Why you need Engati’s chatbots and live chat for your telecom company

Ready to augment your customer support with the power of chatbots and live chat? Here’s why Engati is the best choice for your telecom company:

What can you do with Engati?

Here’s what Engati helps you do:

Provide support across multiple regions in 54 languages.

With both of Engati’s modules, you can engage with and support customers at scale, across regions, in their own language.

Only 26% of netizens understand English, so it’s very important to reach them in the language they are comfortable with.

In fact, they want to be engaged in their own language so badly, that, according to the Harvard Business Review, 56% of customers would actually pay more if they could receive information in their own language.

With Engati, you get to support them in Arabic, Portuguese, Spanish, Chinese, German, and 48 other languages, in addition to English.

Increase support agent productivity

Our power-packed combination of chatbots and live chat ensures that your live agents work in a more efficient manner.

They won’t have to deal with the frustration of answering the same question over and over again. 80% of customer queries tend to be repetitive and monotonous. These can be handled by chatbots so that your agents deal with the more complex questions that warrant their attention.

Now, your agents will have the chance to answer these complicated questions in a better manner, rather than simply rushing them along because they have another 17 customers waiting to get their issues resolved.

And, to make it even better, they can converse with multiple customers simultaneously. Try doing that over a phone call ;)

Share policies, plans, T&C, etc.

You can even share documents over the chat channels. This allows you to share policies with your clients without forcing them to visit your website.

It even allows you to send plans for them to choose from. It could essentially turn into a catalog for you, right over the channel your customers choose to chat on.

Our DocuSense technology even helps you answer questions by picking up the relevant matter from the documents that you upload, making it much easier for you to train your bot.

Verify documents

Getting documents verified while your customers applied for SIM cards used to be quite a tedious process.

Now, with our file upload node on our chatbots, your customers can upload their official documents securely to the chatbot and you can verify them directly from there.

This could dramatically reduce the time and effort your customers spend on verification and even help them get their SIM cards faster.


Telecom companies have been calling customers to upsell their services for a while now. But, nobody really wants to get on a call for that. Most of the time, the customers just say that they’re not interested and hang up.

This is partly because a phone call requires them to invest their time and attention, two of their most precious resources.

They don’t even want to get interrupted by a phone call.

But, if you upsell via an innovative chatbot, you have a greater chance of getting the sale. This is because reading messages takes much less time than listening to an agent on a call.

The bot’s analytics even allow you to understand them in a deeper fashion and personalize your pitch.

Facilitate payments

Imagine if your customers could just pay their bills over WhatsApp. Sounds pretty convenient, right? They wouldn’t have to navigate your website or even download your mobile app (who needs another app?).

We made it possible. They can now make payments directly over the chat channel they prefer.

You can send them their bills and invoices over the chatbot and have them pay directly from there, reducing customer effort and simplifying the customer journey.

They can even proactively buy pre-paid plans directly over the bot.

Benefits that Engati brings to telecom companies
