Real-time Support and Automation
Probably one of the most cumbersome tasks when it comes to customer management. Heading into 2019, Customer Support is going to be a big differentiator that will make or break your client base; and as it so happens, support plays a huge part in it. 24/7 Support is something every customer expects but few organizations can provide. With a virtual assistant in place, you can automate all your support tasks and provide 24/7 services to your customers. Virtual assistants understand natural language and can respond to basic and complex queries on its own. With its machine learning capabilities, your virtual assistant can grow to understand your business and help you delegate redundant tasks to an automated bot
Quite self-explanatory, when you automate your support functions, a big chunk of your manpower can be leveraged for more meaningful tasks. A company without a virtual assistant probably has a number of employees dedicated to customer support. Their day-to-day tasks involve handling the Support channels and answering customer queries. This works until your company grows, customers increase, and you find yourself with a number of bottlenecks. But if you have a virtual assistant in place, all of these tasks can be automated, your workforce liberated, and your customer support on top of things at all times, regardless of scale. You can then put the extra resources to good use and put them where they are actually needed.
Optimize Sales and Up-selling

But if you use a virtual assistant, you can solve all your support issues in one go (as we mentioned) and focus your efforts on up-selling your services and products. With a SuiteCRM, all your leads and customers are automatically sent to a single unified platform and a virtual assistant can automatically schedule follow-up emails, gated offers, and so much more.
