Frequently Asked Questions

What is an Intelligent Virtual Agent (IVA)?

An Intelligent Virtual Agent/Assistant, is designed to engage in conversations with callers, providing information, assistance, or performing specific tasks.

What are the benefits of using virtual agents?

Benefits include 24/7 availability, quick response times, cost savings in customer service operations, handling routine queries, and freeing up human agents to focus on more complex tasks.

How do Intelligent Virtual Agents work?

Virtual agents use natural language processing and artificial intelligence to understand callers and generate responses. These can be programmed to follow scripts or learn to improve given more interactions.

Can IVA handle PCI compliant secure payments?

Absolutely! Capture payment information in the system so live agents can complete intelligent jobs and billing stays secure.

What’s the difference between an IVA and a chatbot?

Chatbots are relatively simple and typically used to answer basic questions or provide links to relevant information. They follow pre-programmed rules and cannot understand the context of a conversation. In addition, a simple chatbot can, at most, offer pertinent articles from a knowledge source.

Virtual agents are more sophisticated, using AI technology and natural language understanding (NLU) to simulate human speech, understand customer intent, answer real-time queries, better grasp user language, and offer more personalized responses. You can also ask follow-up questions and forward chats to human agents if necessary.

How hard is it to set up?

Nextiva offers a simplified, no-code platform for easy setup. Choose from predefined templates or effortlessly design custom workflows with a simple drag-and-drop experience. We also offer white-glove professional services, so talk with our sales team about your desired outcome.
