'CJ' the Virtual Chat Expert can calculate estimates, verify coverage, check schedule availability and answer thousands of other customer questions.

The Help Interactive case study explores College Hunks Hauling Junk's struggle with a high rate of inbound support requests and how a custom integration of the Virtual Chat Expert reduced contact center support requests and generated an increase in online bookings. College Hunks Hauling Junk (CHHJ) launched their site with web self service designed to facilitate online booking, yet after months of optimization CHHJ was still experiencing a surprisingly high rate of inbound support requests. Help Interactive's Virtual Chat Expert was the perfect solution to augment the existing self service and provide superior online customer service that assisted the user from interest to conversion.

The sophisticated Artificial Intelligence Chat engine that powers the Virtual Chat Expert allows users to ask their questions using everyday language and receive instant assistance that drives conversions and deflects high-cost calls and emails. Like a live chat agent, Virtual Chat Experts act as a personal site assistant that can co-browse, push pages or links, present rich media and increase brand loyalty. The virtual chat agent's knowledge base is composed of two primary elements, the custom script and the database integration. The custom script was built by Help Interactive’s team of writers to provide accurate responses to thousands of possible consumer questions. In order to provide the most up-to-date information, Help Interactive integrated their secure API to CHHJ's databases. This implementation allowed the Virtual Chat Expert to calculate estimates, verify coverage and check schedule availability without the need to ever manually update the agent.

The case study details how CHHJ's Virtual Chat Expert:

  • Completely integrates into the site experience
  • Increased online bookings almost 25%
  • Deflected 28% of inbound customer service calls
