If you wish to quickly deploy multilingual chatbots without having to worry about infrastructure and model training, go for Amazon Lex. It is one of the best general-purpose conversational AI solutions in the market. The cherry on the cake is that it also seamlessly integrates with other AWS services, so you would be good there. Performance monitoring is very easy with AWS. It has support for both text and integration. If you are not a pro-NLP expert, Amazon Lex will make your job really easy.

Cons

Drift

  • Whenever there have been challenges with the product, the team has always been hungry to fix the issues that we raise.
  • In-platform reporting on conversion metrics can be improved. For example, it's not possible to report on business vs non business email capture rate (currently reported by our CSM every week), and to get the most detail about meetings that have been booked, you have to export data and review in Sheets/Excel. Drift responds quickly, and they're already working on this... so by the time you read this review, the reports will probably be fully functional in the platform.

    Usability

    Amazon AWS

    Easy to deploy and very easy to integrate with other AWS services. Automating simple tasks is also very easy with Amazon Lex. We never had NLP experts in our team, but we were still able to deploy chatbots for our support functions with minimal issues. Native integration with other AWS services like S3 and Lambda has been of paramount importance.

    Drift

    The customer-facing usability is great, but managing drift from the back end can be challenging at times. This is mainly due to slow loading speeds when it comes to editing or viewing routing. Coupling this with no autosave function, changes are hard to make and can easily be lost.

    Support Rating

    Amazon AWS

    Community support for Amazon Lex is good. Also, since it is an AWS service, the support has a similar standard as other AWS services. We have had a couple of instances of our bots weren't able to interact with our web apps. We reached out to the support team, and they were able to resolve our issue in no time. The documentation from the Amazon Lex team also makes creating chatbots a breeze.

    The Drift team has been remarkably responsive to me. From support reps available in-app, to my account manager committed to my long-term success, to regular connections and interactions with their leadership team. They have been wholeheartedly committed to answering every question and solving every issue so that we can succeed as a team, and I can succeed as a marketer!

    I have used a few different chat platforms, the most popular one being Intercom. They both have some similarities in functionalities and features. I have had more success with Drift and the calendar link/automation. I love the fact that a prospect can easily find my calendar link and book a demo without needing to speak with me.
