Cons: Initial onboarding is wonky and can use UX upgrades. It was difficult understanding how to get started until I watched several videos. I also had issues using this platform on Firefox to connect Facebook messenger. Currently, the workaround is to use Chrome to connect messenger and then you can continue working on Firefox. I don't like having to use a different browser to obtain functionality. The team promised this was a bug that will be ivnestigated
When BotEngine was released, I was an instant customer. I built and deployed bots on at least four other platforms while waiting for BotEngine and every one of those platforms was problematic. Either they weren't reliable and would malfunction without warning, or they were free and then not free and then kind of free and then not, etc, so i would gladly recommend.
Chatfuel helps you make a Facebook chatbot without coding. You can use the editing tools to design chatbots. And you can set up conversational rules in the dashboard. The bot will use NLP to understand and recognize phrases, and will send users predefined answers. You can build a chatbot to serve as a customer service advisor, an event assistant, or a personal avatar. Chatfuel’s analytics technology provides insights about the performance of the bot.
Chatbots, which are often called virtual agents or virtual assistants, are used in place of a human to conduct specific tasks or provide information based on written or spoken requests. This functionality includes both external, customer-facing requests and internal, employee-facing requests. Chatbots allow users to interact with an application in a conversational manner, whether textually or audibly, to perform certain functions.
There is a lot of potential for using chatbots for marketing. For example, it is possible to use Facebook advertising to send users directly to a Messenger chatbot. Users interacting with the chatbot consent to be contacted by the bot at a later point in time. This means that the cost-per-acquisition of Messenger contacts can be much lower than traditional email marketing.
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.
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.
Running on Pandorabots, one of the most powerful conversational artificial intelligence chatbot platforms, Mitsuku won the award for the most human-like AI in 2013 and again in 2017. She was created from AIML, a bot language technology by Steve Worswick, who found the inspiration for Mitsuku after being asked to write her character for an internet games site.
I like that Botengine platform is easy to use,thereby making it easy to create our chat bot in a matter of minutes,and with as much minimal support as possible from the software development team. Botengine is so simple to use,that it was created and deployed by myself and team members at the marketing team,despite not coming from a technical background.
Customer support tools, such as live chat, help desk, or contact center solutions, may already have chatbots implemented as a first line of defense when dealing with customers. However, they are becoming more widely used in other applications, such as sales and marketing knowledge bases. Users may even use them instead of a query language to find certain data points in business intelligence tools; by simply typing or speaking a request to a business intelligence platform, a chatbot can provide the proper data. Chatbot capabilities are constantly expanding and becoming more frequently implemented in other types of software.
