Getting Help Just Got Easier

Barista, our virtual support agent (VSA), brings the ease of consumer virtual assistants, such as Alexa and Google Home, into the workplace, delivering a personalized user experience that maximizes employee adoption and reduces help desk call volume.

80 to 85%

Employee Adoption

Barista provides employees with immediate answers, proactively notifies them of outages or other important events, and continues to interact with them throughout the entire lifecycle of their requests. Barista also helps guide employees through complex processes with ease, such as new hire onboarding, password reset, vacation requests, and more.

50 to 70%

Reduced Call Volume

Barista enables help desk agents to focus on what matters most by automatically answering questions and resolving issues for employees. If Barista opens a case, it is prioritized and routed to the right team with context. When outages occur, Barista automates detection and notification, and categorizes outage related tickets to a parent. Barista also simplifies catalog creation.

Barista Case Management –
Why Should IT Have All the Fun?

Chances are IT has an IT service management (ITSM) tool that works for them but is too expensive and complex to deploy across the enterprise. Barista Case Management is an easy but powerful way for internal service providers such as HR, Payroll, Facilities, and Sales Operations to improve the experience and quality of support that they offer to employees.

With Barista, IT can keep using their tool, while the rest of the enterprise can use Barista Case Management. Barista is smart and can predict which team can handle a given request, so employees no longer need to guess which team can help. Barista does that for them.

Employee Language Cloud

Unlike competitors who provide a toolkit for building dialogue trees that require AI experts and linguists to develop, Barista comes out of the box with an Employee Language Cloud that includes an extensive vocabulary tailored to the workplace so that Barista can speak the language of the employee from day one.

Barista is literally capable of understanding billions of phrases without any customer input and then learns on the fly with each and every employee experience to get even smarter over time. And because enterprises are global, Barista is multi-lingual so your help desk doesn’t need to be.

What’s in a Name?

Most parents struggle with naming their babies. That wasn’t the case with Barista. We knew that Barista was going to completely redefine how employees get help, and that reminded us of something.

Remember when getting coffee meant going to the diner and getting to choose between black or with cream? Those were the choices. No matter what you wanted, you didn’t get any better than that.

Then baristas came along and changed everything! A good barista gives a personalized experience to every customer by remembering who they are and even anticipating what they might need. The result is an amazing espresso or café latte. Espressive Barista strives to give employees that same level of personalized attention so that our Barista can give them exactly what they came looking for. That way they will keep coming back for more!
