Trying to achieve this with a “business as usual” approach won’t work. But by unleashing AI and automation in their businesses, customer support executives can actually deliver on this.

5 Ways Support Teams Increase Productivity with Talla

Posted by Alyssa Verzino on Nov 19, 2018 10:37:04 AM

Your support team’s productivity directly impacts your customers. When your support team is bogged down with tickets, repetitive questions, and is stuck searching for information, it impairs their ability to provide quality service. With customer experience becoming increasingly important, this is a huge problem. In fact, according to the American Express 2017 Customer Service Barometer, “33% of Americans say they’ll consider switching companies after just a single instance of poor service” and, “Americans tell an average of 15 people about a poor service experience, versus the 11 people they’ll tell about a good experience”. Long story short, your customers expect excellence from your customer support team.

14 Lessons Learned From 2 Years of Marketing Enterprise AI Bots and Knowledge Bases For Support Teams

Posted by Rob May on Nov 6, 2018 11:25:37 AM

At Talla, we have an automation platform for support teams that automates much of the support process away. It's a combination of a very different knowledge base (although we work with other KBs) and a chatbot. What is unique about our product is that you don't have to script out anything. You don't have to build bot decision trees. The bot learns from your Support documentation like a human would. Then it connects to your other Support systems to take action. Instead of a search engine, it's an action and automation engine that you can control from a web, or chat interface. (Plug: If that sounds cool, get a demo.)

Stop Searching for Information and Start Using AI to Get Answers

Posted by Juliette Kopecky on Nov 5, 2018 3:00:00 PM

One question that we often hear is, “How is Q&A in Talla different than search?” While both are ways of finding information that you’re looking for, Q&A gives users a specific answer to their question, whereas search provides a list of possible places that your answer might be. Search makes you do the work of finding the answer by digging through the results. Ask yourself: Would you rather have the treasure in front of you or a handful of maps that might lead to it?
