What’s more is that consumers today have a variety of options when it comes to engaging with any brand they interact with.
According to several global studies, many consumers prefer engaging though text messaging above emails and calls, as it takes much less time and effort.
Taking this into account, companies are challenged to rethink the way they engage with their customers.
According to an article by Digital Doughnuts, virtual assistants have been on the rise in recent years, seeing widespread adoption.
The reason for this is because virtual assistants – together with the rise in popularity of messaging apps, the accelerated development of all kinds of sensors and wearables, and of course with the rise of emerging technologies and Artificial Intelligence (AI) – are ushering a new way for businesses to communicate with the world, but more importantly with customers.
Customers want to connect with businesses in the same way they chat with their friends and family — with fast, simple, and convenient messaging. The WhatsApp Business solution is a way for businesses to better manage conversations with their customers and provide useful information with those that choose to receive it.
