What is chatbot?

A chatbot is a tool that can interact with customers via messages in real time, 24/7/365. Therefore, customers do not need to wait in a long time for support from businesses. 

Today, people enjoy interaction through messaging platforms. According to statistics of Facebook Messenger in the early 2020, more than 61% of surveyed customers said that messages are convenient and quick to connect with businesses. In Vietnam, Zalo is the most used messaging platform with over 100 million accounts. Therefore, having a chatbot that is integrated into multiple channels is essential to every business.

Also, chatbots support humans to perform the most time-consuming tasks, helping businesses to reduce costs of human resources. Their employees can focus on professional, more difficult tasks.

Differentiate normal chatbots and AI-powered chatbots

Chatbots were invented decades ago. However, chatbots usually answered questions exactly like  predetermined scenarios. Thus, it had a limit in communicating with customers, causing users to be indifferent to this technology solution. 

About the last 5 years, Artificial intelligence has been developing strongly. Chatbots are now powered by Artificial intelligence (AI) and Machine learning, which helps chatbots to learn from conversations with customers themself to become smarter over time. Natural language processing technology (NLP) helps AI-powered chatbots to understand the intent in users’ sentences and give accurate responses. Users do not need to enter rigid sentences to chat with chatbots but can express their ideas in their style. By identifying key words and variables in users’ sentences, smart chatbots understand and respond to users flexibly.

Besides, AI-powered chatbots can be integrated with many add-ons to solve a diversity of business problems. Chatbots not only can advise, provide information about products/services but also can perform many other tasks such as collect customer data, order, make appointments.

With the order feature of AI-powered chatbot, customers can quickly complete their buying process, thereby increasing conversion rate and providing more revenue to businesses.
