Overall: Botengine greatly reduces the number of chats our helpdesk support team gets to respond to. Realistically too ,a lot of customer questions have their answers already on the company website , thereby making it easy for our chatbot to simply direct such customers to the appropriate part of the website ,where answer to their query is available. Saving our agents the need to spend precious time doing that.
If you plan on using ChatBot, it'll take a while to get it near perfection. I would recommend creating a list of events or potential encounters and map it out on your website to try to predict how to fix it. Plan this out on paper and use each scenario, it'll take hours but it'll build value and make it seem like the client is talking to a real person. After that, use the chat logs where a client runs into an issue with the chat to learn what can happen and fix that scenario.
Pros: Botengine is a product of Livechatinc and it is no surprise it is so efficient.I love how easy it is to create a chatbot via the Botengine platform and also the fact creating a chatbot requires no technical background.The level of support provided the team during the setup and continuous usage of our chatbot by the Livechatinc team ; allowing us know about newer ways through which we can improve the efficiency of our bots.
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?
