A great customer experience should make your customers’ lives easier. But when you’re managing multiple services for each customer — whether it’s phone, internet, or cable — providing a seamless, personalized experience across channels can be a challenge. That’s why Interactions Intelligent Virtual Assistants enable you to provide efficient and effective self-service that’s available 24/7 and offers quick resolutions. So your customers can pick up where they left off, and your agents are freed up to handle more complex or sensitive customer issues.
AI can be used by telecom service providers to elevate customer experience at scale. From service and plan management to technical support, AI, specifically Conversational AI, can be used to deliver human-like conversations between the telecom company and their customers. Because AI can handle an unlimited volume of calls, customers will never have to wait to speak with an agent, but they will still receive top-notch customer service.
With the ability to seamlessly integrate into existing business systems, Conversational AI can also provide a personalized experience for customers so they do not have to repeat information that is already known by the company. This personalization also supports the ability to deliver proactive alerts about payment, product usage, and promotional offers.
Conversational AI can be used in telecommunications to provide consistent, quality customer service at scale. For example, with an Interactions Intelligent Virtual Assistant (IVA) powered by Conversational AI, customers can interact with the IVA just as they would a human.
This allows for an unlimited volume of calls to be handled, without increasing the need for more full-time agents. This is particularly useful to help handle seasonal volume demands or unpredictable volume increases.
However, there is always going to be a time in customer care when an actual human is needed to assist the customer. In this case, AI can be used to provide a seamless transition to a live agent so that the customer does not have to repeat any information that they have already said to the IVA.
AI can be used in telecom customer service to not only provide excellent customer care for customers, but also deliver extraordinary financial benefits to businesses.
The service for customers starts with providing effortless and productive conversations at scale. This means when a customer calls about a billing question or to update their phone plan, they will not have to wait on hold because the AI application can handle unlimited volume of calls. And once the customer is conversing with the AI application, they will not have to repeat any information or “robot speak” in order to be understood. This allows for telecom companies to deliver human-like customer service interactions at scale.
Using AI can also result in financial benefits for telecommunications businesses. First off, by providing a better customer experience, companies will create more loyal customers and more customer retention. Secondly, with its ability to handle an unlimited number of calls, an AI customer service application prevents the need to hire additional agents to handle extra call volume during peak seasons.
And lastly, with an advanced Conversational AI application such as an Intelligent Virtual Assistant (IVA), agent value increases because the IVA is able to handle all of the mundane and routine tasks. Then, only the more complicated issues that require the assistance of a live representative are passed on to the agent. This increase in agent value and productivity in turn decreases agent churn.

While artificial intelligence is changing our world in ways we never thought possible, but it also has somewhat of a creepy reputation. Many companies struggle to find the line between what consumers find creepy and what they find helpful, which makes it hard to implement AI in a beneficial way.
Lower levels of customer effort have shown to increase customer satisfaction, brand loyalty and revenue opportunities. Are your customers satisfied with the path you put them on or do they see it more like navigating a maze?
