There is a growing cohort across a range of age and demographic variables that are not only comfortable with interacting with Chatbots – they actually prefer it.
 
A survey of almost 2500 respondents in 2019* showed that;
 
  • 83% of people would make messaging their primary means of contacting customer support if guaranteed an immediate response
  • 30% of respondents reported that they would knowingly engage with a customer support chatbot because “chatbots are very helpful.” – a doubling from the previous year
  • 25% of consumers prefer using a chatbot to contact customer support for complicated issues
Whilst for some may have been perceived chatbots as a fad, the reality of advances in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) have enabled chatbots to come into their own and present a viable solution to managing complex personalized customer experiences at scale.
 
Conversational AI presents an opportunity for businesses to free up internal support teams so they are able to quickly respond to, and address, complex customer needs that would often otherwise lead to negative reviews and feedback whilst more run of the mill interactions are handled seamlessly by an AI chatbot.
 
Revium chose Cognigy as its preferred conversational AI partner as they are clearly a leader in their field with a number of significant advantages over some of their competitors;
