In a world where AI is rapidly transforming industries, HighLevel is at the forefront with its latest advancement: Conversation AI. This powerful tool leverages OpenAI’s models to understand and respond to user queries conversationally, revolutionizing the way businesses engage with their customers. In this blog post, we’ll explore the capabilities of Conversation AI, its use cases and benefits, and the exciting updates that are on the horizon.
What is Conversation AI?
Conversation AI acts as a virtual assistant, utilizing advanced AI to provide responses, response suggestions, information, and support to users via SMS, Facebook, or Instagram. By harnessing the power of OpenAI’s models, HighLevel has created a cutting-edge tool that streamlines customer conversations and enhances the efficiency of appointment booking processes.
Features and Capabilities:
The best use case for the Conversation AI bot is to make your appointment booking workflows seamless for you and your client’s businesses. It guides customers through a conversation flow, qualifies them, and can get them booked onto your booking calendar without any necessary clicking or typing on your end. Here’s how –
- Calendar Integration: With Conversation AI, you have the flexibility to choose any calendar from a location. The bot will automatically use the booking link associated with your selected calendar, making enabling/setup of this feature easy!
- Conversation Flow: By setting up a predefined set of questions, you can guide the bot’s conversation and qualify clients before sending out the booking link. This allows you to gather specific information from customers and ensure each conversation has its own personal touch.
- FAQs: Provide contextual information about your business by adding Q&As that are specific to your or your client’s business. This enables the bot to respond to and qualify customers effectively and gives it the information necessary to carry on a conversation that looks and feels as organic and human as possible.
- 2 Ways to Play: There are two Conversation AI modes available to users.
- Suggestive Mode: Suggestive Mode offers message suggestions, serving as your personal assistant that anticipates your needs. You can choose to send the suggestion as is, customize it, or unleash your creativity and create your own response. This feature offers a new level of control and convenience in the face of AI-powered software.
- Auto-Pilot Mode: With Auto-Pilot Mode, the bot can reply to conversations on your behalf, even if you are away. This intelligent feature ensures fast responses, elevating the user experience to new heights.
Conversation AI Pricing and Billing:
With Conversation AI, there is no need for an OpenAI API key or account – HighLevel has you covered! The pricing structure is straightforward: $0.05 cents per message, with NO upfront or recurring costs. With competitors, you might expect to pay a monthly fee on top of usage fees – so we are proud to offer a flat rate pricing that will allow users the most benefits and flexibility.
