MessageBird, the cloud communications platform company, has announced it is on a mission to do away with waiting on hold forever by officially entering the $350B Customer Service market with the launch of Inbox.ai.
Recently named by both Gartner and IDC analysts as a leader in the rapidly growing cloud communications space, with Inbox.ai MessageBird is now taking on an even larger market with the unveiling of the first customer engagement platform that combines the power of automated intelligence with today’s most popular messaging channels to deliver the future of omnichannel customer support. Even better, it is available completely free.
Designed to be ‘the Slack for external communications, Inbox.ai takes 60 seconds to set up and enables customers to communicate with businesses in real-time, sharing everything from images and video to geolocation across WhatsApp, SMS, Voice, Messenger, Instagram, WeChat, Apple Business Chat, RCS, Line, and Telegram. Incoming messages and customer conversations, regardless of channel, are then combined into a single thread for easy ticketing. With the use of automated intelligence, conversation threads are analyzed for keywords, providing rapid insights into customer needs. The platform leverages webhooks to easily integrate into third-party tools and also comes pre-loaded with integrations including Shopify, Slack, Salesforce, Jira, and more.
“As the world becomes more mobile, few of us want to pause our day and wait on hold for a customer support agent. Consumers increasingly want to interact with businesses on their own timelines using the communications channels they prefer,” said Robert Vis, MessageBird CEO. “With no developer resources required, businesses can deploy Inbox.ai in less than 60 seconds and get started on the road to more modern customer engagements.”
With Inbox.ai, businesses can easily enable a wide variety of communications channels out of the box – there is no need to further task already overburdened development teams and no need to retrain customer experience teams. With Inbox.ai, businesses can now quickly and easily implement an omnichannel strategy. Inbox.ai is built on top of MessageBird Flow Builder, enabling customers to inject data from any source and automate communication flows leveraging AI features including Natural Language Processing for chatbots, sentiment analysis for better customer communications and automated replies to better route incoming inquiries. By adding and maintaining the connections to the world’s most popular communication channels, Inbox.ai does the heavy lifting so enterprises can focus on what matters most: delivering an experience that creates happy customers and brand loyalty.
