The limits of chatbots in technical customer support

Chatbots have become increasingly popular in recent years and offer an easy way to answer customer enquiries quickly. However, despite their advantages, they often reach their limits, especially when it comes to technical customer support. This is where the Conntac self-service solution shows its strength. Why is our solution better than a chatbot? Let’s look at the limitations of chatbots and why the Conntac self-service solution is the optimal choice for internet service providers.


Limitations of chatbots


Limited problem detection

Chatbots are based on pre-programmed scripts and can only work within these scripts. They usually do not have access to relevant technical parameters that affect the WiFi and the router. This makes it difficult for them to recognise and solve complex technical problems that lie outside their programming. This often leads to frustration among customers who are confronted with unsatisfactory answers.


Lack of depth

Chatbots are often unable to provide in-depth technical instructions. For example, if a customer needs help configuring a router, a chatbot can only provide limited support. The Conntac self-service solution, on the other hand, offers detailed instructions and step-by-step help tailored to the customer’s specific needs. Read more about intuitive user guidance in the blog post.


No individual customisation

Chatbots usually work according to a standard protocol, with no consideration for individual customer problems. Our self-service solution, on the other hand, is flexible and customisable. It offers personalised support and takes the customer’s specific circumstances into account.


Lack of human interaction

Although chatbots are available around the clock, they lack the human touch. Customers often prefer more personalised support, especially for complex technical issues. Our solution offers the possibility to contact customer service directly if necessary. We will show you how to use contact channels more effectively in technical customer support.


Advantages of the Conntac self-service solution
