Automating your customer conversation.

What is a chatbot and why do they work?

Chatbots are used to automate the conversation between you and your customers, providing them with instant responses and delivering an awesome customer service experience. Your chatbot can help with all sorts of things within your business, here are a few examples to get you thinking:

  • Answering FAQs
  • Helping with bookings or purchases
  • Customer signposting and navigation
  • Mitigating risk and loss of customers
  • Lead generation
Roles that chatbots can fill

It’s been shown that if you can provide your customers with an easy and quick way to deal with their enquiries, this will directly translate into increased sales.

Chatbots can be deployed wherever it makes the most sense for you and your customers, whether that’s on your website, or in social channels such as Facebook messenger.

Your chatbot is on hand 24/7 to support your customers, but if someone needs that extra bit of help, there is always a seamless handover to a human.
