Chatbots can be used to gather information which helps in creating a memorable experience instead of the expected tedious one.  


C. The browsing experience should be streamlined:

D. Answer FAQs in real-time:

Companies have a standard FAQ page to answer common topics. The resources provided can be helpful for the customers only if they are ready to spend time gathering information through the vast repository of information that is presented to them. An FAQ can be made interactive by incorporating chatbots into their conversational design so that the process of searching for answers can be turned into a conversation.


E. Efficiently assist customers:

That is because most of the tasks a chatbot handles (For example, answering basic questions or helping prospects find the answers they need) would otherwise fall to live agents. When a chatbot is available for these interactions, it gives your live agent team time to focus on complex and more important duties.  

This can not only increase efficiency but also increase the chances that your customer service agents will be present to help new prospects as your chatbot generates them.

Since it is widely known that chatbots created within conversational user interfaces have the ability to be taken over by a human agent, your chatbots don't need to have the answer to all queries.
