Pypestream overview

What is Pypestream?

Pypestream is a conversational AI platform that enables businesses in insurance, healthcare, financial services, travel, eCommerce, and other industries to improve customer engagement using a patented messaging carrier. It enables customer service teams to connect multiple applications via APIs and facilitate transactional, proactive, and reactive workflows.

Pypestream works alongside Dovetail AI, which implements aspects of natural language understanding technology, such as multiple classifiers, semantic search, and tone, emoji, and sentiment analysis to automate conversations. The platform allows customers to utilize the IVR-to-messaging module to deflect calls into messages and AI to escalate conversations to live agents based on customer needs. Businesses can also customize the messaging platform interface with surveys, graphs, carousels, videos, maps, and more.

The self-service design module allows business analysts, developers, conversational designers, and copywriters to build customizable chat solutions and deploy them across multiple channels including Facebook Messenger, Whatsapp, and Amazon Alexa. Pypestream also provides a conversational AI deployment program, which lets businesses create user personas, perform empathy mapping, and track results through heatmaps, success metrics, and text analysis.

Great experience

Pros
We began our journey with Pypestream before many of the advanced features were GA. Once live, the services team guided us through a quick and easy migration, promoting our capabilities from keyword based scripting to advanced NLU. The results were great and I was impressed with the painless process as very little training data was needed. Great product and extremely knowledgeable practitioners at Pypestream. Additionally, the OOTB call center experience was top notch and exactly what we needed.

Cons
At the time we began with Pypestream, a developer UI did not exist. Working in files required a bit of a learning curve for my team. During our engagement we partnered with Pypestream to design an intuitive UX. I’m eager to see what has been developed.

Our overall experience with Pypestream so far has been great. We are not yet live, but should be up and running in the next couple of weeks. The biggest impact has been the Pypestream and Docusign integration. I believe this unique feature is going to solve so many problems for so many companies.

Pros
The docusign integration was a HUGE accomplishment and is allowing us to make our document signing more efficient and streamlined. We are going to be closing a huge gap in the time forms typically take to be mailed , signed and returned.

Cons
The only con is that it seemed to take a huge amount of work for our IT team on the back-end systems. That may not be the fault of the software itself, but maybe the software our company currently has is making things more difficult than we originally anticipated.

Sleek User Experience, easy to deploy for business users and citizen development

All interactions with Pypestream team members have been great, their customer success team go above and beyond to ensure the success of Pypestream deployments.

Pros
Easy to build out a basic bot, good resources and documentation about general features, knowledgeable and helpful staff. Quick to deploy and easy to get non technical users started on developing. Proactive team who are interested in new feature requests and helping make the software more user friendly.

Cons
Difficult to control access and no current ability to control publishing new chatbots, so any developer in our company could publish to any Pypestream chatbot. Not very comprehensive reporting/analytics functionalities out of the box but this is improving over time

Flexible, highly customizable product with stellar support team

Overall, working with Pypestream has been a great experience. The team has truly gone above and beyond to make sure the product meets our needs, and to help us come up with ideas/solutions for improving the automated experience. They are true business partners and experts at what they do.

Pros
The best thing about Pypestream's bot is that it is incredibly flexible and can easily integrate with many other platforms and APIs. They are constantly building in new features/functionality, and so far have been able to help us customize solutions for just about every business need. If there is a vision you have, or something you want the bot to automate, Pypestream will 9 out of 10 times be able to make it happen.

Cons
Pypestream has evolved a lot since I first began, so many of the features/capabilities that I felt were missing have been added. For example, the ability to add/change keywords in the NLU (natural language understanding) solution was a big step forward, though it is still somewhat technical and ill-advised to do without considerable training. It's also something that some clients may not want control over, but if you do want that control, there is definitely a learning curve. Also, though Pypestream allows for very granular tracking, their data/reporting solution could use some refining. I think it is on their road map to provide more sophisticated/real-time dashboards, but that is one feature that I still think they can improve on.

I would like to commend Pypestream on their customer service. The Pypestream staff have been a huge help and understood our needs through the entire process.

Pros
The software is great. The product was easy for the staff and our customers to use. We upgraded the virtual assistant in late January to add an escalation to a live customer service rep and we could not be more happy with the tool. Also, our Customer Satisfaction scores are through the roof.

Cons
We have no cons with the software. Our customers and staff have all been very happy with the tool.
