In the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak, the customer, one of the largest U.S. financial services companies, began issuing a prepaid debit card to eligible customers at the request of the state agency for providing benefits to citizens. However, their contact centers began experiencing high call volumes with queries related to the benefits card. As a result, a large number of conversations were put on hold or dropped due to long wait times. In addition, there was a lack of consistent responses from their human agents due to the rapidly evolving COVID-19 situation.
Quantiphi developed and deployed two virtual agents on two of the client’s websites trained on 100+ custom intents in just six weeks, responding to queries related to client’s retail services, benefits card offering, and stimulus packages provided by the state and federal government amid COVID-19. The virtual agents were also integrated with the client’s internal content management system for easy update and modification of intent responses by their staff and Subject Matter Experts (SMEs). The virtual agents effectively handled over 500 thousand interactions within the first 45 days of launch.
