3 ways AI will increase your sales

                                                       

Many of us get the understanding of artificial intelligence from the film industry. It creates an image of smart, humanized machines that are helpful, efficient and omnipresent. It is true that AI has seen rapid advances in the past several years, to the point that it became an integral part of our everyday life.  In real life, however, AI is far away from the level portrayed in sci-fi movies. And yet there are affordable AI tools and solutions that can make a significant impact on your business.

Here are three main reasons why a company, especially if it is a B2C company, should consider integrating AI into their business process.

AI makes your sales process scalable

AI solution dealing with your prospects and customers works 24/7 without sick days, holidays and breaks. It can handle any level of traffic, incoming inquiries and conversations. It does not need to be trained. It does not have personal issues or bad days. It is always polite and uses professional jargon. It is fast.

AI creates better user experience

Some might find it surprising but this is only because they have experienced low quality AI solutions. A professional AI solution makes customer experience better primarily because it delivers the results with a minimum of fuss and maximum efficiency. A good AI eliminates bureaucracy, makes customer experience speedy and seamless, and that’s what consumers are looking for today.   

AI offers sustainability

Adding AI to your business model creates long-term sustainability for the business. It allows your business to grow while controlling, or even minimising the costs. More importantly, it ensures that the business remains competitive in providing the level of customer service consumers became accustomed to. Lastly, it creates platform for future technical improvements and integrations which, without a doubt, will be based on Artificial Intelligence components.

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.

OUR AWESOME CHATBOT FEATURES

NMODES chatbots and conversational AI solutions come with a unique set of features.

Our goal is to make it easy for businesses to create and manage chatbots. The features we offer are important for successful implementation of a chatbot not only because they significantly improve its quality, but they also allow you to edit your chatbot in natural language, without any need to have technical knowledge or AI specialist in the team. 

1. Free AI Training 

Our chatbot solutions come with free AI training for life.

We will train your chatbot and continue to enhance it indefinitely.
It is our responsibility to ensure that your chatbot has the updated natural language processing capabilities. It is also our responsibility to guarantee that it understands not only common language but also language that is specific to your business, such as names of the products, terminology used in your industry, inventory list, and more. 

Your chatbot will be interacting with the customers all the time. We will enable it to learn from these interactions continuously and improve its language understanding and responses as a result of this learning.

2. Editing in natural language 

We realize that AI is a complex body of knowledge and one of your biggest concerns is that you are not familiar with it well enough. We made sure that you don’t need to be technically savvy to successfully manage a chatbot. Using our simple and friendly online interface you can control your chatbot in real time using common natural language. No technical knowledge is required.

At NMODES we continuously improve our AI capabilities. We use our AI not only to make the experience of your customers, conversing with your chatbot, better, but also to make your own experience, conversing with our platform, better.

Eventually the platform will be able to interact with you fully in natural language. We are not entirely there yet (it is an immense task). Still, we hold true to our promise that there is no need in being technically savvy to operate our platform even today. When the platform does not understand natural language our highly trained specialists are always ready to take over and provide support.


3. Real time connectivity 

Often there is a need for chatbot to access structured data (such as inventory database) to answer customer’s question. We made it easy for your chatbot to create external queries in real time and modify the responses accordingly. Your chatbot is able to decide in the middle of the conversation, based on the information it received from your database, how to respond and how to proceed with the conversation.

These are the most exciting among the features we created so that our customers have easy and enjoyable chatbot experiences. But there are other features available: conversational templates, dynamic AI Engines clustering, multiple widget skins and more! Let us know if want to see the full list of features.
