The solution to the issue is a customer-facing chatbot guiding the user through clusters of relevant information related to the coronavirus and the policy of the customers.
The chatbot is white-labelled to the insurer style guide including font, colour and avatar. As most of the people start their journey using their mobile, specific attention to details was given by creating an automatic full-screen trigger. It means that the people using the chatbot from mobile are immersed in "WhatsApp" like experience.
It creates a great opportunity for the insurer to increase the time spent digitally with the customers. Customers tend to spend less time browsing from page to page rather than talking to a chatbot.
Also, complex topics are better explained through a conversation. Which is why conversations with agents over the phone tend to perform well. However, call centres are quickly saturated deteriorating the performance of this channel. The chatbot is able to deliver a conversation but in a scalable way addressing the need for immediate response and also delivering relevant information. It means that agents are left with higher value calls for complex queries to solve. It results in improving the performance of operations.
The chatbot can be accessed across multiple devices and is live 24/7/365, creating a perfect digital tool to absorb the surge in enquiries.
Working hand in hand, the global insurance company and Spixii deployed dedicated teams who sprinted through the rigorous Spixii delivery framework. With successful teamwork and can-do attitude, the chatbot could reach high quality and be live by the deadline imposed.
