Best Practice Events & Site Visits

We facilitate site visits and best practice days, to share learning from our Award winners and finalists over the summer months, especially from the Transformation & Innovation Awards. This is another great opportunity to learn about the fantastic things that these organisations have achieved. These are interactive events to allow plenty of time for questions with key stakeholders in the transformation and networking with other delegates focussed on the same challenges. 

As a member, you are not on your own but part of a community with others facing many similar challenges. We are here to help you to make a tangible impact in your organisation and show how developing the capability of each specialist professional function is fundamental to your business.

Due to the current situation, we are turning our Best Practice Site visits into a virtual experience. More information is available on each visit below. Just click on Read More.

Chatbots are transforming the online sales journey at AA Ireland

See how a small team pioneered live chat and chatbots for sales, differentiating customer experience, cutting the length of chats by a third and raising conversion by 11% at key times.

Summary
Chatbots and live webchat have been pioneered at AA Ireland to grow sales and make the online experience far better for customers. crucially, this didn’t require major resource and, as a pioneering customer of ServisBOT’s Conversational AI Platform, a single manager powered this transformation, building up the webchat sales team then delivering chatbot automation, in just eight weeks. The Bot has become the first point of contact, completing many questions and handing strong leads to an advisor where it doesn’t yet have the answer, or a more personal touch is required. A test and learn approach was used and advisors were fully involved, incorporating their expert knowledge of objection handling with the ability to make valued suggestions to customers. It’s been a huge success, showing what a small team can achieve, and the use of Bots is expanding, to become a strategic driver for the business.

Key Results

  • 12% fewer live chats and 33% drop in AHT
  • 11% cut in webchats abandoned
  • Out of hours conversion up by 11% since start of Quote Helper
  • Motor Quote Bot delivered in 8 weeks
  • 4,000 chats a month handled by Quote Helper

This story stands out for how much can be achieved by a small team and budget, but clear focus and approach. This is a fully integrated channel and journey with bots collecting data from the customer on the website, making personalized recommendations to help optimize experience and pass the customer to an advisor if necessary. It offers inspiration and practical learning to anyone who is considering the use of or expansion of chatbots especially in a sales area. They are also entering the supplier/client awards with ServisBOT.
