With Sprinklr’s artificial intelligence (AI) capability, Smart Response Recommendations automatically suggest relevant replies, and Smart Alerts notify agents when the volume of care issues spike.

Brands can also gain insight into the quality of their customer care by using Sprinklr to automatically send a CSAT survey on Google’s Business Messages after the conversation is closed.
