The difference is a virtual no-brainer.

While chatbots and virtual assistants may appear to be similar technologies, they are very different. Chatbots are built on early-gen technology, with simple functionality that often frustrates customers. With conversational AI advancing leaps and bounds, end-user expectations are growing for a more intuitive, natural experience. Enter Clinc’s virtual assistants. These cutting-edge and pre-built solutions are a big step up from a chatbot, helping you tackle the most challenging customer conversations, automatically.
