The University of Hertfordshire wanted to work with an agency who could build a Facebook Messenger chatbot to engage with their students.
The chatbot needed to allow prospective students to talk to the university on their own terms:
The university wanted a solution that was available 24/7, provided consistently accurate information and increase open day registrations.
We started by picking a platform that could integrate with appropriate systems and provide the best experience for prospective students.
Conversation strings were mapped out, these then went through an iterative process to receive sign off.
The Chatbot was built using Chatfuel with AI integrations from Google Dialogflow to enable the bot to fully understand the context and intent of each user conversation.
Further integrations were made with Campus Management and Gecko forms to allow students to book an open day or campus tour within the chatbot.
In the first 6 months from launch, Jet handled over 2.6k conversations with prospective students and parents. The most popular being accommodation questions, further information on specific courses and open day details.
The University of Hertfordshire benefited from a 10% increase in open day bookings, thanks to Jet.
