To support its continuous learning initiatives amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the Upper Grand District School Board launched an online learning program for its 35,000 student base that was isolated at home. However, with many parents and students new to distance learning, Upper Grand administration was inundated with an unprecedented number of inquiries for reliable information pertaining to online safety and technical support.
To effectively respond to the large influx of queries, Upper Grand partnered with Quantiphi to develop a Rapid Response Virtual Agent capable of providing quality, round-the-clock support. The bot handled 3,000 queries within the first week of implementation, creating a positive experience for students and parents and significantly reducing the workload of administrative staff.
Quantiphi integrated the virtual agent with Upper Grand’s existing website as well as a content management system, Google Sheets, for easy update and modification of intent responses. The agent handles 1,000 queries per day and is trained to handle 20 distinct FAQs.
