Studies show that not all interaction between a tenant and a housing association is via a telephone or email. Channel choices on how people interact with your organisation are:
- 57% Live Chat
- 60% Email
- 62% Telephone
- 51% Online Knowledge Base
- 34% Click-to-Call
- 8% Social Media
Social housing has always needed flexibility in customer communication, and this has never been more so. We understand your need to have an assurance that you can reach, or be reached by, your customers without interruption. In an environment where each customer communication could be crucial to them, be it to raise a repair, make a rental payment, report an issue or an equally important issue, you need to be there for them. Can you guarantee that will be the case and are your systems resilient enough?
Conversational AI allows advisors to spend more time on complex or high-value interactions instead of common questions such as ”I want to log a maintenance request”. With AI, the tenant can log the issue, with pictures; then the housing association can schedule in an appointment with the repair contractors and send a confirmation to the tenant.
Research has been done to ensure there are conversational AI personas that understand domains of knowledge for each vertical market including housing, with defined common processes and prospect and tenant enquiry resolution paths fully mapped. Using this persona as a starting point enables your organisation to retain control of the brand experience, without having to “start from scratch” to define the conversational AI experience.
How many conversations are you missing? You only know about the customers and prospects that contact you, or who are willing to wait to connect with a member of the team. Don’t let any prospect enquiries slip away and generate more sales by letting a chatbot speak with the ones you aren’t getting to.
- Increase tenant engagement.
- Increase employee satisfaction.
- Allow staff to spend time on complex or high-value interactions.
Be available for clients 24/7
