The company plans to integrate Japanese NLP engine to respond to customer inquiries and to provide information in more natural Japanese (from after September). It also plans to implement a mechanism which enables existing customers to easily subscribe their favorite items (by March next year).
For bot designing and tuning, transcosmos taps into its expertise in "FAQ Consulting Service". The dedicated facilitators, who are well-versed in social media operations, provide communication services that exceed the customers’ expectation after taking over the conversation from bot.
Bot is considered to have huge potential to become a powerful supporting tool in e-commerce. transcosmos endeavors to gain experience and technical skills through operating chat-bot for FUJIMAKI hyakkaten, and ultimately to apply the learned know-how to other services for its client companies.
