Surbo has demonstrated a 20% increase in engagement rate and lead generation; and 4X increase in insights intelligence by using machine learning chatbots that predict the interaction flow and make decisions in real-time, while automating repeat consumer queries and freeing up time for live agents to handle complicated queries. Further, the API service enables messaging conversations from Google My Business and Google Maps listings, assisting consumers before they come in by checking in-store stock, scheduling appointments, organizing curbside pickup, updating reservations, and more, and providing a Google’s built-in interface.  

Talking about the new channel, Vishwadeep Bajaj, Chief Executive Officer, ValueFirst, shared “Contrary to two years ago, chatbots are no longer the future. It is very much the present and we’ve seen this with the projects we’ve delivered across companies and sectors. With the launch of Google Business Messages, we will see a rise in speedy, simple, and convenient business conversations. For businesses, keeping up with customer inquiries is often labor-intensive and costly, especially out of office hours. It’ll be very straightforward moving forward”.
