Chatbot License

uContact’s built-in Bots use a JavaScript engine to allow the execution of different activity workflows to perform almost any action imaginable: from providing simple/standard answers to executing transactions, making queries to databases and/or running WebServices.

Chatbot is only available with Omni licenses and carries an additional cost.

Interactions that can be automated by uContact Bots:

  • Facebook

  • Facebook Messenger

  • WhatsApp Business

  • Webchat

  • SMS

  • Email

Bot’s Characteristics:

  • They are native - No need to integrate any third-party solution to add Bots and automation processes into your omnichannel strategy: they are built within the solution.

  • Simple Development - Using uContact’s low-code Workflow Designer, you can develop your own Bots just by dragging and dropping activity buttons/icons into the workflow designer panel according to your strategy.

  • Customizable - Edit your Bots’ workflow and adapt it to each channel or campaign using uContact’s Workflow Designer. BUT, watch out: once you change a Bot’s workflow, it will change its logic in all the channels and campaigns it’s assigned to.

  • Various Types - Use and develop Bots for different business logics/operations –transactional, informative, pre-service, or even add Artificial Intelligence.

Important note:

The same Bot license can be used and replicated into different channels integrated into uContact, but only if it follows the same activity workflow. Should this workflow change depending on the channel, another Bot license must be acquired.

Definitions of Terms

Administrator = Person responsible for managing the contact center operations through agent and campaign creations, queue assignments, IVR workflows, quality models and auto-dialer management, etc. In some cases, the Administrator role may be occupied by the same person as the Supervisor. But, in any case, he/she will be the one in charge of creating, adding, and managing everything agents and supervisors need in order to use uContact effectively (aside from monitoring the contact center's activity).

Agent = Person using the services to interact with clients

Auto Dialer = Technology capable of uploading and analyzing contact lists, segmenting them, assigning them by priority and carrying out a specific strategy. The system triggers calls automatically and thus automates the work of the agents.

Chatbot = Technology that stimulates and processes human conversation, allowing clients to interact with you via digital channels just as if they were communicating with a live agent.

Interaction = The way in which clients get in touch with an organization after selecting the communication channel of their choice. Interactions can be human or robotic, and can include chatbots, live agent sessions, or video calls.

Omnichannel = Allows you to centralize and manage multiple touchpoints and their respective interactions in the same place. An omnichannel strategy ensures that the client receives the same experience, regardless of the communication method they choose to use to interact with your company or brand, and your agents can obtain a comprehensive view of the client.

SIP Trunk = Service that allows you to connect to the public telephone network (PSTN) through VoIP technology.

Supervisor = Responsible for the supervision and control of agents in a contact center. Tasks include: ensuring incoming calls are answered in a reasonable timeframe; that clients receive the care and information they request; intervene in the resolution of issues and manage/supervise the staff in the contact center; as well as the fulfillment of objectives and functions.

Voice campaign = Strategy used in contact centers to contact one or more individuals from a list using different telephony-related features (auto-dialers, call routing, automatic call distribution, IVR, and more).

Auto Attendant IVR = Interactive voice response, or IVR, is an automated telephone system that combines pre-recorded messages or text-to-speech technology with a dual-tone multi-frequency (DTMF) interface to engage callers, allowing them to provide and access information without a live agent.
