IN A NUTSHELL – WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO

Moreover, the smart voice assistant of virtualQ provides answers to frequently asked questions. Thereby, the virtualQ enterprise software creates an unique customer experience, which is currently turning the service industry upside down. On the company´s side the smart virtualQ algorithms enable Customer Service Centers to manage their incoming calls automatically and more efficiently.
