Edited Excerpts:

On the inspiration behind starting Superbot in 2018 and the journey till now

Our journey with Superbot began as a response to a challenge we faced while managing PinnacleWorks, our parent company in the education sector. Despite our diligent efforts and the deployment of dedicated counsellors, we encountered costly delays in addressing student queries, leading to missed opportunities and reduced conversion rates. This prompted us to conceive an automated chat agent capable of comprehending the sentiment behind customer queries and responding with human-like empathy. Initially designed for the education sector, Superbot quickly gained traction, becoming the preferred solution for round-the-clock customer query management among over 100 educational brands within a year. However, we soon realized that there was a need to proactively engage customers to boost ROI. This prompted us to evolve Superbot into an AI-powered conversation Agent, proficient in intelligent dialogues over telephony channels. As we transitioned Superbot into a versatile SaaS product, we expanded its capabilities to cater to diverse industries, addressing various calling needs from conducting large-scale surveys to handling critical tasks like lead verification and payment reminders. One of its standout features is serving as a 24/7 incoming helpline, guaranteeing zero wait time for user inquiries. This significantly reduces average handling time (AHT) and enhances customer satisfaction (CSAT). Today, Superbot is capable of managing over one million calls per day and supports 10 plus languages, with ongoing efforts to include more. It has become instrumental in facilitating seamless communication for businesses across India, and I am immensely proud of the journey Ankit Ruia and I (Sarvagya Mishra) have undertaken to make this vision a reality.
