Chatbots: The Definitive Guide (2020)
Customers are rarely interested in speaking to a utility company unless there’s a problem. The customer experience they are looking for is fast, seamless and frictionless. Conversational AI overcomes the issue of a lack of engagement by enabling enterprises to discover what customers really think – of their service, price, even additional services.
Solve their current problem quickly, and customers are more likely to answer a relevant question during the interaction. An issue with electricity costs might lead to a question about renewable energy. A problem with water supply, might trigger a question on utility insurance.
A Teneo conversational AI interface can intelligently determine the best question to ask for the situation based on what it already knows is relevant to the individual customer. This information might include data from the conversation that day, or previous information gleaned from other conversations and the customer’s account information.
Data privacy capabilities within Teneo allows enterprises to maximize the value of the data generated from conversational interactions, while maintaining compliance with regulations such as GDPR. Teneo Data can then be used to reveal actionable business insights and industry trends on a wider scale.
