Frequently Asked Questions
An intelligent virtual agent (IVA) is typically software that uses scripted rules and artificial intelligence technology to provide automated guidance to customers. It interacts with people to provide online customer service or self-help functionality. AI technology enables virtual assistants to deal with people in a human way.
It all comes down to an improved customer experience which results in happier customers and a reduction in churn. An intelligent virtual assistant leverages text to speech, automatic speech recognition, and natural language processing (NLP) capabilities to make it easier for businesses and their customers to interact with the system.
Furthermore, intelligent virtual agents can automate highly repetitive tasks and mundane requests using AI chatbots, which can reduce wait times and increase operational efficiency. This allows the human staff to focus on managing more complex and sensitive customer issues. It also allows some support for customers at times when live agents are not available.
While the use cases are varied, here are a few examples of automated functions an intelligent virtual agent can assist an organisation with:
- Self-service password reset
- Basic IT requests and troubleshooting
- Assistance on configuration requests such as ‘how do I…’
- Customer queries (live chat conversational AI)
- Managing frequently asked questions
Intelligent virtual agents are more advanced than regular chatbots and can engage with a customer in a way that mimics human behaviour. They also feature machine learning capabilities meaning they can adapt their approach based on past experiences thereby further improving the customer engagement.
