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.
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.
