Customer experience management platform, Sprinklr, has integrated with Google’s Business Messages, enabling brands to respond to messages from customers who find their business listing on Google. 

Mobile searchers can message the brand directly from the listing and brands can capture, route and resolve the message alongside customer inquiries from other channels within Sprinklr. 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.
