“Using Apple Business Chat creates an easy, secure connection to our service center, where clients dip in and out of the conversation at their own pace and avoid call wait times. The service also incorporates Apple’s new Chat Suggest feature, which offers the option to start a messaging conversation when a customer taps to call HSBC. Cost of revenue decreased by 4% to $907,000 in the three months ended March 31, 2011, from $948,000 in the comparable period in 2010. This decrease is primarily attributable to a decrease in total compensation and related costs for customer service and network support personnel of approximately $46,000. Net cash used in operating activities was $3.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2014 and consisted primarily of a net loss, a decrease in accounts payable, and increases in accounts receivable, prepaid expenses and accrued expenses partially offset by non-cash expenses related to ASC 718-10, amortization of intangibles and depreciation and an increase in prepaid expenses and decreases in accrued expenses and deferred revenue, partially offset by an increase in accounts payable. Revenue from our Business segment accounted for 93% and 94% of total revenue for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015, respectively.
This survey was commissioned by LivePerson and conducted online by independent research firm Survata, which interviewed 5,002 global consumers across six countries (US, UK, Australia, Germany, France, and Japan) ages 18 and older between April 7, 2017 and April 20, 2017. Respondents received no cash compensation for their participation. Our research found that many customers, particularly in the US, don’t care whether a bot has a personality or name, but consumers in other countries do. If you regularly “train” your bot there will be fewer lapses every day. This is particularly true for millennials: More than half believe bots are there to give them faster and better service as opposed to simply being a cost-savings tool for the company. A higher number of consumers now perceive bots as there to help them get better and faster service versus earlier surveys we conducted.
