Collection Agent Novelty: Remarkably New Way to Collect Dues

GenAI Telecom Collection Agent: A New Way to Collect Payments


Welcome to our latest blog post! Let us introduce MadgicalTechdom, an Indian company that provides AI chatbot services like collection agent. We specialize in GenAI solutions. Our main goal is to help businesses save time and work better using advanced AI across different platforms. Join us to enhance customer experiences!

We served a big telecom company with 375 million users. At first, they used customer support agents to call users for payments and an NLP-based bot to collect them. But the bot couldn’t handle certain situations, like personal problems. So, the support staff had to jump in, taking up time and money.

Introducing our GenAI Telecom collection agent, who listens to users’ problems during conversation and encourages them to make payments. The agent is always polite when talking to customers.

7 Challenges for Telecoms Using NLP-Based Bots for Collections

Here are the top 7 challenges our telecom company faces while using NLP-based bots:

  1. Semantic Understanding: Accurately interpreting the meaning behind user queries and generating appropriate responses can be challenging, especially when dealing with complex or ambiguous language.
  2. Context Management: Maintaining context throughout a conversation is crucial for a natural flow. Ensuring that the chatbot understands and remembers previous interactions accurately is a significant challenge.
  3. Handling Variability in User Input: Users express themselves in diverse ways, and the chatbot must be robust enough to understand and respond effectively to a wide range of inputs, including slang, typos, or incomplete sentences.
  4. Training Data Quality: The quality and diversity of training data significantly impact the chatbot’s performance. Ensuring a robust and representative dataset is a constant challenge to improve the model’s accuracy.
  5. Continuous Learning and Improvement: NLP models need to adapt to changing language patterns and user expectations. Implementing mechanisms for continuous learning and improvement without human intervention is an ongoing challenge.
  6. Natural Language Generation (NLG): Crafting responses that sound natural and human-like is a significant challenge. Ensuring that the generated text is contextually appropriate and coherent adds complexity to the development process.
  7. Summarizing Chat Data: Once the chat between the bot and customer is done, it’s crucial to create a short summary. This summary helps us quickly understand what was discussed, and it’s important not to miss any key words.

The Technology Behind Our Intelligent Collection Agent

In creating this chatbot with GenAI, the main challenges involve picking the best large language model and writing the best prompts that stay on topic. Additionally, managing costs presents a significant challenge. Trying to save money without compromising the quality of the product encourages us to experiment with various strategies. Balancing these factors is crucial for developing an effective and efficient chatbot.

Large Language Model

A large language model is a sophisticated computer program trained on vast amounts of textual data to understand and generate human-like language. These models, like GPT-3, can perform various language-related tasks, such as answering questions, writing text, and even engaging in conversations, thanks to their extensive learning from diverse sources.

Choosing the Best Model : To pick the best model, you should consider what you need it to do. If you want a model that’s really good at understanding and generating complex language, a large language model might be the right choice. Look for one that has been trained on diverse data to handle various tasks. Essentially, the best model for you depends on the specific job you want it to perform – like writing, answering questions, or assisting in different language-related tasks.

Prompt Engineering

Prompt engineering involves crafting the instructions or queries given to a language model. This helps it generate the desired and accurate responses. It’s like providing clear and effective guidance to the model so it understands what you want it to do.

Importance of Writing Prompts Well: Writing prompts in a good structure is crucial because it directly influences how well the model performs. If your prompt is clear and specific, the model is more likely to generate accurate and useful outputs. It’s like giving the model a roadmap—the better the instructions, the more likely it is to reach the correct destination. So, a good prompt structure ensures that the model understands your intentions accurately and produces the desired results.

How Our Telecom Collection Agent Work?


Our GenAI Telecom Collection Agent is a sophisticated bot that understands and responds to human emotions, motivating customers to make timely payments. It also handles abusive language politely. Here’s a breakdown of how it operates:

  1. Users Data: Collects user information from the user profile table. This includes the user’s name, due payment amount, due payment date, and grace period date with whom the bot will interact.
  2. Prompt: We use user information to construct the instructions. These will be followed by the large language model to respond to the user in a polite manner. It will also handle abusive language appropriately and avoid entering a confrontational mode.
  3. LLM (Large Language Model): This text generation model first analyzes the context of the interaction. Then, it generates a response according to the instructions given in the prompt.
  4. End Conversation: Here we check the LLM response. If the response indicates the intent to end the conversation and this is the last message for the user, it jumps to the conversation summary steps. Otherwise, it goes back to the user step, and the conversation continues.
  5. User: Our telecom collection agent contacts customers to remind them of due payments. During the call, customers might say ‘I am not paying’ or ‘I have no money to pay.’ Based on their responses, we adjust our prompts until they either commit to a payment date or fully deny payment with a reason
  6. Conversation Summary: If the LLM response indicates the intent to end the conversation and this is the last message to the user, we summarize the entire conversation between our collection agents and the user. This precise summary is then saved in the database for further analysis.

Solving Challenges with Our Solution using GenAI

  1. Semantic Understanding: Our GenAI Telecom Collection Agent tackles the challenge of semantic understanding. It does this by employing advanced natural language processing techniques. These techniques help comprehend the meaning and intent behind user input accurately.
  2. Context Management: The agent adeptly manages contextual information throughout the conversation, ensuring that responses remain relevant and coherent within the ongoing dialogue.
  3. Handling Variability in User Input: GenAI’s robust algorithms enable it to effectively handle the variability in user input, including different phrasings, language styles, and expressions, thereby facilitating seamless communication with users.
  4. Natural Language Generation (NLG): Our agent leverages sophisticated NLG algorithms to generate responses that are not only contextually appropriate but also linguistically natural, thereby enhancing the user experience and maintaining engagement.
  5. Summarizing Chat Data: GenAI provides comprehensive summaries of chat data, condensing conversations into concise and informative summaries that are stored for future reference and analysis.
