Top 5 Reasons to Use Artificial Intelligence Chat in Your Contact Center

1. Zero Wait Times

Do you suffer from long chat queues? How about any chat queues? Can you imagine a world where your customers are either immediately engaged in a proactive chat, or can easily decide to engage in a on-demand chat and get immediate service, no matter how busy your contact center is? Well, that day is today. With AI chat integrated into your contact center customers can be served immediately with no additional agent resources required. Now you can change your focus from calculating the time before a chat session starts to hcounting the number of chat sessions escalated to a live agent (We’ll give you a hint: It’s a lot less with Chat AI).

2. The High Efficiency Rate

The average chat session is completed in 42 seconds. With most questions being answered in just a few short seconds (Unless you’re Zappos, of course), Chat AI can quickly and effectively address most problems today, without having to engage a live agent. The savings in time and abandonment rate combined with the increased customer satisfaction, not only reduces costs, but delivers a measureable improvement in performance and customer perception.

3. It Really Understands Language

True Artificial Intelligence is not the robotic, sometimes irrelevant interaction of yesterday.  Answers are more personalized, relevant, and complemented by the newly acquired ability to access multiple data sources to deliver the best possible responses to inquiries. The technology “learns” the longer it is deployed, as a result customer  experiences improve with time without the need for additional investments in technology, people, or processes.

4. No such thing as a “Sick Day”

AI doesn’t sleep, it doesn’t get sick, you don’t need to train it, and it’ll never quit in the middle of a seasonal rush. You don’t even need to give it lunch, breaks, or let it go to the bathroom. Imagine how easy Workforce Management becomes when all you’re doing is flipping a switch. Scheduling becomes less and less of an issue over time, as the application continues to learn, making your investment more valuable over time.

5. 24x7x365

Imagine the increase in sales volume and support cases your business could handle if you’re able to offer 24x7x365 chat. And cart abandonment plummets when customers are offered chat. Today Chat AI can answer anywhere from 70-90% of customer inquiries meaning that only the most verbose requests require a human, and at an operational cost that is often 4 times less than the cost of staffing a contact center.

How nmodes technology is unique



nmodes AI is based on semantic algorithms. They require significantly less computational capacity compared to standard machine learning algorithms used by a majority of conversational AI systems today.

As a result, the infrastructure requirements are drastically reduced. In simple terms, what Google Home or Amazon Alexa do with the help of supercomputers or advanced computer farms, nmodes AI can do on a basic server.

And it gives nmodes ability to delegate conversational capacity to the users.  With the help of nmodes AI every business (and individual) can create their own AI to handle the details of the business (products, customers, etc) not accessible from the outside.

AI unmasked: How a chatbot is different from a voice bot




The main difference is in the linguistic complexity. 

People express themselves differently when they speak compared to when they type. When we speak we use more sentences and we make our sentences longer. 

As a result a voice bot needs to have better AI compared to a chatbot, in order to handle a conversation and deliver the same customer experience. 


If your business model allows it, is better to start with a chatbot and add a voice bot on top of it.

This way you can gradually increase the complexity of your AI without compromising on your customer experience.
