Make hybrid chat work for you

High-powered hybrid chat will only take you so far. Your chatbot is still only as good as you train it.

That’s why WhosOn enables you to train and tailor your bot to suit your business.

Define custom strings

Tell your bot what data, in what format, to look for. (E.g. a post code, or a ticket reference.)

The bot can then search your systems for a match and return raw or pre-formatted ‘whispers’ to an agent.

Connect into your tech stack

Plug your bot into the third-party tools and internal programs you need it to work with.

You can use out of the box integrations, as well as custom-built ones via API.

Manage conversational flows

Teach your bot how to respond to customers using real conversational data.

You can create a dialogs library and intent architecture prior to bot launch, as well as ongoing refinement over time.

Run bot reports

Track bot performance via inbuilt sentiment analysis algorithms.

Then run detailed reports to chart its improvement and financial impact on your contact centre.

A maximum-efficiency environment

Hybrid chat gives you the best of both worlds. The warmth and scope of human live chat agents, accelerated by the pace and proficiency of chatbot support.
