How can I use chatbots commercially?
A chatbot is a fully automated chat option which more and more businesses offer on their website. Some chatbots even have names, in which case the website displays: ‘Ask Cindy a question. She’s happy to help.’ Cindy is presented as a helpful, cheerful lady, but actually she’s a robot trying to answer a question based on certain keywords in a query. Chatbots help to lessen the workload of your customer service team. In Watermelon Messenger, a chatbot can be added to answer questions across several customer service channels, including Livechat, Telegram and Facebook Messenger. Questions asked through these channels can be answered simply and directly, without you having to worry about it.
Chatbots inzetten voor zakelijke klanten
Apart from B2C customers you can also use a chatbot for your corporate clients. Using a chatbot to answer questions from your B2B partners can be even more efficient than email, as corporate clients tend to ask specific questions and provide more relevant details. People contacting you in a personal capacity will tend to make more typing and spelling mistakes, and so are sometimes not understood by a chatbot. But corporate clients usually communicate their wishes more clearly. As a result the chatbot can pick up more quickly on relevant information and will more often provide the correct reply to a query or remark.
