Get into the new world by having a Chatbot for your business to transform the service, support, and overall user experience.

If you are wondering what Chatbot is – it’s a program designed to have a conversation with a human over Chat. You can train/configure your chatbot to answer to your customer on your behalf. A chatbot can understand the human language and respond accordingly.

There are a significant number of automation possibilities through Chatbot, including some of them below.

  • FAQ – create a bot to automate your frequently asked questions
  • Order Tracking/Shipping – let bot answer the order/shipping status

You can either develop your own or leverage the following service provider to build your chatbot.
