Implementing an Intelligent Virtual Assistant for a conversational channel
Provide users with the ability to interact with your application by getting answers to simple questions and completing complex work, without having to engage with or wait for a human agent. Pega Intelligent Virtual Assistant™ (IVA), which you design in the system, interacts with users in a simple question and answer form by sending text messages, and by using artificial intelligence, natural language processing (NLP), and your existing Pega Platform case processing.The convenience of this chat functionality is available across multiple messaging platforms and ensures that you instantly provide essential business services to users in a consistent way. For example, users can quickly request information about their account or even update the account directly by interacting with your chatbot in Apple Messages for Business, Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, and other messaging platforms.
IVAs for Unified Messaging and Web Chatbot include a built-in preview console. You use the preview console to test the chatbot during the design phase, before moving the bot to a production environment. You test and configure your chatbot on the same page. You can also train machine learning models to recognize the way in which your customers communicate with you, without any data science expertise or a single line of code.
