Consumers and companies seem to be on the same page. Customer Service Chatbots are the answer for a better future in customer service. More than 60% of consumers report seeing the future in customer service through chatbots. So let us look into the question, Why bots?
The next generation of chatbots is all about having a Chabot which is AI assisted. Technology vendors like Google, Microsoft or IBM support the development of chatbots with own frameworks and ready SDKs.
Soon, researchers predict, up to $0.70 could be saved per transaction via the use of bots, according to an infographic by Comm100, a chatbot provider.
Nearly 50% of consumers are already engaged in automated conversations with chatbots.
This is exactly the same experience we in Skillz Middle East share. If we talk about transaction-based services, chatbots can really make a difference. With chatbot use growing, businesses and organizations are required to have a system in place to understand what sort of return they’re getting from the technology. The infographic shows in five steps how to achieve ROI with chatbots in place.
- Identify eligible queries – First, examine what queries your company currently receives over live chat. Then, identify the top simple queries that could be resolved by a Chatbot.
- Calculate the percentage of chat dealing with eligible queries – Calculate how many of your chats are made up of si1nple (what a bot could answer) vs complex queries (what an agent should answer). Note that the 80:20 rule usually applies – 20% of queries represent 80% of query traffic.
- Calculate agent time spent on eligible chats – Calculate the estimated handle time for these types of simple inquiries.
- Estimate the annual cost of handling eligible chats – Multiply the hourly pay of your agent by the hours spent on these kinds of interactions. Get your annual cost by multiplying your monthly cost by 12.
- Understand how your chatbot stacks up – Compare your annual cost with your quoted Chatbot cost to find out how much you could save.
