Advantages of Digital Advisor

Using AI-generated avatars equipped with synchronised speech and facial expressions, the Digital Advisor provides customers with engaging and tailored interactions. The Digital Advisor not only caters to individual customer needs but also frees up store staff from repetitive tasks, thereby improving overall efficiency, the company said.

Commenting on the announcement, Rostelecom said, "Artificial intelligence is increasingly used in business and is becoming a real assistant for people. The introduction of AI in retail for Rostelecom will be a very interesting and important experience - this promising industry from the point of view of digitalisation still focuses on the person and their needs, and at the same time, with the help of technology, creates unique business models."

Personalised Recommendations

Explaining the advantage of Digital Advisor, Rostelecom said the solution will be able to provide personalised service without the involvement of employees and the cost of their training. Additionally, AI minimises the risks of human error, ensuring consistent adherence to sales practices.

In the future, the solution (Advisor) will be able to recommend products based on the preferences and purchase history of a particular client, thanks to integration with the network's loyalty system.
