AI-Powered Virtual Agents for Registering Products, Warranties, and More

5 Best Practices for AI-Self-Service Without Compromise

What Are Virtual Agents for Product Registration & Warranty?

AI-powered virtual agents use conversational AI to automate the routine conversations traditionally handled by live agents. With SmartAction’s Omni-Bot™ feature, organizations typically start in voice, where the ROI is the greatest, then scale the same experience to chat or text for a complete omnichannel self-service strategy.

Product registrations are multi-turn conversations that are too complex for traditional IVR, but tedious and repetitive for live agents. Offload these routine calls and chats from customer service reps to AI-powered virtual agents. By seamlessly integrating with your CRM or ERP, virtual agents use natural language processing (NLP) to help customers register their products up to 30% faster than with a live agent.

What is the Customer Experience Like with a Virtual Agent?
  • Scenario 1: Product Registration

    To celebrate her first paycheck at her new job as a project manager, Lauren just bought a new TV. The store clerk recommended that she call the manufacturer to register the device, in case she ever needs to get it serviced. These calls can be challenging for some self-service systems, but watch to see how SmartAction virtual agents make this process less hard for Lauren.

  • Scenario 2: Warranty Details

    Jake has had the same mobile phone for just over a year – a long time by today’s standards. He dropped it getting out of his car this morning, and the screen cracked. It isn’t a huge crack, but it gets Jake thinking about a potential upgrade. Before he shells out for a new phone, however, Jake decides to give a call to his phone’s warranty number to see if he can replace it for free. Listen in as an AI-powered virtual agent fully contains the call and provides Jake with a quick and easy experience.

  • Customer

    712-299-1585

  • Virtual Agent

    Got it. Do you have the serial number handy?

  • Customer

    R as in Robert, 8, 7, 6, Z as in Zebra, 6, 5, 8, H, Z as in Zebra.

    Alphanumeric capture.

  • Virtual Agent

    I’ve matched that serial number to a PowerSound 2.0 Bluetooth speaker. Is that correct?

    Virtual agents are jacked-in to database in order to properly identify products by serial number.

  • Customer

    Yes.

    If the customer said “No,” business rules would guide the virtual agent to transfer to a live agent to preserve the CX.

  • Virtual Agent

    Great. Please tell me where you purchased the speaker, such as Best Buy or Target.

    Examples will give the caller context about what kind of response to give, which improves containment.

  • Customer

    Best Buy.

  • Virtual Agent

    And what was your date of purchase?

    Date capture is a pre-built component in the AI “brain,” so we don’t have to train the system to handle this question for each new application.

  • Customer

    Three days ago.

    Natural language intent capture.

  • Virtual Agent

    To confirm, you bought it on December 12th, 2019. Correct?

    AI-powered virtual agents have advanced cognitive abilities to do something intelligent with what was said.

  • Customer

    Yes.

  • Virtual Agent

    Great. Your registration is all set. Is that all for today?

    Virtual agents can complete data gathering calls in up to half the time it takes live agents.
