The created Bot typically starts by greeting an end user and drawing them into an engaging conversation and providing response options that serve as triggers for unfolding various conversation scenarios. Well though through conversation may reach any complexity level and help end users in multiple ways: get quick reference or a link to required information, get guidance on specific processes, automate mundane tasks, etc.

Apty Bot leads the conversation, which implies reactive behaviour from the end users: Apty Bot asks them questions with the aim of saving answers for completing specific tasks, offers users a choice of options that may define the further course of conversation, makes system API calls when passing user answers to the system, and returns blocks of information that may be useful for completing related assignments. Apty Bot answers frequently asked questions and helps avoiding frequently made mistakes by being there for your end user. 

Apty Customer Success team will help you create Chat Bots that lead helpful conversations of any difficulty and serve as virtual assistants for your employees and end users.
