To this end, dynamic decision trees leverage AI-powered Knowledge Management solutions to organize and disseminate information geared to achieve maximum customer satisfaction and improved brand-customer relationships in the long run.
What Are Dynamic Decision Trees?
A decision tree is a graphical tree following an if-then workflow to guide users with the next best action steps to troubleshoot a problem.
There is an increasing need for technological sophistication in a fast-paced customer service world to manage skyrocketing customer expectations. This is where a dynamic decision tree helps businesses to manage customer expectations while reducing support costs.
A dynamic decision tree has AI elements and machine learning backing to take an intuitive approach toward problem-solving.
Instead of the static decision tree approach used in service hotlines, where customers have to go through all the steps, a dynamic decision tree enables users to reach the most relevant input and skip or jump steps for faster resolutions.
With Knowledge Management solutions, decision trees can be created, organized, managed, and distributed across digital and assisted channels, resulting in enterprise-wide benefits.
3 Reasons To Use Dynamic Decision Trees For Support Teams
1. Reduce average handle time by guiding agents with the next best action step
A dynamic decision tree sorts out all the information for agents as guided steps to follow during customer calls. This reduces AHT by saving agents’ time in figuring out the problem and helps them focus on the solution stage.
2. Improve first call resolution with efficient call scripting
With dynamic decision tree scripts, agents can quickly identify the root cause of the problem and help customers with solutions at the first go itself. This reduces the number of repeat calls and improves FCR at contact centers.
3. Deliver mistake-proof customer service
A troubleshooting process involves multiple steps which need to be followed in the right order to achieve resolutions. A dynamic decision tree ensures agents do not miss any action and deliver mistake-proof customer service in compliance with the company’s standard operating procedures(SOPs).
Function Of Dynamic Decision Trees In Chatbots
1. Improve customer satisfaction with instant solutions
AI Chatbots are a go-to self-service option for customers. A dynamic decision tree can be integrated with modern chatbot solutions employing natural language processing (NLP) to engage humanly with customers and guide them through troubleshooting issues independently. This increases customer satisfaction with instant and accurate answers.
2. Minimize customer effort with guided instructions
With clickable options in chatbots guiding customers to reach the solutions, dynamic decision trees minimize customer effort spent on explaining their issues at length. Minimizing customer effort significantly improves customer satisfaction.
