News : Lidl UK Launches AI Wine Chatbot to UK Customers with Aspect Software
London, UK, Jan, 2018 -- Aspect Software has announced a partnership with the UK’s retailer, Lidl UK, to deliver a fully automated, AI-powered, Facebook Messenger chatbot, which will help UK customers easily select the best wine for their meal or moment. Lidl’s new chatbot – named Margot – will become Lidl shoppers' virtual wine consultant at the tap of a screen.
Tobias Goebel, Aspect’s Senior Director of Emerging Technologies in charge of Aspect’s global chatbot program, adds: "The chatbot solution we offer boasts a breadth of knowledge while also letting customers ask questions in plain English vs. pressing buttons or sending scripted commands. This innovative technology will make a real improvement to Lidl customers’ experience."
Alex Murray, Digital Director at Lidl UK, commented: "At Lidl we have built a reputation for providing fantastic quality wines at highly competitive prices for our customers. Margot will ensure choosing the right wine is never a daunting process, and we hope this service – along with the existing in-store and online information we already provide – encourages customers to discover the perfect wine for any given meal or moment. We chose Aspect because of their deep understanding of what it takes to bring a superior customer experience to an international brand like Lidl. It’s been a fantastic collaboration throughout conception to roll out."
