“Sendbird worked very closely with us as a customer to develop this FAQ Bot,” said Ozgur Gemici of Virgin Mobile. “We are excited to expand our capacity to answer customer questions within our app without having to add live agents. The intelligent automation of Sendbird’s FAQ Bot also makes our agents’ lives exponentially easier, and our customers appreciate the immediate response.”
Sendbird Desk makes it simple for organizations to embed live chat support at the point of need so customers get answers without ever leaving the company’s application. Sendbird Desk combines a flexible, feature-rich chat API with an easy-to-use, out-of-box support agent dashboard for monitoring and managing customer support conversations. The new FAQ Bot feature will automatically answer the most common customer questions 24/7 without requiring a live agent. Providing on-demand chat support within an application improves customer engagement and satisfaction, which leads to greater usage and transactions within the app.
“Our FAQ Bot helps customers balance the need to automate certain customer conversations at scale with the need to humanize other customer interactions with a live person,” said John Kim, co-founder and CEO of Sendbird. “By adding this feature to Sendbird Desk, our customers increase the quality and focus of customer interactions with live agents while the bot can automate response to more basic inquiries.
