Adding a Chatbot to your live chat allows your visitors to interact with a bot, inside your regular live chat interface. You have total control over the questions and answers your Chatbot handles, using the question base from within your Comm100 dashboard.

Benefits of Running a Chatbot

Our Chatbot can be used as a first line of support to automatically answer queries from your customer base, leaving your live chat agents to only handle the most complex of queries. With our Chatbot you can:

  • Shorten handle times by handling customer enquiries more quickly
  • Lower service costs by reducing your reliance on human agents
  • Upskill your team, letting them focus only on complex queries which can’t be handled by your Chatbot
  • Decrease agent training time for basic tasks that can be handled by your Chatbot

Setting Up Your Chatbot

You can set up your Chatbot easily through your Comm100 Live Chat dashboard, assigning it with a name, avatar, and appropriate greeting messages.

You can also tell your Chatbot when you want it to take chats – either based on a fixed percentage of all chats, or you can set it up to take chats when the queue length hits a certain number.

Setting Questions for Chatbot to Answer

Personalize your Chatbot’s responses by filling in your question base with your most frequently asked questions and their answers.

For example, if customers commonly ask “What are your cut-offs for shipping?”, you can add in the answer “Orders placed before 5 PM will be packaged and shipped the same day. Orders placed after this time will be shipped the next day.”

The more questions you give Chatbot to learn, the more accurate it will be in fetching the right answers.

You can also set up related questions to be displayed each time your Chatbot answers a question from a visitor, allowing them to find even more helpful information.

Providing Personalized Account Information to Customers

Comm100’s Chatbot allows Webhooks integration. With a Webhooks, when your Chatbot has high confidence in an answer being supplied, Chatbot will reference your own database to provide helpful, personalized information to your customers.

Some examples of customer questions you can set up with Webhooks include:

  • What was the amount of my last bill?
  • What is the tracking number for my order?
  • What’s my shipping address?
  • When is my next payment due?
  • What telephone number do you have on my record?

Keywords and Synonyms

You can also improve the accuracy of your Chatbot’s responses by adding in synonyms, or words that are related to a keyword.

For example, at Comm100 we tend to refer to our product as “live chat”. We can then add synonyms to that keyword so that Chatbot can tell when people are referring to it in similar language: for example, adding “chat software” or “live support” to this keyword means that visitors can be understood by Chatbot, even if they’re using language that’s not within Chatbot’s question base.

Chatbot Answer Confidence

For every question asked by a visitor, Chatbot will assign a ‘Confidence Score’ to each answer it gives, based on the information in the question base.

If Chatbot isn’t highly confident in returning an accurate answer, it will return a selection of related questions which should help.

For each question returned, Chatbot will also give visitors the opportunity to rate the answer given as helpful or not helpful.

If Chatbot cannot find an answer it has confidence in, or a visitor rates an answer as unhelpful, it gives visitors the option to chat with an agent.

Switching between Chatbot and Agents

You can choose whether you want visitors to be able to switch to an agent-led service after they are assigned a chat with your Chatbot.

If you decide to, visitors can switch to an agent chat at any time. Or, you can disable this option so your visitors meet the Chatbot as a first line service, keeping your agents available only for queries that the Chatbot cannot answer.
