We’re proud to say that Monmouthshire were the first council to deploy IntelAgent. Always striving to be innovative in their approach to their Digital Transformation, they decided that a Welsh speaking chatbot would be the best way to engage with their constituents.
Since the launch we have had an overwhelmingly positive response from the citizens of Monmouth, featuring in many local press articles and social media posts.
At Monmouthshire County Council, we take around 50,000 phone calls a year. These are sometimes vulnerable people, who really need to talk to a person helping them with complex problems.
That chatbot is able to deal with some of the lower level queries, freeing up our staff to deal with more complex problems, really helping vulnerable people.
Monty has managed to handle 36,405 users in 6 months of full launch, in which time we have processed 232,839 customer messages.
83% of all waste queries are being handled automatically by the bot. With waste making up 54% of all queries this means that we have already given 100s of hours of time back to the contact centre.
