Is Using Chatbots Right for Your Business?


David Burnie shares a post from his company’s website that explains how chatbots are transforming financial services and insurance.

“Why use chatbots?

Customer expectations are constantly evolving, and the tech-savvy generation is increasingly looking to resolve queries on their own. In addition, there is a continually growing expectation for round-the-clock customer service. These consumer preferences are fueling the growth of technology solutions such as chatbots. When deployed efficiently, chatbots effectively reduce operational costs while providing 24/7 interaction with the customer. Numerous financial services institutions across the globe have differentiated their customer service by adopting chatbots and decreasing the customer service gap. A few stats that depict the importance of chatbots include:

~76% of consumers would trust a bot for an insurance quote

A leading fintech company resolved more than 50% of customer inquiries without a live frontline employee

A leading insurance company in the Netherlands helped ~85% of visitors resolve their queries through a chatbot

A leading US bank handles more than 100 million queries via its chatbot per quarter, with ~19.5 million consumers using the chatbot

A leading Australian bank handles ~200 banking tasks using a chatbot

5 types of chat capabilities

Having worked in the customer service industry for decades, we have seen a range of chat capabilities. We have broken down the entire spectrum into five broad buckets that vary in the degree of automation and the amount of frontline employee involvement.”
