Why Chatbots are So Popular
Consumers today want simplicity and speed, which is why mobile app growth has flattened and chatbots are on the rise. According to PwC analysts, speed and convenience hit over 70% importance to consumers*. Unlike mobile apps, chatbots can integrate anywhere. And with an intelligent chatbot quickly handling customer questions and requests, service agents are free to focus on special situations. The result is better service, more automation, and increased efficiency overall.
