Let’s face it, your agents are handling too many repetitive, linear interactions that could be easily automated, and your customers are frustrated by the canned recordings provided by traditional Interactive Voice Response (IVR). What if you could expand self-service capabilities and greet your customers with a helpful and understanding voice? 

Find out how IVA (Intelligent Virtual Assistants) powered by advanced speech recognition and natural language processing can replace IVR’s “Press 1” with an intelligent “How can I help you today?” –making technology more human and enabling customers to self-serve common yet complex requests. Also discover how IVA can intelligently route customers when necessary to an expert agent armed with all the imperative information to reduce handle time and create a seamless experience.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • The cooperative relationship between IVA and agent

  • Why positioning IVAs at the first touch of a customer interaction is more beneficial than hiding them behind an IVR

  • How IVAs can now navigate complex, multi-turn conversations allowing them to handle more complex issues, then routing exceptions to agents

  • How the intelligence-gathering capability of IVA arms your agents with more knowledge to better handling times and the overall customer experience

  • How brands like AAA, Fabletics, DSW, and Electrolux have deployed more robust IVAs to empower their customers and agents alike and the positive results they’ve seen
