs. traditional training.
  • 33% higher average CSAT (customer satisfaction) scores from agents delivering soft skills, best practices, and first call resolution.
  • And 32% lower agent attrition from agents experiencing early job satisfaction and success.
