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!
Developed by Zendesk, a customer service platform that started in Copenhagen, Answer Bot is designed to help companies create customer relationships that are more personal and productive. Businesses can customize Answer Bot to answer and assist customers that visit their website without having to develop a customer service bot from scratch. When Answer Bot is unable to answer a customer's request, customers are redirected to one of the businesses' support agents.

Meya integrates easily with third party applications, which increases its usability.
If your business is on the fast path, a chatbot is almost indispensable. The platform ensures that your clients are kept engaged any time, any day. Unlike their human counterparts who can only effectively handle one or two queries at a time, chatbots are designed to attend to limitless conversations effortlessly. This helps eliminate waiting which may drive away potential clients.
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.
We only introduced Botengine by Livechat into our help desk process in November 2017 ,however as expected with all things created by the Livechat team (counting on past experience) ,it has been helpful for the team . One ,it is easy to integrate with our existing Livechat solution , and the helpdesk team integrated it ourselves without the need to leverage on the technical know-how of our colleagues at the engineering department. Two ,it reduced the chat workload on the help desk team ,as we no longer need to treat everyday customer query like ; what does Iroko tv do , what countries can Iroko be used ? Pricing of our services ?

Cons: Botengine has reduced the workload on the helpdesk department . However ,I fear we may come one day have an advanced Botengine ,years down the line ; which is able to respond to the current complex queries we respond to and thus when that day comes , why would my employer keep me at the job ,when a Bot can do a better job ,without ever getting tired?
