Large enterprises are expected to remain the largest end-use segment of the intelligent virtual assistant market by 2020. They stand to benefit to a great extent through the deployment of virtual assistants, since they are capable of handling a considerable percentage of customer interactions. Since they also help improve the enterprise’s mobile customer service experience, a growing number of large enterprises have adopted intelligent virtual assistant technology to deliver critical cost savings and new revenue opportunities.
