WHY DO YOU NEED ONE
As more and more services are being transformed to a “self-service” pattern, there is an increase in the need to assist users adopting these services, as some of them are not as intuitive as they should be. Instead of using typical “help” features, digital assistants and chatbots use a type of interaction humans appreciate – typing – offering users a rich and engaging experience.
Our digital assistants leverage the power of the cloud to significantly reduce operating costs, while maintaining a 24×7 service. This is achieved using serverless technology, where idle time is not charged.
An organizational perspective of chatbots shows that they are excellent tools for conversion rates, customer satisfaction and loyalty. They can also help businesses save up to 30% in operational costs across various industries. In addition, 58% of businesses agree that chatbots are driving disruption in their respective industry.

Link Consulting specialized and certified team helps you build powerful, custom-made chatbots & digital assistants that can help you provide a better customer experience and increase productivity while reducing cost.
Link Consulting uses the best-of-breed NPL/NLU engines for easy interpretation of what users are trying to achieve. But we also understand that the effectiveness of a digital assistant is not based on whether we use or not a state-of-the-art NLP engine. Instead, we built a series of tools allowing organizations to take control of all the interaction chatbots have with users, with advanced analytics and real-time conversation control support, allowing human operators using a backoffice application to intervene in specific chats (conversation hand-over or hijack) and helping the user more efficiently.
The results are a significant improvement in the user experience and satisfaction.
Simple Chatbots are old news.
