IT Helpdesk

No matter how efficient your employees are, work grinds to a halt if there’s an IT issue. A malfunctioning computer or a broken link can prevent work from being completed for hours, leaving employees frustrated and clients and customers left on the hook. Keeping teams and their systems operational are essential to any business, and chatbots can be the first line of defence in ensuring no team member has to deal with technical issues. The benefits of drawing chatbots into the IT support system are twofold. Firstly, they are available around the clock, always able to provide team members with any support they may need. Secondly, these chatbots free up IT staff to focus on larger projects and saves their time for the more technical issues, leaving the chatbots to resolve simpler problems such as password resets and system wipes.

Onboarding

Traditionally, most businesses struggle to onboard new employees. Acquainting them with their new coworkers, new tasks, and the many new programs that will be used can often be overwhelming and not effective. Many employees find it hard to keep up with these introductions, and often forget what they’re taught. Fortunately, chatbots offer a radical change the way all employees see and experience onboarding.

Chatbots can be built to provide a more conversational element to traditional onboarding, helping field employees questions along the way, and guiding them to determine which parts are the most important. Not only do these chatbots increase the productivity of team members being onboarded, but it frees up HR employees to work on other projects and tasks.
