Conversica
Conversica is an excellent tool if you have a large database of potential students, sales leads, or other forms of potential customers/users. It does not replace human interaction, but instead supplements it - allowing your admissions/sales/retention team to spend their time with those individuals that are in most need of assistance - whether that be because they are "hot leads" for a sale, students with a sincere interest, or customers needing assistance beyond the capabilities of an automatic system.

It would be most suitable to help you attain swift conversation flows as you engage with your audiences. The bots are also of indispensable value in handling repetitive tasks around the firm such as automated HR resourcing expeditions or marketing campaigns or any other important but monotonous tasks. I however admit that analyzing the bot's performance is quite complex, have an RPA specialist around.

Pros
Conversica
  • Conversica is great at working low level leads and surfacing those that are in fact interested in your product or service.
  • Conversica is also useful in weeding out leads that are not strong.
  • Since Conversica is sending emails to various prospects, customers and opportunities, it allows sales, account managers, service etc, to focus on other activities, thereby saving time and freeing up resources.

Cons
Conversica
  • The method of standing up campaigns can be a little tedious for administrators because it uses copy/paste of Salesforce Campaign ID instead of just searching for active Salesforce campaigns.
  • Understanding the conversation path options that the AI could take is improving greatly, but can still use some improvements for admin awareness when standing up a new conversation.
  • Understanding what conversation types exist and how they differ from one another is sometimes difficult to self-serv, but the Conversica team is always very good about helping out explaining these.

  • SAP can certainly provide better and more clear documentation on how to customize and deploy the chatbot/use SAP Conversational AI.
  • There is lot less developer community around SAP Conversational AI so it is hard to get help from outside developers and experts on best practices, hacks and existing applications/integrations.
  • It is hard to use SAP Conversational AI outside SAP S/4HANA Cloud, for example on AWS or GCP or in a multi cloud environment.

Tool is extremely powerful but comes with a heavy price tag. As long as we close more than 30 deals with year with Conversica's assistance it will be an easy choice to renew. If we don't we will have to figure out if these funds are best spent in other lead generation places.

Standalone, it's very easy to use. It becomes a little more complicated when you're working with it as an integration in Salesforce.

Never had an issue. SAP CAI shares the same platform as any other product hosted on SAP Cloud Platform (aka BTP) and depends on your hosting (US, Europe, Asia). Maintenance modes are planned and customers are aware of it well in advance in order to mitigate potential impacts on the service offering.

It's a pure SaaS platform hosted on SAP Cloud Platform (aka BTP). The experience is pretty much seamless with minimum loadings or noticeable lags. The hosting depends on your location so you may want to make sure the instance is available on a server close to you, such as the USA, Europe or Asia.

Support Rating
Conversica
Our account manager and support rep have been extremely helpful in helping us get the system where we wanted it. Given our original use case as a lead qualifier, a lot of the conversations needed to be altered or exceptions created in order to provide the customization we needed. Our AM and support rep were able to accommodate most of our requests and were extremely helpful in working with us on a solution.

Great support from the people of SAP Conversational AI as of the community. Sometimes it takes a little while for folks of the SAP Conversational AI team to answer but this has mostly to do with the overload of questions and users the product has. The gold-support channel within Slack that SAP Conversational AI has, is a great help to distinguish more professional usage and therefore more urgent questions.

Conversica
The implementation went smoothly. The only advice I would give for anybody looking to integrate Conversica with Salesforce is to ensure that either you or somebody within your organization has experience with process builder as you'll need to create some processes to force your leads into Salesforce campaigns for the Conversica system to pick them up.

I haven't looked into many other conversational ai products - we received a solid recommendation about using this and have been happy with the process and experience. Price was also pretty good, so we didn't feel a need to shop around on that front. If things change I'll do that homework, but we're happy for now

The platforms have similarities in terms of making the organization more data-driven. However, the use cases are different. SAP Analytics Cloud is used for reporting, deploying dashboards, and scheduling timely delivery of reporting and analytics. SAP Conversational AI is a more front-end product that end users can directly use to navigate the web application better. Both have strengths in their respective areas. Conversational AI is more recent and cutting edge.

Return on Investment
Conversica
  • We have found that each conversation type has a different ROI. Some are very hard to report off of, whereas others are easy. this is because some are more built around building awareness of what we offer where they may not purchase it for months down the line.
  • Has helped us to save on salaries. If staff were to try to do the same thing our AI Assistant does, it would take them many hours to be as successful.

  • The impact has been very positive for our business objectives. Through the chatbot, our clients can have an immediate response to any of their requests without the need of an intervention of a person or without the use of the telephone or email. Customer satisfaction has been much higher.
