eGain Virtual Assistant is a conversational virtual agent providing customers with answers and assistance on a website. A user chats with the virtual assistant in natural language. It acts like a guide, helping customers navigate the website and taking them to the relevant place. The chatbot also provides answers to queries, even helping in shopping decisions.

eGain Virtual Assistant also provides context-aware escalation to agent-assisted channels. It includes out-of-the-box avatars, multilingual natural language processing, a knowledge base, and analytics for continuous improvement. Besides answering questions, it can push relevant web pages and take customers on website tours. It supports text-to-text, text-to-speech, speech-to-text, and speech-to-speech communication modes, and is embeddable in apps and social networks.
