eGain Chatbot™ will enable subscribers and prospective customers to get 24×7 web self-service in English and Spanish, while enabling the wireless provider to deliver engaging and fun self-service experiences

Mountain View, CA (October 6, 2011): eGain (EGAN.OB), the leading provider of cloud and on-site customer interaction software, today announced that a premier wireless network operator in the US has selected eGain Chatbot to provide 24×7 web self-service in English and Spanish to subscribers and prospective customers.

Subscribers will be able to get answers to queries on mobile phone models, plans, billing, product issues, and procedures by chatting with the bot. Designed to behave like a human chat agent, the chatbot will interact with customers in an engaging, conversational style, and escalate to live chat agents with full context, when necessary. This eliminates the need for consumers to repeat information already shared with the chatbot, while alerting the human chat agent to solutions or answers provided by the chatbot that might not have worked for the subscriber. The chatbot’s personality and interactions will reflect the operator’s brand.

“Chatbots add a human face to self-service and make it useful and entertaining,” said Ashu Roy, eGain Chairman and CEO. “By co-innovating with blue-chip companies in the communications sector, we look forward to enabling unique customer interactions that are both delightful to subscribers and profitable for the business.”
