A virtual customer assistant is a programming application that replicates human-like conversations to deliver information to customers, including text-based and speech-based engagements. The VCA adapts to the content and context of user inputs by combining natural-language processing and conversational artificial intelligence by updating its data repositories in real-time, providing sustained and strong customer value proposition, and enabling organizations to have an open channel to serve and communicate with their customers.

According to Kunal Pakhale, Analyst at Quadrant Knowledge Solutions, “The growing desire for automation in the service industry is boosting the usage of virtual customer assistants to provide an enhanced customer experience. To create a smooth customer experience, organizations are leveraging virtual customer assistants (VCA) that are capable of undertaking multiple customer service tasks, including navigating the website, delivering product information, helping customers pay bills, and routing customer service issue inquiries to human agents. These solutions are also increasingly being used for emerging use cases such as incorporating AI, ML, and workflow automation to enhance the productivity at contact centres since VCAs with AI/ML capabilities can deliver responses at a much faster rate. The inclusion of AI also enhances the implementation of security and compliance, better inter-departmental communication, and employee leave applications, examine reimbursement information, and keep a tab on working hours”.
