In customer service-focused industries, like banking, the goal of better chatbots sounds a little bit odd and too good to be true : to empower people to spend less time thinking about their financial obligations while nevertheless making better financial decisions and Banks still got the benefit.
Personalization has become a crucial differentiator in banking. Beyond the efficiency of transactions, customers now want the bank to know them and offer them personalized services. The digitalization of the banking industry is rapidly transforming the way banks do business with their customers. To remain competitive in this innovative climate, banks must keep up with the latest in digital banking technologies. Artificially intelligent financial chatbots are the most recent innovation in digital banking products. Leveraging the power of Natural Language Processing (NLP), they`re empowering consumers to make smart spending decisions while giving financial providers a competitive edge.
Chatbots that equipped with NLP can analyze, process, and communicate with users, using language they understand. NLP techniques categorize customer data by tagging parts of speech, correcting spelling, and re-formatting numbers and dates into something the machine can read.
In a typical banking scenario, the chatbot can virtually manage a set of standard transactions across different operations, eliminating the need of the bank`s staff to deal with every individual customer and rather focus on exceptions.
Now imagine the boost in productivity and efficiency for the staff. Instead of asking an employee to check multiple systems/databases on when the bank received the email communication from the individual customer giving the consent, you can simply ask this question to a bot, which has been trained on this data and querying. Bot technology complemented by distributed computing enables the bank`s staff to meet more complex compliance requirements much faster and reduce the cost of compliance.
Chatbots have the power to provide 24/7 personalized customer service and meet the user wherever they are. By implementing chatbots into financial services, it`s easier to detect customer preferences, opinions, feelings, and inclinations, and learn how to enhance the quality of interactions while building insights to deepen customer relationships.
