Viber, one of the most popular messaging platforms in the world, developed the bot to strengthen customer care for businesses.
Viber Chatbots are used for two-way chat over Viber and are session-based communication, meaning businesses are always there for customers with round-the-clock availability, streamlined communication, and an intuitive CX. Viber Chatbots offers end-users easy and fast communication with businesses in a more dynamic way using customizable keyboard options and rich media messaging. Verified Chatbots are searchable as channels in the Viber app which is very convenient for end-users.
Using the full power of Viber Chatbots, businesses can provide services that range from banking to retail and media services direct-to-customers. End users can converse in real time with organisations to receive services and support for things like account setup, bank balances, and purchase receipts in a timely and convenient manner on their preferred channel.
Etienne Dupont, Senior Director of Business Messaging Solutions at Rakuten Viber, comments: “Our successful 6-year partnership with Infobip is based on providing the most seamless and conversational digital experience possible. The popularity of Viber in 190 countries informed the decision to add this functionality and offer it through the Infobip platform. We look forward to bringing even better customer experiences to Viber users.”
Businesses can also use Viber Chatbots to engage and address customers with permissioned non-transactional messaging such as special offer alerts.
Kreso Zmak, VP Product at Infobip said: “Integrating this messaging feature into the customer journey allows brands to improve relationships with their customers as well as showcase new products or services. Viber Chatbots in Conversations/Answers aims to help businesses reach and extend the conversation to new and existing customers alike, customize the user keyboard and use rich media to offer a dynamic and immersive messaging experience.
