Chatbots

Chatbots, also known as virtual assistants, are programs equipped with an artificial intelligence engine allowing a dialogue with an interlocutor. The chatbot follows a well-defined scenario to best process a request such as an order, reservation or product search, schedules, etc. It integrates into a messaging platform such as Messenger or WhatsApp. All companies have a large number of customers or prospects who use Messenger or WhatsApp, given the number of account holders on these social networks. Therefore, offering a Messenger or WhatsApp bot to its customers is just as obvious as offering them an email address to be contacted.

Chatbots can welcome, inform, guide and advise potential customers based on a few keywords used by the visitor. These chatbots are one of the cheapest ways to answer a prospect's simple questions without investing in sales staff.

We speak of “machine learning” and artificial intelligence for chatbots because they use NLP (Natural Language Programming) capabilities, nevertheless their scenarios must be designed by humans who know the field (account managers, salespeople, call center agents ) in order to refine interactions based on real cases encountered with customers and prospects.

The preferred areas of a simple chatbot for limited budgets are: order management or reservations (hotels, restaurants, hairdressers, etc.), questions about schedules or product availability in stores, price requests, making appointments for the liberal professions.
