Chatbot for Customers & Prospects for Distribution
and Food & Beverages Sector

Overview – A Pandemic Disruption

The Food and Beverage (F&B) and the Distribution industry has gone through a disruption during the pandemic. Digital services in these industries have widely adopted web and mobile apps, which are proven channels to interact with customers and prospects alike.

Further, a big shift has happened in consumer behavior as more and more folks are spending time on messaging channels. A recent Tech crunch study points out a 40% jump in traffic on messaging channels such as Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp and even SMS. Players that will recognize and respond to this change will stand to gain much.

What Marketeers can do to adapt and overcome the industry change?

Emerging Artificial Intelligence (AI) and bot technologies have now opened up new possibilities for customer interaction, with the use of Natural Language Processing (NLP) becoming the major market driver.

As stated earlier, messaging apps are now in vogue with the target audience and companies that will open up these asynchronous messaging channels for customer interaction by leveraging NLP & AI will stand to gain market share, improve customer experience and decrease customer interaction costs.
For instance, since April 2017, Subway, The Cheesecake Factory, and FreshDirect are using a chatbot for Facebook Messenger and have seen good adoption of the same. Data by Chatbots Magazine proves that implementing virtual agents saves companies up to 30% of their customer service costs.

Lastly, by adding Chatbot to their food ordering or any public-facing website, businesses can increase the average time spent by users on their web page which in turn has a direct effect on their SEO rankings. According to a recent Deloitte study, on an average, businesses improved their bounce rate by over 17% by deploying chatbots on their website.
