If you\u2019ve been following my blogs lately, you\u2019ll see I have been talking a lot about composability. In short, composability is the concept of using modular technologies to autonomously build your own custom, flexible products, and services. Unlike proprietary, monolithic software \u2013 which tethers you to a legacy vendor\u2019s roadmap \u2013 you can move more quickly through discovery and gain the agility needed to continually evolve and optimize experiences.\nBut what do these experiences look like? How can composability be used to create more value for those who have stake in your business? If you haven\u2019t yet, I recommend reading the first and second blogs in this series to gain a better understanding of the evolution from monolithic software and what composability means. With that, let\u2019s look at some valuable use cases.\n\nAppointment scheduling\n\nSending appointment reminders is a low added value and time-consuming activity for customer care professionals. This is a challenge across multiple verticals including healthcare, financial services, and government. Organizations can use a cloud-based, AI-enabled appointment scheduling service \u2013 via the power of composability \u2013 to automatically send appointment reminders across various channels including voice, SMS, social messaging apps, and webchat. This integrates with various CRMs and company applications and for healthcare organizations is also HIPAA compliant. The results: fewer missed appointments, customer service cost savings, and more time for agents to focus on customer care.\nOlmsted County in Minnesota deployed Avaya OneCloud \u2013 our composable communication architecture platform \u2013 during COVID-19 to create a contactless, virtual waiting system for citizens needing to take care of basic tasks like driver\u2019s license and passport renewals. Automatic notifications are sent to remind people about their appointment, their expected service timeline, and when to enter the building to meet with an employee.\u00a0Learn more here.\n\nAutomated transactions \n\nAs interaction channels and the volume of those interactions continue to grow, organizations have no choice but to leverage the power of automation to streamline basic, repetitive tasks like ordering, reordering, bill payment, and service changes to curb long wait times, reduce contact center costs, and allow agents to efficiently focus on processes. Cloud-based, AI-enabled automation once again can be used for simplifying these recurring transactions across the channel of the customer\u2019s choice, with HIPAA, PCI, and GDPR compliance as needed. Composability makes it easy to create workflows integrated with company applications and data bases.\nOne Avaya customer \u2013 a leading provider of home respiratory services and medical equipment \u2013 replaced its legacy outbound dialer with Avaya composable solutions to notify and request responses for approximately 10,000 customers for product reordering. Results are automatically uploaded in the ordering system. The company was able to automate more than 3 million calls per year as a result, dramatically increasing reorder rates and revenues.\n\nEmergency response\n\nComposable solutions can be used to create one seamless, integrated emergency notification system that supports multiple different channels including SMS, email, social media, and even digital signage. Whether it\u2019s a city needing to update citizens about a transportation shutdown, or a school needing to inform students and teachers about an active shooter, users can ensure fast and reliable communication with multi-language support and automated translation. The service is highly scalable, HIPAA, PCI, and FedRAMP compliant, and can be implemented in a matter of days.\nTexas-based Round Rock Independent School District implemented Avaya OneCloud to create an emergency notification solution that could meet the specific needs of its nearly 50,000 students and 7,000 staff members across 55 school buildings. The district can instantaneously send alerts to keep students, faculty, staff members, and visitors protected and safe.

Users can improve information access with tailored communications to the individual user, free up staff with process automation, and scale as needed with high agility and flexibility \u2013 all while meeting compliance requirements like HIPAA.\nHarris County, TX created a cloud-based notification solution as part of their Case Investigation and Contact Tracing program using Avaya OneCloud. At its peak, the county was recording upwards of 1,800 new positive cases per day.\u00a0Avaya and the county launched the solution within a matter of days, and the department uses it to proactively engage with and collect data from thousands of residents daily via automated outbound voice calls and SMS notifications. Overall, the solution has enabled the county to improve COVID-19 investigations by 25%.

A 2020 study found that 85% of shoppers have increased curbside pickup since the pandemic began, and 80% expect to increase their use of curbside pickup post-COVID. Curbside pickup allows retailers to avoid shipping and delivery charges, get orders fulfilled sooner and with higher predictability, and create an overall more convenient and frictionless customer experience.\nUsing the power of composability, retailers can create a cloud-based virtual agent solution that can take customer orders, send automated notifications on order status, and escalate to a contact center agent or store employee by voice or SMS if needed. They can even send automated customer satisfaction surveys. The results: new revenue streams, employee workload reduction, and higher customer and employee satisfaction in a new world of contactless service.
