Client is a leading Australian supermarket service provider, operating across 100+ locations and employing over 3000 workers.
While doing shopping, Chatbot should answer customer’s queries directly and upfront without need of reading the lengthy product specifications and also without the need of any interaction with customer support executive. It should answer specific customer questions to reduce the workload of floor staff.
Some add-on features expected such as,
- Manage shopping history and preferences
- Scan a loyalty card barcode in-store to encourage shopping rewards
During shopping, many customers would like to review/research more when the information available in store is insufficient. For example, a product specification in-store is of limited use or of no use if it is irrelevant to what customer is looking for. Chatting with floor assistant is possible, however it increases cost and availability. Therefore, Client wanted to build Chatbot based solution which could be helpful to end customers during shopping in supermarket.
