This handy tool needs a limited installation, enabling organizations to create their bots promptly with the hell of a graphic and a user-friendly interface. This gives them the capability to add the relevant FAQ Data, create order within topics and add natural language questions by employing slot filling and entities and skipping to essential queries.

To make sure that a business’s Power Virtual Agents chatbot can execute the necessary orders, it adds special conditions using Power Automate while connectors are linked to the back-end system. Moreover, a business can overlook the activities of their chatbots to assess their performance, helping them fine-tune the improvements and make the best out of the tool.

The Functionality of Power Virtual Agents 

A topic sets the route by which a chatbot conversation takes place in Power Virtual Agents. This is completely personalized and the users can go through a step-by-step process to formulate their brand’s bot by either using templates or making it from scratch.

Every topic has trigger phrases to help find solutions quickly. These can be keywords, terms, phrases, and queries that a person is likely to ask about that are associated with a particular issue. Next, conversation nodes define what a person creating the bot uses to define the way their chatbot responds.

To make sure that a Power Virtual Agents bot picks the right response, Artificial Intelligence employs Natural Language Processing to understand what a customer wants and delivers the most accurate node or trigger phrase to them.

One instance of the use case is the brand’s physical outlet’s opening times. A visitor can type the term “Open hours” into your chatbot. The AI will use this to match the predefined “Store hours” database. The bot then begins a conversation that enquires the location of the store that the customer wants to know about (if there are multiple stores) and then shows them the store timings.

Before the chatbot goes live, a company can try out the conversation using the ng the ‘Test bot’ option of Power Virtual Agents.
