How Automation and Knowledge Management will be powering the smartest Virtual Agents
You might have gotten away with a scripted Chatbot in 2019, but it’s 2020 and it’s no longer about getting ahead of the curve, it’s about not being left behind in the dust. Yes, the scripted chatbot was less expensive and easy to build and deploy, but that short term investment doesn’t scale and it won’t drive end-user/customer loyalty or satisfaction. AI in NLP Automation and Knowledge Management are enabling virtual agents to truly become digital labor for the business. These technologies together are transforming and harnessing intelligent conversations that have the right context, the right answers and the right actions to satisfy the service and support request.
We’ll discuss the following:
* What’s the difference again? Scripted Chatbot vs Intelligent Chatbot/Virtual Agent, deep-dive comparison
* Why Digital Labor has most of the same analogies and where it can be leveraged to do more with less when paired with the appropriate processes.
* Real-world examples, use cases and success stories that are using Intelligent Chatbots now.
...That Can Keep Up With The “Always On” High-Tech World We Live In.
Technology has changed our lives dramatically. Everyone is connected to a device and the internet, so the expectations are high when it comes to finding what you want, on-demand, at any time. The pressure is mounting and IT Service Desks are finding it hard to achieve customer satisfaction. The people they are servicing want a streamlined experience between the real world and the work world, and ITSM organizations are finding it hard to keep up due to processes and systems that are outdated and archaic.
Does this sound familiar?
* Can’t optimize the costs of a 24x7 service desk without compromising already tight budgets
* Low Customer Satisfaction scores (CSAT) due to poor Demand Management
* Burdensome and repetitive tasks consuming valuable time and energy
What’s a solution that is easy to implement, fast to adopt and cost-effective? We’ll discuss how AI, Automation and Text/Voice (especially if you are using an IVR) are taking Chatbots to the next “intelligent” level. We’ll discuss real-world use cases and present where this technology is today and the next phases of advancement. Most importantly, how you can use this technology immediately and become a change agent in your organization.

Self-service has been a key component of service desks for a decade but has yet to truly deliver the benefits that organizations were hoping for. Although self-service provides value for help desk teams, customers’ experiences often fall short of being satisfying. In fact, in a recent HDI survey, 71% of organizations say that improving customer experiences is a priority.
This webcast discusses how service management teams can enable better experiences by providing conversational approaches to issue resolution using virtual agents. Luma, an innovative virtual agent from Serviceaide, guides users to create actionable tickets, performs knowledge lookups and streamlines tasks such as password resets, amongst other capabilities. Best of all, Luma is available 24x7 to ensure customers get their issues resolved rapidly anywhere, at any time. Attend this webcast to see how virtual agents can improve customer self-service experiences.
Introducing Luma the Virtual Agent with Artificial Intelligence. Learn how organizations using ITSM software from CA Technologies can rapidly leverage this powerful capability without altering their current implementations. •You will see Luma in action, automating self-service, guiding users to create actionable tickets, performing knowledge lookups, and automating tasks such as reset password.

Artificial Intelligence has finally come to IT Service Management in the form of a Virtual Agent that can act as a Level-0 analyst. This webinar will explain how Luma, a virtual agent can perform the duties of a Level-0 technician, freeing organizations from the high cost of manning a help desk and providing round-the-clock support. You will see Luma in action, automating self-service, guiding users to create actionable tickets, performing knowledge lookups, and automating tasks such as reset password. Users stay informed of ticket status and can provide feedback whenever and wherever they are through the channel of your choice. Since a Level-0 tech should also unburden senior techs, you’ll see how Luma helps level-2 technicians improve their productivity by managing and assigning tickets, automatically following up with users, and enabling users to access and update ticket information without a human technician in the loop. Finally, see the no-coding tools available to create unique capabilities for your organization if the 200+ out of the box skills need to be extended.
Learn how to overcome the 5 most common frustrations and efficiency impediments. ServiceAide’s CTO William Guinn will describe how artificial intelligence and a virtual support agent integrated into our Cloud Service Management™ products will aid you to overcome them, as well as how you can lower your ticket volume, resolution time, ticket processing costs, and increase customer satisfaction and IT/support job satisfaction.

What is the difference between an Asset and a Configuration Item?
There is a lot of confusion as to what the difference is between an Asset and a Configuration Item (CI). When should a new object be an asset and when should it be a CI? In a lot of ways, they are alike, but there are some very important differences between them.
Presented by ServiceAide a provider of Cloud Service Management, a SaaS ITSM solution focused on Managed Service Providers and IT organizations.
Participate in our webinar, and we will show you how to implement a service catalog, how you will benefit from asset management and why your company needs service level agreements.
Asset Discovery & Asset Management provides value to you and your customers by expeditiously understanding and resolving issues by linking incidents and assets. This valuable information makes it straightforward to track what assets are in use, need updating, are problematic, or are a security risk.
A Service Catalog saves your technicians time by having service requests as a digital one click store front. End-users love and benefit from a single source for all their needs, a search mechanism allowing them to easily find what they need without frustration, and obtain immediate feedback and status updates.
Service Level Agreements prioritize your activities to ensure compliance. Give the tickets a voice let them automatically escalate when they are nearing an SLA breach. SLAs create automatic metrics that are used for analysis and reporting to highlight recurring issues and drive continuous improvement.
