The global lockdown situation has undoubtedly brought uncertainty to financial sustainability for businesses of all sizes in most of the industries in different parts of the world. There is no scope of visiting a branch or office for service related support or query. All you can count on is emails, calls and chats.
Team members of an organization are using unified communication platforms for live discussions, doubt-clearing sessions and presentations. Even teachers and students, as well as business owners and clients, are doing the same to avoid the communication gap. But, is it possible to stick with one-to-one or limited member communication on a platform especially when a business has a huge client-base and so many prospects with endless queries? Here comes the role of chatbots during COVID-19.
How chatbots are making life easier?
Thousands of queries are whirling in our minds since the first lockdown extension in India. The changing norms related to lockdown restrictions, essential service availability, segregation of regions into zones, alerts and health advice from experts – everyone wants to keep up with all these updates. The government has decided to deliver on-time and accurate replies and solutions to the citizens through automated technology integrated into their official websites. Similarly, a myriad of businesses joined the bandwagon by embracing chatbots to answer product or service related queries in different languages, showcase products in the form of carousels, generate leads, data authentication and so forth.
