LivePerson updates Conversation Assist to boost agents with real-time AI recommendations





Improved recommendation engine for content and bots puts conversational AI
work for agents, save time and improve chat results

NEW YORK, April 8, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — LivePerson, Inc.. (Nasdaq: LPSN), a global leader in conversational AI, today announced significant upgrades to its Conversation Assist capabilities, which provide agents with real-time AI-powered recommendations for inserting content and bots directly into customer conversations with a single click.

Conversation Assist Arming Agents with the right answers and AI support to help customers get help or purchase products.

Conversation Assist instantly arms agents with the right answers and AI support to help customers get help or purchase products. It analyzes each message from a customer to determine if a recommendation can help resolve their intent, then presents relevant content and automations directly inline in the chat in the agent workspace. Agents can then send recommended replies immediately or delegate tasks to recommended bots.

With Conversation Assist, agents stay in full control of delivering the best customer experiences. They can easily personalize any recommended text before sending it, as well as remove bots from conversations if needed.

New enhancements to the Conversation Assist recommendation engine include:

  • The ability to leverage multiple sources of recommendations at once, including a brand’s knowledge base, automations created through LivePerson’s Conversation Builder, and bots from third-party platforms such as DialogFlow and Watson.

  • An intuitive interface presenting multiple in-line recommendations in the conversation, allowing agents to select the best one for the job.

  • An easy-to-use dashboard of rich analytics, allowing brands to continuously monitor and improve recommendation performance and agent engagement.

Conversation Assist generates meaningful results for consumers, agents and brands, including:

  • Improved consumer sentiment

  • Reduced agent handle time and response time

  • Increase in the number of simultaneous conversations with agents

  • Reduced time to onboard new agents

  • Revenue increase

A leading UK telecommunications brand uses Conversation Assist to increase the efficiency and accuracy of sales conversation compliance. By leveraging more than 15,000 bot referrals per month, the brand achieved productivity savings estimated at 5 minutes per conversation, as well as reducing agent handle time by 13.5%, while increasing sales.

“LivePerson’s conversational AI helps brands better understand customer intent, connect across channels, and deliver meaningful results. Powered by our natural-touch AI, Conversation Assist’s enhanced recommendation engine helps balance the effectiveness of bots and the human touch of a brand’s agents to provide consumers with even more effective and useful conversations,” said Rob LoCasciofounder and CEO of LivePerson.
