About one in seven people on earth use the messaging app WhatsApp every month, and over three-quarters of the world’s ‘smartphone using population’ use one of the current 24 messaging applications daily. Messaging is clearly becoming ever more central in people’s lives, and corporations are increasingly developing technology to meet their customers where they live their lives.
At a recent webinar we hosted at Syndeo, I was delighted to introduce Oliver Lennon, who has many years experience in the customer experience arena and founded Syndeo, talk about what the future holds and how to avoid “Chatbot Hell”.
The Contact Centre Industry will have to change in this Social Era, and there are three things that Oliver thinks we need to address, namely how to…
- easily engage with the ever-growing numbers of messaging app users
- enhance the customer experience while keeping the costs down
- easily manage the rapid pace of change within your technology tools of choice
We are in the early stages of the evolution of chatbots, and it is predicted: “that by 2019 20% of brands will abandon their mobile apps”. This “hell” is rising as a result of a proliferation of “stand-alone chatbots”, which Oliver believes can only be avoided by adding Personalisation, increasing Automation and Connecting better with the right expertise (inside or outside the organisation).
