Consumers often request an action or information from a brand. These consumer requests can be grouped under named categories that we call “intents.” Examples of common intents include:

  • Check order status: “What is the status of my lawn mower order?”
  • Make a payment: “Can I make a payment today for the total amount?”
  • Reset password: “I forgot my password and I need to reset it.”

Intent Manager is a suite of tools for intent modeling and management. You can use it to:

  • Discover intents that can or should be automated
  • Build an intent taxonomy
  • Optimize how well they are being fulfilled
  • Analyze the most popular consumer intents
