Conversational AI has been applied to different sectors and it has made significant improvement on businesses. Both staff and customers are embracing the new communication channel which enables them to spend less time on repetitive tasks in return for higher efficiency. Our Primary Partner, Druid AI, has gathered some findings to track the growth of this technology.
74% of Consumers Prefer Assistance from Conversational AI When Seeking Instant Answers
Imagine if you want to look for some information on a website with the help of a chatbot, the menu will pop up numerous options and you need to get through layers and layers of options for your answer, no matter how simple your request is. An AI chatbot, instead, thanks to its back-end integration with the relevant databases, can access the needed information almost instantly and return the answer to the user with zero delays. Deploying automation through conversational technology can save IT time since employees no longer have to answer the same set of questions repeatedly. At the same time, you can keep the consumers engaged because their queries can be answered fast.
55% of Potential Customers Can Be Lost Due to Lengthy Onboarding Processes and More Than 70% Drop-off in the First 20 Minutes
The biggest challenge with running a successful onboarding process is the length of time it takes a consumer from start to finish. It may take weeks to complete the process, which results in a delay in revenue and consumer dissatisfaction. Multiple documents, a tremendous amount of data, and multiple departments throughout the onboarding process make it very time-consuming.
Conversational AI can be used to automate the request for documents from a customer. Intelligent virtual assistants can help assist customers throughout the entire onboarding process and re-engage if they drop off. The AI assistant can also answer any queries and hand over the more complex questions to human agents.
Over 6 in 10 Customers Prefer to Use Digital Self-Serve Channels to Answer Their Questions
Modern customers prefer to learn and discover things on their own before contacting an organization. They don't typically want to connect with the company repeatedly for an issue or explain their situation time and time again. Customers prefer to find the answer to the query themselves, quickly, rather than waiting for a representative to reach them in a call queue. Additionally, self-service improves customer knowledge and allows them to resolve their problems independently, at their own pace, and learn as much (or as little) as they want.
