their positions. Instead, our extensive study indicated that these
representatives considered Intelligent Virtual Assistants (IVAs) to be just as
crucial as receiving a competitive salary and working in a positive environment.
These findings highlight the significant role that IVAs play in enhancing the
efficiency and effectiveness of the contact center workforce.

Rather than displacing
representatives, IVAs serve as valuable tools that augment agents’ capabilities
and enable them to provide exceptional customer service while also reducing
