“Say we are working with a healthcare company, and 70 per cent of the conversations consumers have with the company are them wanting to schedule an appointment,” says Hakim. “Only 10 per cent of the conversation is about vaccines, let’s say, or actual medical issues.”

The chatbot is educated to take care of the routine elements of the dialog, go the affected person again to a human for the medical dialogue, then return them to the chatbot to test particulars and make preparations.

“A company typically has 20 to 50 really important use cases (subjects) that the customer converses about, so we look at those and try to determine what would give them the best experience,” says Hakim.

CommBox then goes by way of a ‘discovery process’ with the corporate to resolve which forms of conversations ought to be automated (normally probably the most repetitive queries), and what the bot ought to say in each. Conversations which might be – in the interim – an excessive amount of for the chatbot shall be handed on to a human.

“In the end, companies won’t need their websites, or their IVRs (Interactive Voice Response, or computer-operated telephone system) – because they have one script that can do everything, and can redirect the consumer to an agent if it can’t solve their query,” he says. “So why bother sending people to the website to understand the problem by themselves?”
