Support teams face numerous challenges like a constantly growing number of customer queries or the need for personalized messaging. 

All of that combined with the focus on maintaining high quality of service looks like a mission impossible. And even if possible, then extremely expensive because of hiring costs. 

That’s why our team of developers came up with the idea of building a fully conversational AI. The goal was to make it capable of handling conversations with customers using artificial intelligence, natural language processing (NLP), and machine learning (ML).

Please welcome—

Lyro, a milestone in customer service automation.

Now, coming back to the main topic, let’s answer the fundamental question—

What is Lyro?

Starting from scratch, Lyro is the first conversational AI chatbot designed for automating customer service and support in small and medium businesses. It’s one of the Tidio AI features that provides the latest solutions for your customer support optimization. 

The power of Lyro lies in the Claude LLM (large language model which empowers the bot) and Tidio’s in-house AI mechanism that makes customers’ queries understandable for the bot. 

Claude has been created by an AI research company—Anthropic. The main purpose of this model is to provide helpful conversational assistance for the users. The model is capable of a wide variety of conversational and text processing tasks while maintaining a high degree of reliability and predictability at the same time. 

Thanks to this technically advanced tech stack, Lyro is able to deliver personalized support to customers, like a human service agent would. On top of that, the bot leads the conversations in a natural way and doesn’t require any training from your support team.

Regular chatbots vs. Lyro

First of all, is Lyro a typical chatbot?

The short answer is No

It’s something more. 

Regular chatbots rely on pre-designed conversational paths while talking with users. Lyro uses artificial intelligence and natural language processing to understand questions and have human-like conversations with customers. It can also ask additional questions to provide more details and make sure customers are satisfied.

Unlike the regular chatbot, Lyro doesn’t require any training from your support agents. All you need to do is to activate this bot on your website, and it will start answering your customers’ questions right away, being a 24/7 support for your clients.
