The future of work starts now

Off to the store of the future: Whether it’s material goods at eBay, virtual content on YouTube or standard services on Airbnb, for more and more companies, a digital platform is the core of their business. Traditional business models, where the goods make their way through sales channels and supply chains to the consumer, are increasingly being superseded by digital platforms. Using such platforms allows the consumer to collaborate, exchange ideas and get involved. This presents providers with quite a few challenges: How can I interact with customers round the clock? How can I increase customer loyalty? How can I automate monotonous, time-consuming processes? How can artificial intelligence simplify my daily work?

Customer management
day and night

Interacting with target groups with consistent quality regardless of the time — to meet this challenge, the MC team develops innovative artificial intelligence (AI) solutions: Chatbots are our new coworkers, who answer simple questions day and night, allowing a high level of engagement and taking a load off employees. This increases employees’ time for more complex activities.

Whether it’s developing complete chatbot projects from storyboard to rollout or improving and customizing existing bots, the MC team has demonstrated their capability in artificial intelligence. At the very start of a project, they work with the customer to analyze which customer questions the bot should cover. In storyboard workshops, they develop dialog structures together. The chatbot allows our customers to increase availability of services, offer a better customer experience and significantly lower costs at the same time.
