    The BMC Helix Remedyforce Chatbot Integration

    Using pre-programmed scripts and common questions as its guidelines, the chatbot can help visitors to your website find the information they are looking for, such as pricing, products, contact information and more.

No need to fire up a new application. 


    Why should customers use the BMC Helix Remedyforce Chatbot? 


    There are a wide variety of uses for a chatbot, particularly once you start incorporating multiple, specialized chatbots across your entire organization. Internally, a chatbot specific to Facilities to help with service and support requests would be an entirely different chatbot than a client-facing one that answers support and pricing structure questions. 


    Once you’ve narrowed down the best uses for your chatbots, you can decide to use BMC Helix Remedyforce Chatbot or go with a third-party. Having an integrated chatbot into your currently existing BMC Remedyforce account simplifies the process and expands its capabilities. Using the BMC Helix Remedyforce Chatbot allows you to take advantage of its cognitive search abilities across both unstructured and structured data. It also can access multiple knowledge data bases.

You can also execute custom processes and workflows while automating training for your chatbots within the Digital Workplace Catalog. This makes servicing delivery simple. Because your chatbot and BMC Remedyforce are deeply intertwined, it’s simple to analyze and optimize the chatbot’s performance over time. Using end-user surveys and Smart Reporting, you can tailor your chatbot to be more precise and helpful over time. 



    BMC Helix Remedyforce Chatbot is the starting point of bringing cognitive services to your end users so they can request services and knowledge when and where they need it.  This helps automate some of the Level 0/Level 1 Service Requests and all of this is powered leveraging IBM Watson Assistant.

    Because the BMC Helix Chatbot was built by BMC developers, the interface will be familiar to anyone who currently uses BMC Remedyforce.
