A chatbot platform is a computer-generated software that is programmed with artificial intelligence that enables it to conduct a conversation in the same way as a human would. They are designed to handle inquiries by responding in the same as a person would. The most effective and convincing systems are incorporated with complex natural language processors (NLP) which may even display a human face look-alike and be able to understand almost any form of input, then respond to it appropriately. Simpler versions involve the use of a database where the programmer adds a list of the most used keywords. These are then detected in the inquiries and matched with the most appropriate answer which is then displayed to the user. These platforms are mostly used by large organizations to automate the customer response process. They are preferable because of their ability to handle many inquiries at once and provide the most accurate responses.
Cons: The Learning Academy and help topics are not sufficient to train you to use this product. It took a lot of stumbling through (and still does) on how to figure out what to do and how to train the chatbot. Also - support is only available through email, would be extremely helpful to be able to get help in realtime.... You would think a chat product would have the ability to LiveChat with it's customers!

Overall: We are now able to leave our Chat on 24/7, when previously we had limited hours (due to staffing) for the Chat. It is still very much a work in progress to ensure the ChatBot has routed to the correct conversations and can sometimes be frustrating to try and figure out why the ChatBot went to a certain scenario over another. The help topics the company provides can point you in the right direction but they are written at a level above the capabilities of a brand new user to bots in my opinion. Determining whether or not no conversation with a client vs a below average conversation with a client (at times) is worth it, will determine whether we continue to renew our monthly subscription.
If a visitor does engage, the bot is programmed to answer and determine if the user is a qualified lead based on their questions and responses. Qualified leads are invited to book a sales call with a rep. A calendaring integration makes it easy to reserve a spot, and a CRM integration means qualified leads are automatically routed to the right salesperson.

Pros: The personal interaction with the team is probably the biggest draw for me. ActiveChat is one of the new players in the bot field, but they're clearly listening and responding to their early adopters via e-mail, the official Facebook Group and probably other channels as well. I am confident they will execute everything on their roadmap within a reasonable time frame, allowing us to create every type of bot we can imagine.
