The Reasons for Chatbot Failures

Chatbots are lead generators, help desks, customer services, reinforcements for brand recognition and so on… but what if customers intentionally avoid talking to your bot? What are the reasons for chatbot failures? What are the biggest impediments for them to interact with your precisely designed “colleague”? How to overcome the bias against chatbots that results from bad experience? In hopes of answering these questions, we conducted a survey at Botium to see exactly what “chatbot-refusers” think and what is their first choice of information source. We tried to assess their general experience and how they feel towards different types of chatbots.

These results will hopefully help you optimize your business’ customer experience with conversational AI! We’ve passed the phase where chatbots are an “emerging” technology.

Use Chatbots to Unify Your Customer Communication Strategy

A customer calls your customer service line. While on hold, he fires off an email and opens up a support ticket through your website. Before a customer support rep can get back to him, he’s tweeting at you, or posting on your Facebook wall, or both. Each one of these interactions shows up in your system as a separate ticket, even though they’re all from the same customer and related to the same issue. It doesn’t have to be this way.Duplicated support requests like these happen all the time, and are a major cause of wasted resources for customer support (CS) teams, who often have no way to know that all these support tickets are related unless they manually flag them. That can be a time-consuming process, but it’s better than having your reps chasing after open tickets that have already been solved elsewhere. Chatbots can be an important part of

Conversational AI and Psychology: Personalised Automated Brand Interactions

Remember when you had to visit a bank personally to make money transfers or find out about your bank balance? Fortunately, internet banking and mobile banking apps came into existence and dispensed the requirement of visiting a branch for basic banking transactions. Banking has evolved further with conversational AI (chatbots powered by artificial intelligence technology), making it possible for each banking customer to have their own financial assistant. For instance, one of the early adopters of this technology, Bank of America, has deployed Erica, an AI-powered chatbot that helps customers carry out day-to-day banking operations. You can ask Erica for your bank balance information, pay bills, transfer money and even seek personalized budgeting suggestions based on your spending. Great, isn’t it? But conversational technology has evolved even further. Chatbots are venturing into domains primarily reserved for humans, like psychology. One example is Replika, an AI-based friend that listens to you

How are Chatbots Boosting Patient-Doctor Communication?

Isn’t it amazing that modern chatbots can make your life so much easier and improve your health status? Chatbots are a special type of software built with machine learning (ML) algorithms such as natural language processing (NLP) to help patients establish a faster connection with the right doctor. According to patients’ input, e.g. described symptoms, chatbots can successfully provide instant assistants or alleviate their chronic health conditions by sending alerts about daily pills intake.  From my experience working in a bespoke software development company, I learned the value of innovative technological solutions that change the way we communicate in the digital era. Especially during the Codvid-19 pandemic telehealth is not a far-fetched dream anymore.
