At the heart of any digital transformation is the customer. The expectations they have and the ability to meet these needs is what drives a business forward. The latest AI language model, ChatGPT, is seemingly changing the way we communicate with computers, so any digital transformation now needs to change too…
Digital transformation uses technologies such as cloud computing and artificial intelligence, to improve a business’s efficiency, increase innovation and meet the needs and expectations of customers. As ChatGPT is a new AI powered language model it will naturally have an impact on digital transformation, as it offers the potential to revolutionise the way we interact with computers. It enables a more natural and human-like communication in fact. Although ChatGPT will affect multiple industries such as finance, healthcare, legal and education, one of the biggest will be its impact on customer service.
With its ability to generate human-like text, ChatGPT can be used to provide 24/7 support to customers, reducing response times and improve customer satisfaction. This is particularly important for businesses that operate in multiple time zones or for those that have customers working outside of business hours. It can also be used to automate routine tasks such as answering FAQs and providing product information, freeing up time for human customer service representatives to handle more complex and value-adding tasks. Additionally, ChatGPT can be trained on a company’s specific product or service knowledge, enabling it to provide more accurate and relevant information to customers.
Although this all sounds great, the technology does have limited emotional intelligence and empathy compared to human interactions, and this plays a major part in any user experience. If the tone of voice, language used or feedback provided isn’t applied correctly there is the risk that it could have a negative effect on customer experience.
Digital transformation and ChatGPT are going to play a crucial role in shaping the future of the customer service industry. By providing quick, accurate, and human-like support, if applied correctly ChatGPT can enhance customer experience and help businesses to meet the growing expectations of their customers. If it isn’t, there is the risk it could damage a relationship and miss a valuable opportunity to gain competitive advantage.
However, it’s important to note that ChatGPT is just one tool among many that can aid in digital transformation, and its effectiveness will depend on how it’s integrated into a company’s overall strategy and processes.
