Why AI in Customer Service Matters and How Zendesk 'AI for Commerce' Can Help
agnoStack makes AI so simple it feels like magic
Artificial intelligence (AI) has revolutionized the way companies do business in recent years, and the customer service industry is no exception. With the help of tools like OpenAI, and the historic rise in adoption of ChatGPT, companies can enhance their customer service experience and improve customer satisfaction. AI-powered customer service can help businesses save time and money, while also providing a more personalized experience for their customers.
One area where AI can have a significant impact is in eCommerce customer service. The post-purchase experience is a crucial element of any eCommerce business, and AI can help streamline and optimize this process. This is where the newly released Zendesk 'AI for Commerce' from agnoStack comes in.
Here are some of the key reasons why AI in customer service matters:
- Faster Response Times: AI-powered chatbots can respond to customer queries instantly, 24/7, without any delay, reducing wait times for customers and increasing efficiency.
- Improved Customer Experience: AI can personalize customer interactions by using customer data to provide more relevant and contextual responses.
- Increased Efficiency: With AI, companies can automate repetitive tasks, freeing up agents' time to focus on more complex issues and improving overall efficiency.
- Reduced Costs: Automating customer service tasks with AI can reduce costs and increase scalability, enabling companies to handle more customer queries without adding headcount.
While GPT-3 was already impressive in its ability to generate human-like responses, OpenAI's new GPT-4 language model is expected to take things to the next level in coming months. ChatGPT will expand to supposedly now have more than 100 trillion parameters, which is almost ten times more than GPT-3.
This means it will have an even greater understanding of language and context, allowing it to generate more accurate and nuanced responses. So to answer your question, I believe that the difference between GPT-3 and GPT-4 will be quite significant in terms of creating more human-like responses.
AI can benefit eCommerce businesses in numerous ways, including:
- Increased Loyalty: AI-powered instant replies can help agents provide contextually relevant responses without needing to understand all of the customer and order data.
- Improved Efficiency: AI-powered chatbots, virtual assistants and macros can provide instant support to customers, freeing up agents' time to focus on more complex issues.
- Personalization: AI algorithms can analyze customer data to provide personalized recommendations and offers, creating a more tailored experience for customers INCLUDING localized responses with tailored sentiment and length.
- 24/7 Availability: AI-powered customer service can be made available round the clock, providing customers with support whenever they need it.
- Improved Customer Satisfaction: AI-powered customer service can provide faster response times and more accurate solutions, leading to higher customer satisfaction rates.
CommerceAI is a unique area of expertise - where properly training models to provide contextual access to customer and order data, combined with catalog information can be incredibly complex.
The launch of agnoStack's 'AI for Commerce' comes on the heels of Zendesk's recent announcement of its own current and upcoming AI-powered features, demonstrating the growing importance of AI in customer service. Zendesk's recent acquisition of Smooch, a messaging platform that supports popular messaging apps like WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger, is also expected to further enhance the company's AI capabilities.
