New Communication Conquers the Supply Chain

0170

Chatbots have now become standardized communication instruments and are being used with greater frequency in the end client sector in particular. But they can also be a useful aid in logistics. An essential feature of a smart chatbot is the ability to understand requests that are spoken or written by the user in human language. The user uses common messenger services such as Telegram or Slack to submit requests.

What’s so special here is that users do not have to learn a new language or even a new program to be able to send requests to a virtual assistant. Users address their issues by simply sending messages to chatbots that are connected to the system – as if they were communicating with a “real” person. In this way, the communication between the user and the system (e.g., WMS system) is completely revolutionized.

Features

  • Information chatbot: this chatbot acts as an information assistant in the warehouse, providing information about production, service for order status, inventory, performance, instructions etc.
  • Appointment bot: reserve a pickup in the warehouse/shop, ramp time window booking, handover date, doorman/truck registration etc.
  • Inventory bot: assumes responsibility for and carries out inventories or counts in the warehouse, shop, and much more
  • Order bot: carries out availability requests and reorders products in the client service area.
  • Form bot: this bot helps to digitalize form-based processes (e.g., dangerous goods check, pallet note, visitor badge etc.).
