Why Create a Chatbot

Chatbots are a technology that will transform your ability to communicate with and service your customers.

A chatbot can engage with your customers at a fraction of the cost of a human agent. They can:

  • Answer support queries during unsociably hours.
  • Respond accurately to all your often repeated questions.
  • Interact with a customer immediately, reducing time waiting in the queue
  • Can gather information to speed up the process

Benefits of a Chatbot

There are many benefits to adding chatbot technology to your sales and servicing.

  • Save money on your customer services bill. A chatbot can pick up as much as 85% of our routine repetitive queries. The chatbot can point to resources that can potentially answer the query and avoid the need to contact an agent. This will save the user time and prevent your valuable human resources needing to deal with routine queries.

    Research suggests that the costs of a chatbot interaction are far lower than their human counterpart:
    • Agent: £25 to £35 per interaction   
    •  Text chat £6 to £8 per session
    •  Chatbot: £0.40 to £0.45 per interaction 
    • 24 hours a day, 7 days a week servicing. Your chatbot can be there all day everyday. It is also ideal for out of hours cover and quiet periods, where your agents are under-employed.
    • Integrate your chatbot with your contact centre.  The user can choose to continue the conversation with a person, either through a call or a chat.
    • Manage peak flows of chat volumes. As the first engagement with clients, the chatbot can find out what the user needs and direct the enquiry to the best agent to resolve the problem.
    • The chatbot can automate the completion of tasks such as taking online payments or viewing and amending data by the customer.  This allows the user to pay bills whenever it suits them.

Chatbot Pricing

Design and Build

It is not easy to give a specific price for a chatbot as it will depend on what you need it to do.  

The next step would be to talk to us about your needs and your budget.

Here is a brief list of questions that you need to consider:

  • Are you looking for a basic FAQ chatbot, which will provide links to appropriate information?
  • Does the Chatbot need to have diagnostic questions, to funnel a general question to a specific answer?
  • Do you wish to want your chatbot to be able to handoff to a human agent?
  • Would you like the chatbot to provide confidential data to a user, where they provide the correct credentials. eg. invoices.

Our charges for our services are:

  • Development charges: £60 per hour
  • Specialist or Consultancy work:  £120 per hour.

Our chatbot, which you can test by clicking on the speech bubble, has around 45 service based questions and contains a number of funnel (diagnostic questions).

For a basic FAQ chatbot with around 20 questions would be £5000 - £8,000.

A ballpark cost for this kind of chatbot would be £18,000 - £20,000.
