What you get with Nuance Virtual Assistant
Integrate intelligent self-service into every AI-based customer experience journey.
Target customers with the right kind of engagement—automated or human-assisted—at the right time, with real‑time analysis of digital behavior, live agent availability, and historical information.
Nuance Virtual Assistant combines pre‑trained dialog with knowledge specific to your business and then learns from your live agents’ expertise to continuously improve its ability to handle customer inquiries.
Offer convenient, effective conversations that supports speech, text, and rich media messages —including carousels, forms, images, and videos - and the ability for agents to view these in the Agent Desktop.
On top of its pre‑loaded, generic NLU capabilities, Nuance Virtual Assistant offers multi-language support and industry‑specific packages trained to understand customer intents and terminology commonly used in retail, banking, telecommunications, and more.
When it doesn’t know the answer, or a customer requires additional support, Nuance Virtual Assistant seamlessly routes the inquiry to a live agent with the best skillset. And with Virtual Assistant Coach, agents can select the right customer intent when the virtual assistant gets stuck.
Allow customers to toggle seamlessly between channels without having to repeat themselves. Whether customers are switching from an IVR to text messaging, or an automated platform to a human‑assisted conversation, context always follows.
Provide the same experience on every channel, using Nuance Mix to design your virtual assistant once and deploy wherever you need it, including web, mobile, branded apps, and messaging channels. Offer customers seamless transitions between channels—and between virtual and human assistance—without losing context.
Use Nuance Mix tooling to build and share Natural Language Understanding (NLU) and dialog content across channels, reducing the time, effort, and cost of deploying omnichannel conversational experiences.
Gain complete visibility of self‑service and human-assisted interactions in every channel, allowing you to continuously optimize customer journeys, identify areas for improvement, and increase conversion and first contact resolution rates.
Our open, flexible framework allows you to seamlessly integrate with third‑party solutions like virtual assistants and CRM tools to streamline the customer experience and get more business value from your existing investments.
