An AI-powered Virtual Agent With Accuracy and Agility

With SmartAction’s conversational AI technology tailored for automotive, essential vehicle information is captured with the highest degree of accuracy. By using advanced NLU techniques that pattern-match what a customer says against intents that are specific to the automotive sector, our virtual agents are able to understand and resolve your customers’ auto-related issues quickly and seamlessly.
In the real-world call, the stranded driver states his vehicle make and model, but the speech-to-text engine transcribes it as “Aboard to fifty truck.” SmartAction’s proprietary NLU catches the mistake and corrects it to what the caller intended, “Ford F-250 truck.”

ROI by the Numbers

Auto manufacturers and service providers achieve cost savings, a CSAT score on par with live agents, and high success on appointment confirmations by using SmartAction’s conversational AI solution.
