  3. Capture information more effectively and securely: Virtual agents can be used to attend those calls where information has to be captured more effectively such as credit card payments etc.
  4. Improve customer satisfaction: The virtual agents are powered to use short-term memory to keep track of the prior conversations and long-term memory to track the callers and their preferences. This capacity will make them prepare for different needs of customers and increase customer satisfaction by providing personalized customer service.
  5. Reduce operational cost: Automation of various calls will reduce the operational cost. The virtual agents need not be trained like human beings every time. In addition to this, their call completion time is low.
