Life insurer PNB Metlife has unveiled an Artificial Intelligence (AI)-powered customer service app ‘Khushi’. The app is designed to be a one-stop shop providing insurance-related information, anytime, anywhere, such as policy features, premium due details besides providing fund value and portfolio details. It has the ability to understand customer intent and provide tailored responses.
The app, which is available for Android phones, has been built by MetLife’s innovation center – Lumen Lab — in Singapore with PNB MetLife in India. Unveiling the app, managing director and CEO of PNB MetLife Ashish Srivastava said the AI-powered app would deliver enhanced customer experience.
Khushi can interact with customers via text as well as speech. When requested, the app can also locate the nearest PNB MetLife branch, arrange a call back from call center representatives, fix an appointment with an advisor and much more, according to the company.
In 2016, the company had launched ‘conVRse’, virtual reality (VR) service platform as well as ‘eBranch’, a paperless digital platform enabling real-time transfer of information. Going forward, PNB MetLife would upgrade Khushi to include other languages and IOS devices.
