Breakdown of core features
SmartAction provides features that use conversational AI technology and natural language processing (NLP) to mimic live agent behavior.
Accounts and membership services
SmartAction’s AI-Powered Virtual Agents can be used for Authentication and Rewards. These AI-powered virtual agents use conversational AI to automate the routine conversations traditionally handled by live agents. The solution can automate accounts or membership calls and chats for conducting account authentication, capturing mailing information, and changing or updating personal information. Businesses can also utilize the feature for the creation of new accounts, password/pin reset, conducting credit checks, as well as managing loyalty rewards, memberships, and rewards claiming.
Billing and payments
The solution’s Omni-Bot™ feature helps organizations automate calls and chats related to billing and payments, including account crediting and refunds, balance inquiries, and charge descriptions. Organizations can also handle checking of payment status and credit card notifications through automation.
SmartAction’s Virtual Agents can handle outbound and inbound collections. The solution can help address contact center overhead for collection activities. It can collect payments through automated outbound calls and texts and increase collection rates.
Natural language intent capture and routing
The solution also uses virtual agents to welcome customers with a natural language greeting. Through natural language understanding (NLU), virtual agents are listening for various intents, depending on the business and customer data. With AI-powered virtual agents, there are no wait times for customers to be routed. SmartAction has a high routing accuracy rate, making virtual agents outperform live agents. The software’s Virtual Agents can greet and route, transfer, and handle account authentication.
