The word chatbot is a contraction of the words chat (online conversation) and bot (robot). It is a software with artificial intelligence. It is programmed to chat in natural language with users of a website, or an email application such as Gmail.

What is the point of connecting a chatbot to Gmail?

Connecting the Google Mail application to a chatbot is interesting for many reasons. The main one is that connecting the chatbot to Google Mail allows you to provide better customer service to your product users or customers.

In fact, Google Mail is an application sometimes used by e-tailers to address the concerns of customers or users of a product. Therefore, it can be an important tool for a company’s customer service. However, when it is managed by an individual, there are often delays in responding to customer concerns, oversights, as well as no response at certain times.

These shortcomings are corrected when the Google Mail account is connected to a chatbot. The customer service is totally energized. Since the chatbot is based on artificial intelligence, it does not get tired, does not get stressed, and does not rest. It can then meet the demands of customers (service users) day and night and at any time.

All this contributes to improving the user experience of your customers. In addition to boosting customer service, the interest of chatbots for human resources is not negligible. By connecting it to Google Mail, the workload of human resources is reduced and this division of labor can make the company more efficient.
