In the last few years, many of the lead generation & customer service chat conversations have been powered by Chatbots. A chatbot is a basic software application that conducts a conversation via auditory or textual methods. Chatbots are often integrated into the website to provide a faster and easier to use interface. There are many industries that use chatbots all while improving customer service. Chatbots can be coupled with dialog systems for customer service, routing calls or collecting information.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) has also enhanced chatbots further. With AI, chatbot engines can understand human intents and generate automated responses for each specific inquiry. Many organizations prefer AI-enabled chatbots as it is economical. They are self-taught and can provide 24×7 support, improving the experience of the customer. This also helps customers to move through the sales funnel and keep them engaged.
