What is Chatbot Service?

A chatbot is a program that uses artificial intelligence to answer questions on certain channels, such as websites, social networks, etc. The use of machine learning allows the chatbot service to learn continuously and be able to generate increasingly insightful responses.

It should be fed with information about the company, such as blog materials, product pages, FAQs, brand guides, etc. Any content that helps the program to know the brand is valid. 

Also, this data helps the chatbot to learn the brand's tone of voice.

Alana Chatbot automates all responses with human quality, and goes even further, managing to perform multichannel service and transfer to human service, if necessary.

  1. The customer database is - fortunately - growing a lot;
  2. The service needs to be multichannel (website, WhatsApp, Twitter, Facebook, e-mail, etc);
  3. You do not have a service team available 24 hours;
  4. You need scalable technology.

How can chatbot be part of your team?

Alana Chatbot does not replace a human. It will be part of the team, be a co-worker, and help reduce the time people spend doing repetitive tasks, so they can dedicate themselves to strategies with the greatest impact. 

Chatbots are excellent for improving the flow of interaction with customers, but in some specific cases they will still need the care of a human, after all, artificial intelligence chatbots still cannot empathize with humans.

AI exists to help human beings to perform jobs in the best way, not to replace them.


Benefits of Chatbot Services

If the bot is unable to resolve the doubt, it can show the schedules of humans or right on open a request to be resolved later by a human. They are also great for providing links to customer information.


Chatbots learn non-stop

AI is also used so that the chatbot learns continuously, through machine learning techniques, and can understand patterns, similarities, and context. 

 For example, if the chatbot knows the answer to the question "where do I find the price?", It can automatically understand some variations ("how do I find the price?") And add them to its database.
