Getting Started with CCAI Platform

Here’s a step-by-step walkthrough of the initial setup process:

Step 1: Creating Your CCAI Platform Account

Before you can dive into CCAI Platform’s features, you’ll need to create a CCAI Platform instance within the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) console. Here’s what you need before getting started:

  • Quota: Ensure you have the necessary quota granted for the CCAI Platform instance size (shirt size, based on number of agents) you plan to use. This determines the resources allocated to your instance. If you require quota, you can reach out to your Google Cloud Account team for assistance.

  • Permissions: You’ll need a “Contact Center AI Administrator” role within your GCP project to create and manage CCAI Platform instances.

Here’s how to create a CCAI Platform instance:

1. Access the GCP Console: Log in to your Google Cloud Platform account. If you don’t have one, you’ll need to create it first. In order to create Google Cloud Platform account follow these steps:

    • Visit the GCP Console website by typing the following URL in your browser’s address bar:

    • If you already have a Google account: Enter your email and password associated with your Google account. 

    • If you don’t have a Google account: Click on “Create account” and follow the instructions to set up a new one.

    • Once logged in, select your country, read and accept the “Terms of Service” and click “AGREE & CONTINUE.”

    • Enter your billing information.

    • You will be taken to the GCP console dashboard. You will need to create a project first to get started.

Now that you’ve created a project within your GCP account, you’re ready to start setting up your CCAI Platform instance!

2. Search for CCAI Platform: Use the search bar at the top of the GCP console and type “CCAI Platform.”

3. Create Instance: Click on the “Contact Center AI Platform” result and then click the “Create Instance” button.

4. Configure Your Instance: You’ll be presented with a configuration form where you need to provide the following:

    • Instance Name: Give your CCAI Platform instance a unique and descriptive name.

    • Region: Choose the geographical region where you want your instance to be deployed.

    • Domain Prefix: This is the subdomain that will be used for your CCAI Platform instance’s URL (e.g., “yourcompany.region.CCAI”).

    • Instance Size: Select the appropriate size based on your expectations. CCAI Platform uses “shirt sizes” (Small (up to 250 agents), Medium (up to 1,600 agents), Large (up to 3,800 agents) and so on) to indicate resource levels.

    • User Authentication: Decide whether you want to use email-based login or Single Sign-On (SSO) via SAML for your users.

5. Review and Create: Double-check your settings and click “Create” to start the instance creation process. 

Once you click “Create,” the instance creation process will begin. This typically takes about an hour, but it can sometimes take longer depending on various factors. You’ll receive a confirmation email when your CCAI Platform instance is ready, providing you with the necessary information to access your new contact center platform.

Step 2: Accessing the CCAI Platform 

After you’ve successfully created your CCAI Platform instance, it’s time to access the platform and start exploring its capabilities. 

  1. Welcome Email: After creating your account, you’ll receive a welcome email with a link to access your CCAI Platform dashboard.

  2. Login: Click the link and use your Google account credentials to log in.

Once you’ve successfully logged in, you’ll be greeted by the CCAI Platform dashboard, your central hub for managing your contact center. This is where you’ll monitor activity, access reports, and configure settings to optimize your customer interactions.
