Chat bots are an effective means of marketing, interaction with users, process optimization for any type of business. Many businesses are still searching for exactly which processes chatbots can be useful for them. However, one of the most effective and already popular and recognized solutions for using a chatbot is its implementation in the processes of customer support and customer service.
Chat bots do not need weekends or lunch breaks, they can work continuously without losing efficiency and attention. A chatbot can answer the questions of an unlimited number of users at once, while a human can only handle one request at a time. The chatbot does not confuse the information to be provided to the customer or the customer himself.
80% of requests for support or advice are template requests that do not provide standard answers to users. Introducing a chatbot into its business processes, a company can redirect 80% of its employees' time to other tasks, or handling more personalized requests.
The chatbot allows you to highlight standard requests and provide answers to them even before the user wants to individually consider his request. But, if necessary, the chatbot can always notify the manager about the need to connect to the conversation.
When requests from customers are processed by a person, no matter how professional a specialist he is, there is always the possibility of error, confusion, and the human factor. A person can get tired, a person can make a mistake, a person has a tendency to get tired, and treat each client differently. The introduction of a chatbot for customer support eliminates all human factors in this process, increases the level of service and customer loyalty.
Clients of the company can use various channels to communicate with the company, for example: bots Telegram, Viber, FB, company website, email, etc. Omnichannel allows you to combine the channels through which the user sent the request into one client card. In the future, this significantly helps the company manager to quickly understand what kind of client this is, to see the history of his requests, and to roughly understand which question is bothering the user.
First, the company should decide on the requests that come to it from users most often. Convenient navigation and consultations on these requests must be provided to the client in the chatbot itself, even before he may have the desire to connect the operator to the chat. This is the most important process, which will continue to relieve managers by more than 80%.
Secondly, it is necessary to decide whether the automation of the support process is the only purpose for creating a chatbot.
