‘After e-commerce and apps, chat and bots are conquering the market’, says CEO of CM Telecom Jeroen van Glabbeek. He recently spent some time in the United States researching upcoming trends and believes chat and bots have the ability to replace apps and websites for CRM.
The rise of Artificial Intelligence
“During my research in the United States I spoke to a large number of entrepreneurs and investors to further understand the trend waves heading our way. I hear a lot about WeChat in China and the rise of AI, artificial intelligence. AI has been subject to talks for some years now, and it seems that in the Anglican area’s it’s really taking off.”
Jeroen is determining what’s next in mobile messaging and where the market is heading. “Messaging apps like Whatsapp, WeChat and Facebook Messenger are the new social media with self-educating systems running in the background that recognize written content and voice messages from customers and others who’re in contact with companies and organisations.”
“I see as the third wave in messaging. From 1999 to 2005 sms was especially a trend among enterprises. After that period, some people considered sms a somewhat invisible channel being used for its efficiency and inclusiveness by banks for one-time passwords, reminders from healthcare organisations and for voting during talent shows on television. Today, Whatsapp and bots are increasingly being used to contact customers. An app or website is no longer required to reach out to customers.”
