How Companies Use AI
Now, we live in the “big data” age, which is why AI's become a much bigger trend in recent years. We're now in an era where computers can hold and process an immense amount of data. Much more than any human being could process. And now, we’ve gotten to the point where companies can use AI to streamline processes, increase efficiency, and better market to their customers.
Administrative and Financial Services
To perform fairly simple administrative and financial tasks, many companies use AI to do the work that used to be done by human beings. From a simplistic point of view, these robots are essentially inputting and consuming data and then doing the appropriate action needed. These tasks include transferring data into records, updating information, and fixing various system failures. For example, businesses can store information like name and email after making a sale or update customer files in situations when a customer moves or changes their phone number. Even PSPINC uses it with PSP Pilot, which is our free CRM service that helps businesses manage tasks and customer data.
Additionally, AI can streamline processes for the financial sector. One example of this is replacing a lost or stolen credit card. After handling the customer on the phone, robots will reach into multiple different systems to handle the whole ordeal. Companies also use AI to help detect credit or insurance fraud
One very common AI practice is to use it to improve customer service. For example, many companies will embed a chatbox into their website, specifically designed to respond to customers’ questions and requests. Or they have an AI robot answer the phone when customers call in for support.
But for companies that handle more complex problems, automated phone calls aren’t always ideal. In fact, PSPINC still uses live support technicians to handle customer calls. However, AI is still very beneficial for businesses looking to streamline the customer service experience. AI allows companies to give their call center employees a break by using robots to provide 24/7 customer service on issues like password assistance or basic tech support questions.
Have you ever looked at something on a shopping site only for something similar to show up as an ad on your Facebook page? Or sometimes, you’ll see the exact product you were looking at earlier. That’s AI’s targeted (or retargeted) marketing hard at work. Using customers’ browser histories, robots can recommend similar products and services that the algorithm believes they’ll like as well. All of this, in turn, helps businesses increase not only sales but engagement and personalization.
