About the virtual coach
The Virtual Coach is launched as new functionality on Efecte's platform and serves to support service agents by suggesting how they should handle new issues based on previous customer interactions. The Virtual Coach uses NLP (Natural Language Processing) understand, analyze, and make suggestions based on this information, to identify known solutions and suggest similar issues.
“The implementation of Efecte’s Virtual Coach is a continuation of our strategy to assist humans rather than replace them. The similar issues assistance is the first AI-capability targeted at support agents as we continue to work on further AI-powered enhancements during 2021”, says Schneider.
