Customer experience

How to use Artificial Intelligence (AI) to improve the customer experience in your company? 

What will you find in this post? 

Although studies related to artificial intelligence began around 1950, with the Turing Test, it was not until 1997, with the creation Deep Blue, of IBM winning a game of chess against professional player Garry Kasparov. , that public attention began to turn to the importance and capability of this type of intelligence. 

Following this milestone, in 2011, IBM introduced Watson to the world, a business-oriented cognitive services platform. Since then, investments to improve the use of AI have massively intensified until they have become part of the consumer's life and, consequently, indispensable for business strategies around the world. 

But what is the purpose of Artificial Intelligence?

Since the first study to use AI (the Turing Test), the goal was to test a machine that could mimic and map human behavior. In 1956, at the Dartmouth Conference, the development of intelligent machines came to be considered a science. From there, the name Artificial Intelligence emerged. 

This science aims to simulate human behavior and intelligence without needing a human. Studies in AI have improved the ability of machines to learn from data and even make decisions. For this, the basis used are the so-called algorithms, and it is from them that the data are studied and transformed into data and actions. 

And if, so far, you still think you're "free" to provide data to this technology, answer the following questions:

  • Have you ever used Google?
  • You've used Apple's Siri; Amazon's Lexa; Microsoft's Cortana; or even the Google Assistant? 

If the answer is yes to any of these questions, you are impacted by it in your everyday life! 

According to a study for IBM conducted by Morning Consultant, the pandemic caused 43% of businesses around the world to accelerate the implementation of the use of AI in their routine. 

The use of artificial intelligence has overcome the barriers of doubt and has been taking place in spoken reality players even in medicine, education and marketing. No matter your company's area of ​​activity, the use of AI can help you get even closer to your lead and, consequently, to your customer. 

How can artificial intelligence help you get closer to your consumer?

So far, you've already noticed that artificial intelligence is based on data, right? In the times we live in today, where everything happens very fast, it is important to have access to data in real time. One of the main advantages of Artificial Intelligence for companies, without a doubt, is the optimization of time spent on massive data collection and analysis activities.

The migration from face-to-face systems to online accelerated time even further and made consumers more thirsty for information and answers in real time. That piece of Legião Urbana's song that says "We don't have time to lose" never made so much sense. 

By the way, if you already know the theory of Marketing 5.0 exposed by Kotler, in 2021, you must have already understood where we want to go. We are living in an era where we have to be "ready to change". And what does that mean?

That we, as companies, need to be ready to identify opportunities and quickly change the strategies necessary to have greater assertiveness in contact with the consumer. Content exposed for a second on social media can make a difference. 

Good customer experience management involves data science and artificial intelligence to have greater agility in data analysis and decision making. 

Offering a pleasant and assertive experience from the moment of attracting new customers to post-purchase (when we aim at retention) involves much more than having a capture strategy. There is no point in investing in fundraising without monitoring data and KIPs that help you measure the efficiency of this strategy. 

The monitoring offered by AI allows you to analyze results in real time, identify gaps quickly and, consequently, make agile and data-based decisions to optimize actions or solve problems - a marketing 5.0 imperative.

This effort to analyze data in an agile way allows you to optimize your time and your client's time, as your UX strategy will be increasingly assertive, avoiding friction in the moments when there is contact between you and the client.

Obviously, we couldn't finish this post without talking about one of the most important tools that the use of AI has allowed to develop: the Chatbot.
