In the past couple of years while working with large financial institutions and educational institutions we have learned a lot about customer service. When we started we saw customer service as a process to answer customer queries. However, soon we started seeing it as a great way to build loyalty, excite customers while ensuring satisfactory solutions to their queries/problems.

To help you understand the process of setting up a good customer service chatbot, let me quickly run you through the basic jargons:

  1. Intent: recognizing what the user is looking for
  2. Expressions: how is the customer reacting, positive, negative, or neutral
  3. DialogStates: structure to how your bot can answer the query
  4. Bot Replies: the actual answer of the bots
  5. NLP: AI focussed technique to improve on the overall interaction capabilities of the bot

What is a customer service chatbot?

A customer service chatbot is an AI-powered interactive chatbot that is used to answer the queries of your customers.

The range of such queries includes, How many users can I add?”, How much do you charge?”,  “How can we integrate with Dialogflow?” and more. 

Such answers are often answered with the help of the knowledge base or FAQ page of your website. They recognize users’ intent and respond with the right answers. With time these bots get trained and recognize diverse forms of the same questions and respond using your preferred voice and tone. 

Why do you need a customer service chatbot?

Numbers of us have a myth that bots will replace customer service agents, the answer is No! These bots are now to complement these agents to help them do their job better. 

Following are the main reasons you should build your customer service chatbot

  • They can be great in understanding these interactions and can manage the repetitive workflows

  • Today’s businesses are global and understanding every user is imperative. With multi-lingual support, you can take your first step.
  • They can provide support across multiple channels like websites, apps, social platforms, and more.
