What is conversational AI?
Conversational AI is a live chat partner that is a machine learning algorithm instead of a human. The algorithm is trained to answer questions using information from connected legacy systems, like sales databases or a set of instructions. Depending on the purpose of the algorithm, it can also be known as a virtual customer assistant, virtual agent, chatbot, etc. Conversational AI can be customer-facing, employee-facing, or both.
How can conversational AI help customers?
With social media woven into our daily lives, customers now expect brands to be available instantly, on the go, and on a familiar channel. Conversational AI is the perfect way to provide support whenever and wherever it’s needed, like a friend that’s just a few taps away.
Conversational AI gives customers access to 24/7 service, allowing them to get answers to simple questions and contact a human if necessary. Since the virtual customer assistant is connected to relevant company systems, it can access customer information, preferences, history, and more. Customers get a smooth and robust service experience—all without a human involved.
How can conversational AI help employees?
Conversational AI can help employees in many ways, including as part of a customer care exchange or as an internal knowledge management or help desk tool. In customer care exchanges, virtual agents are extraordinarily useful. They automate repetitive tasks like answering frequently asked questions (FAQs), allowing customer care agents to concentrate on more complicated tickets. In these more complicated conversations, conversational AI serves as a real-time assistant, quickly supplying customer care agents with information and acting as an intelligent interface to company records and resources. With this information so accessible, human agents require less training, saving time and reducing costs.
For internal employees, conversational AI can answer common questions about company policies, PTO, holidays, and more. Instead of reaching out to an IT help desk or HR representative, employees can chat with their company’s internal chatbot. This bot prioritizes and routes any complicated employee requests to the IT team, managing their queue and saving them time as well.
