What is a FAQ chatbot?

An FAQ chatbot can be used to automate answers to some of the more common questions your organisation may be asked. These types of questions can be a huge drain on your customer service team and often involve repetitive, copy & paste answers that are more easily and efficiently managed by machine.

An FAQ chatbot can be used to automate answers to some of the more common questions your organisation may be asked. These types of questions can be a huge drain on your customer service team and often involve repetitive, copy & paste answers that are more easily and efficiently managed by machine. 

FAQ chatbots are effective because they allow customers to get rapid access to the information they need without having to scroll through pages and pages of FAQs. Not only do they allow customers to self-serve and access answers to their questions without the need for human interaction, they also mean you can offer 24/7 customer service without the need to increase your staffing overheads. 

FAQ chatbots can take the form of either an AI or scripted chatbot, although scripted chatbots are more common in customer support and marketing settings. Scripted chatbots can carry out simple conversations with customers based on a predefined script. When a user sends a customer service query, the chatbot can reply with a predefined answer based on its script programming. As with other types of chatbot, the FAQ chatbot can escalate a query to a human agent if it’s unable to resolve it to the customer’s satisfaction.

More advanced AI chatbots can determine the answers to more complex questions based on the format of the question and information held within your organisation.

What are the benefits of a FAQ chatbot?

FAQ chatbots save customers valuable time, ensuring they’re not on hold for hours on end or spending large chunks of their day trawling through reams of FAQ pages. Allowing your customers to self-serve has two major benefits:

It means your customer service team can focus on providing quality customer care, rather than dealing with repetitive queries and means they can take time off out-of-hours.

Customers can get the information they need with minimal effort and without needing to speak to a customer service agent, which some people can find intimidating.
