Chatbots in customer experience: eBook
CX Network looks at the examples of three very different organizations – a large private company, a charity and a government body – to find out the role chatbots have played in transforming their front-facing services.
Chatbots in customer care
To fast track issue resolution times and empower customers to take control of their own experiences, brands are beginning to recruit a new breed of staff member: chatbots.
When implemented correctly, chatbots can provide significant business benefits. They can rapidly respond to large volumes of customers simultaneously, which shrinks the strain on human agents and, in some cases, can reduce cost-to-serve levels by as much as 30 per cent, according to recent studies.
When used incorrectly, however, chatbots can become an expensive distraction for businesses and greatly damage customer experiences at scale. Implementation mistakes can result in a long list of failures that frustrate customers.
In this eBook, CX Network presents key learnings from three CX experts at brands that are experimenting with chatbots: Heineken, Calderdale Council and Versus Arthritis. The lessons from each case study offer advice for CX practitioners on how to successfully integrate chatbots into their customer journeys and avoid the common growing pains of implementation.
