Once upon a time, not too long ago, customer service meant long queues, physically standing in line or holding on phone calls with truly maddening hold music. You’d wait, sometimes for what felt like an eternity, just to get a simple question answered. But in this age, change is the only constant. Enter the era of AI chatbots – with Microsoft’s Power Virtual Agents leading the parade. And just as radio forever altered advertising, this new wave of AI chatbots is revolutionizing the very foundation of customer service.
