What is an Intelligent Virtual Assistant?

An Intelligent Virtual Assistant, or IVA, provides modernized customer care that’s not just conversational, but also personal. With Interactions IVAs, powered by Conversational AI, customers can speak naturally just as they would with a human, reducing the frustration commonly associated with typical automated solutions. Even with background noise, accents, and poor connections, Interactions IVAs can still accurately hear what customers are saying.

Our IVAs utilize Adaptive Understanding technology, which seamlessly blends artificial intelligence and human understanding, and allows us to deliver human-like experiences across all customer care channels. Therefore, customers will never have to alter the way they talk or type to interact with Interactions IVAs.

We use machine learning capabilities to improve responses in our technology loop for continuous improvement, allowing for more productive and consistent conversations. The result? Our IVAs become smarter in the process with the ability to handle more complex transactions.

What’s different about the Interactions IVA?

Interactions has more than 15 years of delivering Conversational AI solutions to support customer care. But beyond our long track record of success, our IVAs are powered by Conversational AI and Adaptive Understanding.

We differentiate our solution through our Adaptive Understanding technology which seamlessly combines artificial intelligence (AI) and human understanding, allowing automation wherever possible, and human assistance wherever necessary. This occurs in real-time and in the background, so customers never experience a delay in the conversation. This guarantees that your customers experience effortless and productive interactions every time and can result in improved CSAT.

Our Conversational AI Engine includes: Automated Speech Recognition (ASR), Natural Language Processing (NLP), Text to Speech (TTS), Dialogue Management, Voice Biometrics, and Machine Learning. We’ve improved these technologies over decades and innovated to meet the specific challenges associated with customer care.
Our omnichannel approach provides a consistent customer experience across all customer care channels. With Interactions IVA solution, customers never have to repeat information as they switch between channels and can easily continue a conversation if they have to pause or come back to it.

Interactions IVA is a fully managed solution and is hosted on a cloud-based platform across multiple data centers to ensure 24/7 uptime. And, our success based pricing model means that customers only pay for successful transactions. Put simply, we only charge when customers get value from the IVA.

How do companies use IVAs?

Companies use IVAs to speak the language of their brand and to communicate effortlessly with their customers. An IVA is often the only bi-directional communication that customers receive from a brand, and using an IVA ensures a consistent experience every time. Companies use IVAs to help determine simple things like intent, but they can also be leveraged to understand any brand specific jargon or keywords that your customers might use in their natural speech. All of this provides companies with the ability to automate without sacrificing personalization.

Interactions IVAs are a fully managed solution. They can seamlessly integrate with any technology stack—even homegrown systems—making implementation easy. IVAs can help companies offer enhanced customer personalization through integration with CRM, POS, loyalty programs, and more. All of our applications are designed in a customer-centric approach, with multiple modes of communication, and around-the clock care.

What are some examples of effective IVAs?

IVAs are perfect for customer-obsessed companies—those who want to make sure their customers feel satisfied with their interactions, everytime. IVAs are effective across any vertical, including Financial Services, Insurance, Healthcare, Retail, Travel and Hospitality, Food Services, and Utilities. The common denominator is a focus on innovation, automation, and first-class customer service.
