As mentioned in pros and cons, it depends on the use cases. Most of the normal chatbot use cases can be handled by ODA. If you want to build a chatbot with menu style or conversation style (it is not straight forward but it can be done), ODA can be perfect. If use cases are to also include AI with emotional intelligence to make conversational more interactive and also be able to detect through AI engine automatically what a person would like to do or perform or ask, then ODA may not fit for it. If you also are looking for virtual agents through tighter IVR integration then ODA may not be right. There are a few limitations around the number of words in the text to voice feature.

It recognizes pattern of behavior for more refined results with each implementation under machine learning. Read full review Cons 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. Adrian Cohn

Read full review Our clients have reported that upon integration with Siri for voice commands, the results are pretty obvious (basic) Nd the conversation is unnatural. The languages it supports are very limited. Read full review Usability
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.

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.

I selected Oracle Digital Assistant against all other digital assistant platforms as this platform works like a charm with any Oracle application. It integrates well with Oracle Integration Cloud. Th
e new beta version has an inbuilt conversation builder which can be used to build conversation without the YAML code.
