LG ProActive Customer Care Program Uses AI to Reduce Service Calls

By sending out alerts and notifications to customers, LG’s ProActive Customer Care Program seeks to remedy potential problems before they happen.


At CES 2019 the global manufacturer LG will introduce its 2019 UltraHD 4K televisions, soundbars, and other products. In a move to support its worldwide customers, LG will also introduce its ProActive Customer Care program that is backboned by artificial intelligence (AI).

LG explains that its new customer service initiative provides homeowners with an advanced and personalized approach to customer service. 

Through the service, LG can immediately alert appliance owners of potential problems before they happen, and the service can help facilitate expedited repairs. 

The AI-based ProActive Customer Care covers a variety of scenarios. For example, if reduced airflow is detected in a dryer vent, the program will send homeowners an alert explaining the issue and then provide steps for purchasing a new air filter. 

In addition, ProActive Customer Care has the ability to notify users when it is time to order more laundry or dishwasher detergent.

The service will also suggest simple solutions to help homeowners avoid issues and service calls. 

LG's ThinQ dishwashers and washing machines provide the option of automatically linking to Amazon Dash Replenishment to automatically reorder laundry and dish cleaning supplies to make sure homes never run out of soap.
