Salesforce Einstein Chatbots vs. Live Agent

Before we get to the crux of Einstein Chatbots, it’s essential that you understand the difference between a chatbot and a Live Agent. A Salesforce Live Agent is exactly what it sounds like: chatting with a real person online rather than a bot. Though talking to a human is well and good, it is most likely that sales and support reps cannot respond immediately to every conversation. And if you cannot respond to your customers in 10 seconds or less, you are not giving them the best possible experience, which could become a missed opportunity.

Salesforce Einstein Voice Assistants or chatbots give you the edge by instantly responding to customer/prospect queries even when a live agent is unavailable for chat, giving you an opportunity to collect prospect info and later possibly convert it to a valuable lead.

Build Your Own Salesforce Einstein Chatbot

Here are 7 simple steps to build your own Einstein Chatbot

1. You’ll need to setup Live Agent, Web Snap-ins and the Omni-Chanel prior to building a bot.

2. Once you have Live Agent ready to go, head over to Einstein Chatbots.

3. Enable Einstein Chatbots – then go ahead and change the Live agent status to active

  • Another example will be your Transfer to an Agent Dialog. In the Dialog below, if someone starts the “Transfer to an Agent” Dialog, we want to ask them a series of questions about who they are and what their issue is before sending that chat to an agent.

  • Once all of the questions have been asked, the next part of the dialog is an Action. The Action is where we are creating, or doing something, within Salesforce. In this instance, we want to pre-create a Case and then put all of the answers we collected into fields on the Case.

7. Once your Bot is ready, proceed and click Finish.
