Today’s a big day.
Today we launch TypeGenie for Zendesk Chat. That means agents in customer support can now benefit from TypeGenie’s sentence predictions when answering live-chats. Woohoo!
This is how it works:
In the GIF you see how all the agent has to write is “Y” and “I” to complete their last two sentences. This is because TypeGenie has learnt from previous chats what the most relevant next words are.
All the agent has to do is hit “Tab”! To agents TypeGenie feels magical.
Here’s why it’s a game changer for all organisations doing live chat customer service:
Live chat is one of the fastest growing channels in customer support. It’s well known that younger people prefer chatting rather than being on the phone or sending an email. But this trend was amplified by the pandemic as more and more companies brought on live-chat to deal with customers’ uncertainty right away.
Live chat can be great for both the business and the customer. Typically the conversation is more personal and informal, which makes the customer comfortable and creates a closer relationship. Also, problems can be solved quickly without the customer having to wait hours for an email response.
However, answering chats quickly and precisely in an always friendly tone can be a challenging and stressful job for the agents. When observing a chat team you hear new chat notifications go off everywhere and all the time. Ping! Beep! Bzz! Somewhat similar to being in a Japanese pachinko hall. Potentially the most stressful place on earth.
This could be the highlights of a job description of a customer service agent doing live chat:
In short, being a chat agent is tough!
This is where TypeGenie comes in: It lowers the burden on agents by helping them solve chats faster and improving the quality of their messaging.
We have tested the new chat integration with existing customers. And they already love it.
The benefits are clear:

Github's Copilot offers a similar service to TypeGenie but focused on Developers rather than Customer Service Agents so we decided to take a closer look at it.
