Having the right Natural Language Understanding (NLU) – is the difference of your customer staying on the call or hanging up. Whether you get that call retention or not. If your solution is not understanding what the customer is saying, then ultimately the accuracy rate will be low, and the response to the customer will not make sense. So why would they want to use this type of self-service, if it adds even more frustration than holding for a human agent? Ensuring a customer is accurately understood and that a call is routed efficiently, is a crucial, complicated part of the call automation process.


The machine will be learning at scale in the background, from every single customer interaction. But human conversations are very complicated. Most people don’t just make a request, they often dart from subject to subject, or they add in additional information that is not relevant to the actual outcome. For example, what if a customer has lost their password, and they start explaining their story about why they have lost their password. Additional considerations include the language spoken, dialect, the intonation and tone of voice. Also, what about context? Language is merely separate words and grammar, you need to have the context surrounding these words. When we multiply these factors with thousands of calls a day, and we add on top of these differences industry specific terms too. That is a lot of correct information and also a lot of extra information that needs to be screened too. How does a machine work like a human brain but at enterprise scale – and receive, interpret, select, ignore and then respond? It’s extremely important that the NLU you work with is highly developed and very specific to call centers and different languages.

Use Cases: Helping your customers to self-serve with virtual assistants

The most common AI use case for contact centers is customer
self-service through virtual assistants. Contact centers that are
AI-enabled can transition from a pre-scripted chatbot to a robust
conversational AI platform, that intelligently understands users’
intents and gets things done quickly. Conversational AI powered by Natural Language Understanding (NLU) can evaluate the most relevant intent and answer the query while handling various terminologies, dialects, accents, speaking styles and spelling errors.
