Studies and reports show that customers want quick, frictionless solutions to their problems and answers to their questions. No doubt there are acceptance issues for AI and chatbots. Some customers have always used traditional phone support and have a hard time accepting anything else. But, there is a growing contingent of customers who are increasingly open to new technology, especially if it can enhance their CX. As the technology improves and acceptance grows, chatbots, powered by AI, will have a strong role in customer service and support.
Pros: The visual bot builder makes building complicated bots really easy without loosing the greater picture. And with all the functions that are offered you are not limited by what the bot can do. And things you currently can't do are worked on by the developers immediately to make the product better. It is amazing how fast they pump out great updates!
Activechat.ai provides a visual tool to make development process for complex enterprise chatbots easier. It is a visual conversation flow builder with advanced natural language understanding tools and lots of integrations to business frameworks like e-commerce shops, CRMs and external APIs. Based on the concept of "LEGO for chatbots" this visual tool makes it easy to build smart multichannel bots in a couple of days instead of weeks and months of development. Strong points: visually simple flow builder, Shopify/WooCommerce direct integration, site tracking, mass broadcasts, Twilio SMS support.
Pros: Having a woocommerce site than activechat is a must have bot for your facebook page. Not only for facebook they have bots for other platforms like telegram, and whatsapp bots are about to launch in a while. They have launched a website widget too. NLP is an addition to this bot its just more interactive than any other bot available. I am waiting for whatsapp integration
Answer Bot works right alongside your support team. It uses machine learning to help answer your customers' questions with content from your Zendesk Guide knowledge base. The answers it provides are tailored to each customer's question accurately and reliably—every time. And when in doubt, Answer Bot loops in your support agents to offer the customer a human touch.
Pros: It's system is more advanced comparing with Manychat or Chatfuel (both are like toys if you try Activechat). It has autorresponders of course, but also suitable for flexible AI conversations. Is like coding an advanced chatbot without needing to be a coder. The team is very responsive and their founder Andrii has a clear vision about this project.
DB: Next, I moved on to the options that are centered on real-life (versus artificial intelligence) support. Joyable is an online platform that supports users with a dedicated real-life coach and a two-month course in CBT. It was developed by a powerhouse team of experts and scientists in the field of therapy. It costs $99 per month, though users can opt for a free, seven-day trial.
