Intelligent Voice Automation (IVA®)

SmartAction takes the dull, frustrating call center Interactive Voice Response (IVR) and makes it productive again with the use of 100% Natural Language Processing and Artificial Intelligence. The system allows users to easily complete many complex, but repeatable, customer service requests that would normally be handled by a live agent.

Customer Completes Call with Intelligent Virtual Assistant

Use IVA® to Deliver Value

  • Conversational: Put “butts in seats” without hiring or staffing up because IVA® can handle requests that live agents are typically needed for, meaning fewer callers on hold and frustrated.
  • Proactive: Reduce customer effort with more proactive and effective processes, including outbound calls with dynamic capabilities.
  • ROI: Realize ROI faster because we go live in three months or less. Then, build on it as we enhance and tune the system.
  • Reimagine: Begin to transform your contact center in preparation for the future of customer service.
