Panelists Debbie Zmorenski, formerly of Walt Disney World Company and currently an independent consultant specializing in customer service, and Clara de Soto, entrepreneur and co-founder of Reply.ai, an enterprise-level chatbot platform, participated in the conversation.
The panel, titled, “Chatbots & Pixiedust: Extraordinary Service Sells,” focused on how creating a transformative customer service culture can be achieved through digital and mobile means.
Key takeaways included how a chat-bot can deliver consistent and extraordinary customer service, how artificial intelligence may deliver a positive and consistent consumer experience, and how a well-received customer interaction will not only sell, but also create loyalty and brand evangelism.

“Effective customer service is an essential part of retaining customers and ensuring satisfaction for any business or brand,” stated Mr. Kelly.
“In a digital age, many people prefer online or mobile communication over a phone call or in-person conversation because it’s more comfortable and convenient. Using artificial intelligence, chat-bots and NLP or natural language processing capabilities, we can deliver authentic customer service responsiveness to customers all over the globe, in their language, at any time of day. Great customer service can mean the difference between failure and success for brands in 2018.”
The “Chatbots & Pixiedust: Extraordinary Service Sells,” panel also highlighted the importance of building a service advantage foundation, creating a statement of purpose, identifying a brand’s overarching goals, creating unity across all lines of business, clearly defining and prioritizing customer service, and keeping standards of service and customer satisfaction high.
