NEW DELHI: Zee Group’s Dish TV, which has sprung into action over the past few weeks to protect its status as Asia's largest direct-to-home platform, has now launched an Advanced DishTV interface’ (ADI). ADI world’s first AI-enabled pay-tv chatbot to enhance customer experience and offer a user-friendly interface.

The move comes even as the ministry of information and broadcasting is insisting on complaint redressal system following a Supreme Court judgment earlier this year.

Built for redressal and service lifecycle management, ADI provides a virtual interface that acts as a one stop solution window to subscribers, and guides them instantly to address their queries. It is an Omni-channel interface with customer experience as a core tenet, strengthening DishTV’s position as an innovator in the DTH space. It can enable quick recharges and answer millions of customer queries across multiple channels instantly.

It is designed to process user requests, powered by deep analytics and its artificial intelligence engine. It enhances customer service through personalized and immediate answers that are available 24x7 and are constantly evolving to become more relevant and accurate for the users. Users converse with ADI in a personal setting, just like they would with family/friends.

According to Dish TV, it provides a landscape to move from personalization to individualization at massive scale, harnessing the power of big data.

Dish TV group CEO Anil Dua said, “Relevance in the digital age requires connecting with customers across multiple channels while maintaining the information accuracy along with ease of interaction. With the launch of ‘ADI’, customers can get information on our products and services instantaneously and will be able to recharge, troubleshoot or order a connection on the go. ADI will also encourage those customers who may not be very comfortable navigating the traditional web space. With digital platforms gaining popularity across industries, ADI will enable us to reach out to a wide spectrum of customers, and serve them better with both speed and accuracy.”

ADI appears as a pop-up feature on the website and introduces itself as “Adi, your DishTV virtual assistant." One can initiate a conversation by simply entering a message that transforms into rich personalized experience, delivering real-time responses, timely and pertinent to one’s DishTV account. It gives solutions to problems concerning recharge offers, current balance, add-on service upgrades, or any other glitches like unsubscribed channel or lost signals or Smart Card related issues. All the subscriber needs is an 11-digit VC number or one’s registered mobile number, and the rest will be taken care of.”

ADI is available on desktop and mobile platforms currently and would soon be available on other platforms like Facebook and Twitter. It is a step towards true engagement with customers that goes beyond mere “clicks”, and helps them cut through the clutter to view offerings relevant to them. It also relieves the customers from the effort of calling the customer care or visiting the dealer stores for recharges.
