What makes chatbots so powerful?

Although they've been in development for decades, chatbots had a breakthrough in 2016. AI-powered bots have allowed companies to provide customer service around the clock without having to hire more people or spend huge amounts of money. Thanks to platforms like ChattyPeople, you can build an AI-powered chatbot in a matter of minutes for free, and without any coding knowledge.

The reason chatbots are so impressive is the AI technology that powers them. AI, which stands for artificial intelligence, allows bots to communicate and receive requests as if we were speaking to a friend. Chatbots also have the ability to parse and analyze huge amounts of information quickly and efficiently, so they can be utilized to provide visual representations of complex studies and their results as well.

In addition, you'll reach users directly through their favorite messaging platforms, such as Kik, Skype, or Facebook Messenger, thus increasing your chances of building a deeper bond with your target audience.

Known as internal-facing, or enterprise chatbots, their main purpose is to help your employees streamline difficult assignments, complete repetitive tasks, and provide information quickly and efficiently.

You could go a step further and create a chatbot that's specifically designed to serve the needs of CEOs and business owners.

1. Analyzing internal big data.

Chatbots have the ability to process a massive amount of information, so they can quickly sort through large internal data reports. These reports can reveal trends and patterns that can help you mitigate costly issues, such as attendance and seasonal anomalies. An enterprise chatbot can help an organization's CEO collect and analyze this information in order to build better strategies and guide the company in the right direction.

2. A useful direct scheduling tool.

One of the downsides of being a CEO or business leader is that you have very little time to spare. Automating repetitive, yet necessary tasks can prove to be an effective way to cope with the extremely busy work schedule. Building a chatbot to take care of your scheduling needs can help you stay organized without having to take the time from your daily routine to do it yourself.

3. As a personal assistant.

Although many CEOs have personal assistants to help them stay on top of their responsibilities, many small business owners and entrepreneurs don't have that kind of financial freedom. Chatbots offer a perfect solution that only requires you to invest some of your own time into creating and optimizing the bot. AI-powered bots learn with every interaction, so the amount of time you spend optimizing your bot will be significantly reduced the more you use it.

4. Measuring your team's morale.

Building an internal-facing bot is a great way to encourage your team members to communicate with their peers and colleagues. They can also help CEOs measure their team's morale and get an accurate feel for the overall satisfaction levels within their company.

5. Never bored doing mundane, daily tasks.

We all know that office jobs can become incredibly repetitive, even in the most creative industries. Chatbots offer a great alternative that help CEOs automate mundane tasks, such as replying to similar inquiries and appointment requests. They can then invest their time into revenue-generating activities without worrying about engaging in boring assignments.
