NICE Introduces NEVA, The World’s First Robotic Virtual Attendant for Employees, Delivering Intelligent, Real-Time Support Across the Enterprise

HOBOKEN, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

NICE (NICE) today took customer service to a new level of cognitive intelligence via the launch of NICE Employee Virtual Attendant or NEVA, the world's first virtual attendant, designed with the employee in mind. Powered by NICE’s proven, market leading Desktop Automation technology, NEVA offers real-time process guidance when called for or automatically when an opportunity is identified. This enables employees to efficiently execute even the most complex requests as well as upsell or cross sell at the most optimal time within an interaction, driving front and back-office process effectiveness, boosting sales delivery and ensuring compliance adherence while increasing employee engagement and morale.

This latest innovation in NICE Robotic Process Automation and virtual attendant technology, NEVA personifies how human and robotic workforces can collaboratively work together, reshaping the capabilities of global enterprises to achieve unprecedented levels of operational efficiency and service delivery success.

Transforming Requests into Actions Using NEVA's Intelligent Decisioning Engine
NEVA's intuitive human-like interface invites employees to request assistance and ask questions via voice or text chat, when needed. Employees can ask NEVA to execute a process or display contextual process guidance as and when they need it. NEVA's intelligent decisioning engine will translate the request into structured workflow actions and execute on behalf of the employee by interacting with desktop systems. By extracting underlying data from back-end systems or pulling together a script guiding the employee with the next best actions at the opportune time, NEVA closes the loop on every interaction and helps employees attain their desired goals and KPI’s.

On the Job Training and Compliance Adherence Through Process Guidance
With NEVA, new employees receive on the job training via step by step process guidance, minimizing cumbersome and time intensive classroom training sessions. In addition, by reminding employees to follow policy-based processes, such as reading a required disclaimer, checking a required box, or completing a step in the process, NICE's innovative robotic virtual attendant drives compliance.

Based on the NICE Robotic Process Automation (RPA) platform which was recently named a "Leader" in Everest Group's RPA Products PEAK Matrix™ 2018, NEVA also implements routine and repetitive tasks for the human workforce in a customer service workflow much faster, more accurately and with complete adherence to company policies. The result is higher productivity, improved process accuracy and increased customer satisfaction. The innovative, new robotic virtual attendant by NICE is fully customizable and easy to deploy, and has the most robust and advanced connectivity capabilities that integrate with any enterprise or third-party application.

Amardeep Modi, Practice Director, Everest Group said “NICE Robotic Process Automation achieved high scores on both 'Vision and Capability' as well as 'Market Impact' and emerged as a Leader in Everest Group's RPA Products PEAK Matrix™ 2018. It is also awarded a “Star Performer” title owing to strong year-over-year movement across both dimensions. The depth and scope of NICE’s RPA product capability contributed greatly towards them being a Leader.”
