In the contact center, where agents are often juggling high workloads and complex customer inquiries under pressure, knowledge is power. Agents with the most knowledge are inevitably more productive, and at Dialpad we believe higher agent productivity drives customer satisfaction.

Today, we’re thrilled to announce Ai Agent Assist, a next-generation virtual assistant for contact center agents that puts knowledge at their fingertips.

By harnessing the power of Dialpad's advanced semantic search capabilities coupled with the latest advances in Generative AI (specifically with large language models), Ai Agent Assist delivers on-demand, natural answers to agent questions so they can offer faster, more effective service. This translates into shorter resolution times, more productive agents, and improved customer satisfaction.

Ai Agent Assist also offers out-of-the-box productivity and is ready to deploy immediately after you connect your knowledge base, with no coding required.

An invaluable addition to any contact center, this is the 9th offering in Dialpad’s 12 Months of Ai product series.

Ai Agent Assist: What is it?

The best way to describe Ai Agent Assist is instant answers to your questions. Training contact center agents is difficult, and many agents are thrown onto the phones without knowing where to find important information on products or processes. Because information is spread across multiple systems and is hard to find, agents rely on managers or coworkers to gather information. This delays and lengthens calls and ultimately damages the customer experience.

Dialpad’s Ai Agent Assist empowers agents with the right answers when they need them most, by using Ai to understand each question, pull the answer from the right place, and deliver it to agents in natural language:

This means you can put agents on the phones faster without damaging the customer experience, trusting the Ai to help agents answer questions faster and improve customer satisfaction.

Ai Agent Assist also offers the flexibility to build custom responses for cases where you want total control over the agent experience:
