In this modern age of customer service, clients want immediate solutions to their problems. In the first level of service, a chatbot can serve as the primary point of contact for the customers helping them find the expert who can resolve their problem. Chatbots can collect information from the customers regarding their issue in an interactive way and redirect them to expert human agents with basic information on the issue.Chatbots are capable of serving large volumes of customers simultaneously, efficiently and fast.
A huge number of customers call support service for repetitive inquiries that can be easily handled by chatbots without any human intervention. Tasks such as:
- Available balance
- Information about different package pricing, conditions and coverage area.
- Assistance on activating a tariff or package.
- Account related information
Chatbots can remind customers when their balance is low, a bill is due, a plan is about to expire or they could suggest a new package or plan based on previous data collected on the customers behaviour.
Chatbots are a great channel for collecting customer feedback. They can either proactively reach out to customers with whom they have chatted in the past or ask for feedback from a current customer after resolving issues. Here, the advantage is that people tend to view and respond to messenger notifications better than to SMS, emails, and phone calls. A feedback request received through a chatbot may be reviewed and answered at any convenient time of the customer.
