How to use chatbots to improve customer service
Introduction: What are chatbots, and how can they improve customer service?
Chatbots are digital assistants that can engage with customers through natural language processing. They allow customer service employees to quickly and easily answer customer questions and resolve problems. Chatbots can also automate specific processes such as filling out forms or providing information. By improving customer service, chatbots can help businesses achieve their goal of creating a positive customer experience.
The use of chatbots for customer service has increased in the past few years. The first known use of a chatbot was by NASA in 1995 as part of its Virtual Air Traffic Control System. NASA's first use of a chatbot was to answer questions about the weather, space shuttle missions, and other information.
The first use of a chatbot for customer service was in 2010 by the technology company Salesforce.com. Salesforce.com's chatbot, named "Nina," was designed to help salespeople complete tasks and handle routine administrative tasks. The bot can take information from a customer and then respond with an automated message.
In 2012, the U.S. Department of Defense began using chatbots to assist soldiers in their daily tasks. These bots take information from an agent and respond with a personalized message or action.
How do chatbots work?
Chatbots are computer programs that can simulate human conversation, and they are used in various ways, including customer service and marketing. How chatbots work is not entirely understood, but it likely involves using artificial intelligence (AI) to understand the user's query and respond accordingly.
According to a report from Research and Markets, the chatbot market was projected to reach $2.3 billion by 2020.
This growth is driven by the rising number of consumers on social media platforms (SMPs) such as Facebook or Twitter.
