No more abandoned carts: Conversational AI to the rescuecoreview
With peak shopping season looming close, abandoned carts continue to be a recurring nightmare. It became a millennial pastime during the pandemic in 2020 — with a 94.4% cart abandonment rate on average for the retailers.
Had these abandoned carts converted into actual sales, what would the numbers look like for your business?
Paralysis of the pandemic and user experience
During the pandemic, brands have rapidly lost existing customers because of abandoned carts. This, of course, stems from the poor user experience — high pricing, unfriendly user interface, technological glitches, lack of payment options, and so on.
During the pandemic, retailers like Walmart, Amazon were able to pivot and experienced steady traffic growth because they improved their online platforms and developed a thorough understanding of customers’ needs and preferences.
Conversational AI: Tech-Tonic shift for retailers
Abandoned carts tend to signify one massive problem: customers don’t feel like they’re heard, which translates into an unpleasant user experience. Introducing regular chatbots won’t help matters either. Chatbots usually provide generalized and staccato responses, which leave the customers dissatisfied.
