How to Cut Call Center Agent Onboarding Time in Half

Virtual Agent

A virtual agent is software that understands you and helps you. Virtual agents come in many flavors, and they go by many names.

You can find digital assistants on websites and mobile apps. They play the role of online concierge, answering your questions and directing you to the help you need.

Google Assistant, Alexa, Siri and Cortana are all personal digital assistants you find on your smart devices.

Did you call your bank or communication service provider recently? Then, you have spoken to a virtual customer assistant. These virtual agents try to understand who you are and what you need, so that they may answer questions right away and direct you to a human who can assist further.

Some of your colleagues work in call centers. They often find themselves between a rock and a hard place. Employee Assist or Agent Assist is yet another virtual agent that helps your call center agents during challenging customer interactions.
