<h1> <strong> 54% of French consumers have never heard of chatbots </strong> <br /> </ h1> </p>
<p> Barely 19% of French consumers know the definition and are able to explain the usefulness of chatbots, if we are to believe the results of the study “<em> French consumers, the  s Chatbots and customer service </em> ”produced by <a rel=Eptica. 54% of them, however, have never heard of it. Presented by industry experts as a major innovation in customer relations, chatbots still have some way to go to establish themselves in practice. Just over half (51%) of consumers believe that they would be useful in providing a better level of service, and only 18% believe that they will eventually become sales support tools.

Another lesson from the study, 57% of consumers surveyed by the software publisher believe that chatbots have the advantage of providing a rapid response, and 17% of centralizing all interactions with a brand. Finally, 28% of respondents believe that it is above all “a fad”.


** Study carried out among 662 French consumers, during the month of November 2016.
