Once the Live Chat playbook is set to active and installed on your website, you can go over to your Live Chat inbox and wait for your website visitors to start chatting with you. And in that world, we would want to push most of our PS work, especially for those verticals where we have a really established playbook already and we’ve gone deep to create value in those verticals, we’d like to push the PS work for that profile to the partners. But clearly, the pandemic and the election and just the macro uncertainties that have persisted throughout the year are a weigh factor, especially when it comes to a new logo, making a large commitment to a new partner like LivePerson. If you harvest details of the people who use your business chat service, you build a database for generating leads, comprising people you already know are interested in your products or services. Today, most of the chatbot platforms use a combination of a pay-per-call, monthly license fee, and pay-per-performance pricing models. Once again, as I — the reason we went into that is we’re seeing more and more use cases around sales and marketing, which is the broader concept of commerce.
Yes. And maybe you’re not seeing it, but how much of a pushback is budget related versus, I guess, more of the broader economic uncertainty? As George Orwell put it, “The trouble with competitions is that somebody wins them.” It is thus argued that government must intervene to prevent the formation of monopolies or, once formed, to control them. The next question is from Ryan MacDonald with Needham & Company. The next question is from Kirk Materne with Evercore. The next question is from Richard Baldry with Roth Capital. In terms of investments, one of the key areas of investment is to create the suite of self-service tools that enable our partners to work with monitor and assist the customers that they sell the Conversational Cloud to without human interaction on the LivePerson side. I wanted to start with on this conversion from sort of the ELA contract structure to the cost per interaction. With inserting a simple piece of HTML code, a floating chat button that doesn’t interfere with your website design, and key features to help you do chat right, you’ll be chatting to your website visitors without any cost. It’s these features that make RingCentral Live Chat the best live chat software for business.
The Resource palette gives instant access to analysis and search features as well as all the texts and tools. And some of that is attributable to just the ramping of the sales force after sizable investments in 2019. And as you suggested, there’s a portion of that productivity also attributable to the decision support tools and the automation that we’ve built for the global revenue organization. And what investments are you making internally to kind of support this kind of deal flow or perhaps any changes to your go-to-market motion? And we need to have a unified way to handle payment across messaging endpoints, across customers, because right now, it’s difficult and you have to go to a web flow out of messaging. We have COVID. If that’s impacting any decisions or extending sales cycles, just curious to know if there’s any color on that.

That’s great. And then just a follow up. Great to hear the partnership with Infosys. Congrats on a great quarter. Group credits on a good quarter. And I’d highlight one in particular for this year, one of the global top 20 banks we converted from ELA to CPI in the first quarter. All of this is consistent with what we’ve signaled at the 60% increase in automation since February is equally applicable to these ELA to CPI upsells. Sure. So we’ve had really great success, converting ELAs to CPI contract structures, the volume-based contract structures. That’s great. Thank you for the color. And that allows us, of course, to be more transactional as a business, which is a goal consistent with our desire to create enhanced operating leverage. The platform allows you to handle your customers’ issues fast with the help of automated messages. Some of these include: SMS, Facebook Messenger, Apple Messages for Business, WhatsApp, and more. A conversation with the brand’s agents will open instantly in the Messages app, and users can take their time responding when it’s convenient. The customer can continue to navigate to other pages in your online store, and the conversation stays open until they close it.
