Virtual Smart Agents increase conversions?

This came up this morning while chatting with a content manager friend
of mine. She's installing one of those "virtual smart agent"
things on her customer's web site.

It's one of those little in-page chat windows that pops up and asks
if you'd like to talk to an agent and get help.

She says they "increase conversions 10%".

I think they're one of the more annoying, and misused bits of fluff
to appear in the past few years.

In search of: User administration IxD examples

Hey all -

I'm looking for worthwhile IxD examples in the realm of user
administration 'enterprise' database applications (think SQL Server). We're
revamping ours and some new(-ish) ideas would be welcome.

Main users would be DBA's or system administrators tasked with setting up
and managing roles, users, & groups and their privileges with respect to
read/write data access, object creation/modification, and the like.

Maybe Vista user administration is worth a look? Are there less-known apps
you may know of that do this particularly well?
