Have you talked to a robot today? It’s likely you have. You might have asked Alexa for a weather report, or told Siri to call your spouse. Or you might have chatted with an algorithmic customer support specialist on a website or over a messaging app.
These artificially intelligent companions are always on, always listening, always ready to help. They’re almost everything people want from a customer support experience. So, it’s tempting to think that the next level of customer support will be entirely bot-driven: Chatbots, digital assistants, and the like.

Technology can automate low-level interactions, freeing your agents to handle the issues that genuinely require a human touch.
