Bridge LT’s AI Technology Wins at Hyundai Global Customer Experience Championship
- Bridge LT, in partnership with Hyundai Motor Company, has successfully pioneered AI in the Hyundai Global Customer Experience Championship (CXC);
- In three rounds of competition, AI was used extensively to simulate real-life situations to test and evaluate both sales and service dealership staff;
- “AI has a promising future in staff development opportunities,” says Bridge LT CEO Vlad Shishkaryov.
The Championship, run by Hyundai Motor Company in partnership with Bridge Learning Technologies Ltd, has been hailed a success following the incorporation of AI into the global competition.
Structured to reflect real-life scenarios that sales or service dealership staff would encounter, the competition was attended by 130 representatives from around the world, speaking 20 different languages.
Integration of AI has helped remove any language biases and provided a ‘level-playing field’ for all participants. It also meant that all participants could compete in their own languages without the need of interpreters.
The technical challenges for the Bridge LT team were significant – it had to develop a digital solution that would be used by both contestants and judges.
The CXC digital solution has done just that, processing 3,250 short videos from the preliminary round and 260 large files from the role plays, along with facilitating automated written tests that enabled judges to provide fair evaluation and feedback.
The technological architecture sitting behind the CXC solution is impressive and includes Azure/Google cloud-based solutions, AI Cognitive services, native iOS and Android apps, all driven and supported by Bridge LT software development teams.
The successful utilization of AI in Learning and Development is just the beginning: “This is an exciting space to be in, and the pace of change is accelerating. We want to see learning becoming more dynamic, immediate and inspiring, and AI enables that. The possibilities in this field are only limited by our imagination,” says Vlad Shishkaryov, Bridge LT CEO.
Bridge LT is a boutique consultancy specializing in performance improvement sustained by technological solutions and IT Managed Service Outsourcing.
Bridge LT works with leading Asian-Pacific, European and North American companies creating software products for their businesses by assembling and managing world-class development and engineering teams.
Telenet Selects Infradata and BroadForward to Deliver Location Based Services
Infradata deploysBroadForward’sLocation Based Services (LBS) solution at Telenet, providing access tolocation information of devices across legacy and next generation mobile networks
Infradata and BroadForward announced today that they have been selected by Telenet to replace the existing legacy LBS system with the BroadForward Location Based Services solution. This allows Telenet, the largest provider of cable broadband services in Belgium who acquired mobile operator BASE in 2016, to expand their ability to provide location information. This is needed for a range of services, including emergency calls for police, firefighting, and ambulance services.
Telenet aims to become the leading converged connected entertainment and business solutions provider in Belgium. Telenet has a track record in delivering disruptive products to the market, specializing in the supply of broadband internet, fixed and mobile telephony services and cable television. Liberty Global, the world’s largest international TV and broadband company, has a 56% stake in Telenet.
Infradata is the leading expert and certified reseller of the entire range of BroadForward products, which includes next generation products for routing, interworking, security and number portability. Infradata is selected by Telenet based on their extensive experience in design, implementation and support of BroadForward products.
BroadForward LBS is a software based, multi-protocol solution, designed to manage device location information across legacy and next generation mobile networks. The productized solution includes standardized functions such as GMLC (Gateway Mobile Location Centre), LRF (Location Retrieval Function) and Routing Determination Function (RDF). The solution will later also incorporate the 5G Gateway Mobile Location Centre.
Luk Bruynseels, VP Mobile Technology at Telenet, about selecting Infradata, “Approximately 70 to 80% of all emergency calls are made from a mobile device, and with the network location information we can provide additional information to emergency services so they know where to find people when it matters. As the leading expert in BroadForward products, Infradata successfully replaced the legacy system with BroadForward’s state-of-the-art Location Based Services solution that works in a multi-vendor environment and across network types”.
Infradata Managing Director Nico van Buitenen added: “Mobility continues to grow at an astonishing rate. Two-thirds of the world’s population are already connected by mobile devices and IoT devices will grow to nearly 10 billion devices in just a few years from now. Due to the extensive knowledge and experience Infradata has internally on mobile networks, we are able to provide Telenet with a leading Location Based Services solution that works across legacy, current and future networks.”
