Roundtable Series Session 4: Conversational Commerce and Virtual Sales Assistants

Recorded - available as on demand webcast

They follow process, document their work in the CRM, never ask for raises and don’t complain.  The age of the virtual sales assistant is here.  Learn how AI driven automated sales outreach is different from automated email campaigns and how these tools augment traditional sales processes rather than replace them.

Bots and virtual sales assistants are part of a continuum of customer experience technologies and have a place in integrated digital marketing programs - from natural language driven e commerce applications to knowledge base driven expert advisors.  Our panel will discuss the experiences of organizations deploying these tools and explore the strengths and limitations of this type of approach.

In this session, attendees will gain an understanding of:

  • The various classes of AI driven sales bots and interfaces
  • Use cases for various types of tool
  • What organizations need to have in place to be successful
  • Ways to address the cultural impact of bots on the salesforce

AI assistants are a form of cognitive AI. They go by many different names. The different terms used to identify AI assistants are described below. The role of AI assistants is to support customers or employees as they carry out tasks. In some cases, for repeatable actions with unambiguous outcomes, a chatbot or AI assistant can fully automate interactions. In other cases, when the answer requires judgment and human expertise, the AI assistant can surface the necessary information to help the human solve a problem – whether for a customer self-service app or a customer service agent supporting an end user task. These virtual job assistants are designed to help customer support staff be more efficient, accomplishing the task more quickly and accurately with a consistent outcome.
