A virtual agent is a contact centre capability that uses a virtual character, created through computer generation, animation and artificial intelligence (AI), to serve customers via chatbot functionality. The intelligent virtual agent can answer customer questions and provide information on a company’s products and services.
The term “virtual agent” also is used to refer to a human contact centre and call centre customer service agent who works from a remote location outside of the organisation’s physical building. Typically, virtual agents are dispersed geographically.
Contact centre virtualisation provides streamlined capabilities to enable the use of virtual agents — both AI tools and remote customer service representatives.
