Artificial intelligence chatbots and conversational interfaces have become the face of customer service all over the world, and for good reason. We live in a world that demands instant communication from our friends, family, colleagues and even businesses we contact. Spoilt with instantaneous replies on social media and instant messaging applications, customers use this as their benchmark when speaking to your clients. As an industry expert in communication solutions, your clients rely on your organisation to provide them with solutions that can fulfil these customer needs in a cost effective and productive manner. 

Conversational interfaces, like Click4Assistance’s Coni, are very different from natural language processing (NLP) AI engines like Artie. These pre-programmed interfaces allow customers to interact with them through a series of questions and answers. 

Lower cost to entry 

Artificial intelligence NLP chatbots can be expensive to work with, since they use IBM’s Watson engine, and is a lot more robust than what most businesses need. This is where conversational interfaces such as Click4Assistance’s Coni bridges the gap. Because Coni is a pre-programmed interface, it’s much easier to implement, lightweight to run, and much cheaper to get started with. So, your clients can get the benefits of having a chatbot, for the fraction of the cost of an AI NLP chatbot, which is a great way for them to start their journey into customer service automation. 

Someone available, 24/7

In this immediate world we live in, it’s expected that someone should always be online to respond, even outside of typical business hours. We live in a 24 hour world, where we browse, shop, and socialise online at all hours. Your clients’ customers are likely to visit their website long after their customer service agents have gone home. No matter what time customers are online, Coni will be available and ready to answer any questions they fire at her. If a customer wants to make a purchase, but has a question for a sales representative, they will be looking for one who would be online, human or robot. If a competitor has someone online and available, it stands to reason that the customer would make their purchase there, since someone was available to speak with them. 

Help customers figure out what they are looking for 

One of the best features of Coni is her ability to help a customer find what they are looking for with ease. With the right programming, customers will be able to go through a series of questions to discover exactly what product they need, rather than buy the wrong one. One example of how this works is with mobile technology. Imagine your client sold smartphones and had Coni on their website. Coni would ask them what they would use their phones for, what kind of screen they were looking for and maybe even if they took and saved lots of photos, and be able to make a recommendation for them, without having any human intervention. The customers will get the answers they want, when they want them, and your clients have a cost effective method of engaging customers.
