Based on my responses, Wysa built me a “toolkit” with a variety of exercises “for better focus if I’m overwhelmed, to manage conflict, and to relax.” Some of these exercises are based around the practice of mindful meditation, which is an Eastern-influenced and evidence-based approach to managing a variety of psychological issues, especially stress and anxiety. I was also excited to see some yoga poses in my toolkit!

4. Chatbots make friends and build relationships: Most companies wish their agents had more time to make outbound, proactive contact with their customers. Chatbots are there to help, and in some ways, they are revolutionizing the way brands stay in touch with their customers. Whether it’s a simple email or text on a customer’s birthday, or a quick check-in to ask if they are enjoying the brand’s product or service, chatbots are helping to foster brand loyalty. Devine says, “This may sound counterintuitive, but the most sophisticated chatbots can provide a more human experience than an actual human. They don’t have bad days and they don’t get frustrated by typical customers.”

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.

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.

Non-technical tools: these are tools that anyone can use to quickly build a chatbot. These can be used to create simple chatbots or prototypes to quickly learn whether chatbots are a good fit for your application.

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.

Typically, customer service chatbots answer questions based on key words. The most basic systems are actually document retrieval systems. Sometimes this is frustrating. Think of the times you may have asked Siri or Alexa a question and received the wrong answer. The computer recognizes key words but may not recognize the context in which they are being used. In other words, the computer doesn’t recognize the way people naturally speak. This causes the customer great frustration. However, these systems (including Siri and Alexa) have come a long way and continue to improve.

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?

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.

Context and coherence: Some bots (or you ideal chatbot) can flow with long conversations and provide appropriate responses without losing the understanding of the subject being discussed. They may even help solve problems that are identified after lengthy discussions, or forward them to a human counterpart when they do not have enough knowledge to deal with them.
