Frequently asked questions regarding chatbots creation service.

Chatbot is a software designed and developed to mimic human conversations through a computer or telephone. Chatbots can operate without direct human supervision, in voice or text channels through messaging apps, website chats, and call centre systems.

There are many different types of chatbots, depending on their purpose, communication channels, the level of advancement. For the most part, they are able to lead a conversation as per designed dialog flow to achieve set objectives like helping in day-to-day chores, answering simple questions (based on the internet research), collecting information, and many more.

Chatbots are important to your business because they’re the future of business in general.

There are some methods:

  • Check your timesheets of employees, are there communication tasks that take much time & effort? Those tasks could be more effective if using a chatbot
  • Do you have any repeat tasks doing manually? Like collect customer feedback, booking appointment, return order processing… those tasks could be removed by chatbots as well

I, personally, think that everyone or business can leverage a chatbot for more productive.

It’s different base on objectives.

But we can classify to some categories and what types for each.

1) By communication channels

  • Website chat
  • Messenger
  • WhatsApp
  • Twitter
  • Slack
  • Voicebots in phone channels

2) By purpose

  • Sales chatbots — helping with lead tracking and classification,
  • Customer service chatbots — automatic assistants able to complete simple repetitive tasks in the customer support workflow,
  • Marketing chatbots — working mostly on social media as channels for leading contests and content distribution,
  • Entertainment chatbots — might be included as part of marketing chatbots but used mostly to amuse audiences.

Most common use cases for chatbots:

  • Answer FAQ
  • Service repetitive processes (bank transfers, debt collection, appointment reminders)
  • Guide users through simple processes (filling out forms, etc)
  • Classify issues and redirect to proper agent/division (like IVR on steroids)
  • Gather sensitive data
  • Lead a contest (on social media)
  • Distribute resources (content marketing)

Your chatbots can do all of the above and so much more, depending on the level of advancement in the technology behind them.
