Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
If there is an API – we can integrate it. The most requested integrations are for PMS, chat platforms, workflow management, ticketing, and scheduling applications.
Absolutely. We offer Skye both with and without PBX integration; however, it is much more powerful when integrated.
With PBX integration, calls can be routed to any internal hotel extension with no added telephony costs or acquiring any additional DIDs. Further, we can identify the guest room from the calling number. In addition, Skye can make automated calls to guest rooms directly rather than to a guest’s mobile phone.
No. Skye can operate without ever touching your PMS. System. Clients find it useful to document interactions centrally using an existing PMS; however, it is not necessary in order to activate Skye.
When a customer interacts with Skye they can say or text AGENT (or a different keyword that you choose such as “human” or “operator”) at any time to be connected to a live person. The communication is then routed as you see fit – to someone on your team or to a Tyme Global agent. You also have the option to route to a ticketing system.
While we would love to support you with our best-in-class customer service agents, you do not need to connect Skye to Tyme Global. We can route call escalations wherever you wish.
We offer several support tiers from full-service to self-service options. If you select self-service, we are always available to assist should you have any questions.
Every time Skye hears a word or phrase it does not understand it logs the incident. These incident reports are then sent to a human team to review and update the lexicon.
We offer several support tiers that handle updates to the database. With the self-service option, a member or members of your team will receive notifications and be responsible for any making updates to the lexicon. Alternately, we can offer a full-service support package that will review and make updates to the system and report on them.
While chatbots and virtual agents like Skye run on software, only virtual agents use Artificial Intelligence (AI). Skye uses adaptive understanding and natural language processing to understand caller intent. With proprietary algorithms, Skye offers conversational interactions that deliver a more sophisticated customer experience than its simpler chatbot cousins.
