The latest release includes skills-based routing, which lets companies match inquiries with the best available agent and provide differentiated customer service. The new release also helps agents locate the web pages viewed by customers before they submitted queries via the company website, giving agents better insight into what led the customer to ask for help.

Also new to Oracle Service Cloud is tighter integration with the cobrowse feature, which lets customers share their screen with an agent in instant mode, with no download required.

Finally, integration with Oracle Social Cloud has been strengthened. Oracle Social Cloud can now seamlessly escalate social posts to Oracle Service Cloud, where agents can use service engagement tools to respond. Companies can now more quickly resolve issues via social media.

“These latest integrations between Oracle Social Cloud and Oracle Service Cloud are driving more satisfying and rewarding customer experiences,” says Faz Assadi, vice president of Oracle Social Cloud. “And that’s helping our customers to meet and exceed their customers’ needs.”
