How does ServiceNow enable lead generation?
ServiceNow is a low-code/no-code automation platform that helps businesses easily build a Virtual Agent ecosystem that intelligently follows a carefully defined script, the enterprise database information, and then the information in public domain, in succession, for answering queries. The Virtual Agents being strategically placed in customer-facing scenarios, such as business websites and portals, they simultaneously field the business queries and register the customer details. Customer service executives then follow-up with the customers/prospects and take the talks further at the customer’s convenience.
ServiceNow has in-built AI/ML layers. In addition, it effectively teams up with Generative AI. It enables the Virtual Agents to continuously self-learn with each query handling. It thus helps the Virtual Agents to objectively answer each question, even if a relevant answer is unavailable at the given point of time in its script or database. The Virtual Agents thus front-end with the customers 24x7 while effectively handling uncharted territories.
