Conversation Marketing platform Insent.AI integrated its service with Microsoft Teams, notifying users when customers and prospects are ready to chat. The conversation is conducted within Teams via an MS Teams AppSource app.
“With the Insent app for Teams, your team can get notifications for the incoming chats from your buyers, view detailed visitor insights to understand the context and strike up more personalized conversations, and make the necessary hand-offs inside your chosen MS channels,” blogged Insent Digital Marketer Aatharsha Jey.
Insent describes itself as an “integration first platform.” According to Jey ”integrations should be planned and carried out in a way that does not ask people to change their behaviors in order to adopt a new tool.”
Insent offers “Advanced Enterprise-grade routing,” which directs conversations to the CRM account owners. If the account owner is not available, calls are routed via a set of fallback rules based on time of day and location to other reps or the chatbot.
Insent emphasizes the value of “human-first conversations” with bots serving as a backup channel:
“Chatbots were meant to be your second line of defense, built to support marketing and sales when your team isn’t available – not pretend to be human.”Insent Website
@ Mentions allow users to include additional staff in the conversation. It is not necessary to register individual users. Simply tagging them directs Insent to create a user profile based upon MS Teams data.
Insent also offers integrations with Salesforce, HubSpot, Marketo, and Slack.
