Panama City, Panama / Toronto, Ontario, Apr 10, 2012 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) --
IntelliResponse Systems, providers of the patented IntelliResponse Answer Suite, a multi-channel web self-service software platform that delivers answers to customer and service agent questions, and Copa Airlines, the fastest growing airline in Latin America and recipient of the 2011 World Travel Awards for "World's Leading Airline to Central America & Mexico," are pleased to announce the successful launch of "Ask Ana" - a web self-service, virtual agent technology solution.
Powered by the IntelliResponse Answer Suite, Ask Ana ensures that the online customer experience delivered by Copa Airlines is both enjoyable and rewarding, enabling customers and visitors to http://www.copa.com to type in a question using everyday natural language. Users get a single, accurate and approved answer to their questions, the very first time, along with a short list of helpful, related questions. Users also have the ability to view a dynamic list of the top ten questions based on previous question patterns.
Prior to selecting IntelliResponse, Copa Airlines was looking for ways to improve online customer experience and to consolidate the web as the number one source of knowledge for its customers. Copa Airlines prides itself on providing the highest level of service to customers who fly on its more than 290 daily scheduled flights to 64 destinations in 29 countries in North, Central, and South America, and the Caribbean. Since its implementation in November 2011, Ask Ana has managed to steadily redirect general inquiries and questions towards this new and enhanced web self-service option, improving the online experience and allowing service agents to focus on high value customer interactions.
"The feedback we've received, both internally and externally, about Ask Ana has been very positive, and our customers love using Ask Ana to help them get answers to their commonly asked questions," explains Diego Quesada, eBusiness Director of Copa Airlines. "The staff at IntelliResponse were professional, knowledgeable, and very helpful in getting us live with Ask Ana. In addition to our current English version of Ask Ana, we are excited about adding support for both Spanish and Portuguese in the very near future."
"We're pleased that Copa Airlines has selected the IntelliResponse Answer Suite," said Mike Hennessy, Vice President, Marketing at IntelliResponse. "All the research we've seen points to the customer's desire to be able to self-serve on a company's website, and Copa Airlines is listening to their customers and providing the necessary tools to ensure a great online experience."
