ChatGPT and generative AI is all the buzz in any industry right now. Those that harness the power of this technology will be able to increase efficiency, consistency, and scale operations at a level we have not experienced since the internet became available to all of us.
AI will never completely replace the agent in the contact center, a human component will always be an integral part of the customer experience. However, with the staffing shortages and increases in customer demand, something must give.
Generative AI is the reprieve the contact center needed; the extra lift that has been sought after for the past 3-5 years. Like with anything, taking a crawl, walk, run approach in the contact center helps to adopt technology at a pace we can digest. If you have spent more than 5 minutes in the contact center, you are familiar with the phrase “drinking from a firehose”!
Here we explore five simple prompts you can use in your contact center right now with zero cost, it is free. Here is our friendly reminder that you need to “train” your ChatGPT instance to think, speak and act like an agent for your company. An example would be “Act as a customer service agent for a healthcare company who mainly interacts with industrial plumbers.” Let’s get started!
#1 Use ChatGPT to Analyze Reviews and Discover Patterns
We went to our InflowCX G2 review page to have a summary of our own reviews.
“Please analyze the G2 reviews we as InflowCX have received and tell me our patterns good and bad. Act as a sentiment analyst for our company:”
Response from ChatGPT:
Based on the provided reviews, there are several patterns that emerge regarding the experiences and opinions of customers who have interacted with InflowCX. Here are some key observations:
- Excellent Customer Support: The most recurring positive aspect mentioned by customers is the exceptional customer support provided by InflowCX. Customers appreciate the responsiveness, quick resolution of issues, and regular follow-ups from the support team. The support staff is described as knowledgeable, dedicated, and proactive in addressing customer needs.
- Expertise and Knowledge: Customers value the expertise and knowledge of InflowCX in the telephony and communications field. The support team is seen as highly skilled, providing guidance, and sharing valuable insights. The presence of a detailed knowledge base is also appreciated by customers.
- Trustworthy Partnership: InflowCX is recognized as a reliable and trustworthy partner. Customers highlight the commitment shown by InflowCX to understand their needs and provide appropriate solutions. The emphasis on building a strong partnership, offering multiple points of contact, and listening to customer feedback stands out as a positive attribute.
- Smooth Migrations and Upgrades: Customers mention successful experiences with system migrations, upgrades, and implementing new features or services. InflowCX is commended for providing a painless and seamless transition, ensuring the phone system remains operational, and delivering on promised services.
Areas for Improvement:
- Initial Hurdles: Some reviews mention a rocky start or a skeptical approach towards InflowCX due to previous negative experiences with other providers. Although InflowCX was able to address these concerns and exceed expectations, ensuring a smooth onboarding experience and instilling confidence from the beginning could help alleviate initial doubts.
- Limited Mention of Pricing: While pricing is not discussed in the provided reviews, it can be helpful for potential customers to have transparent information about the pricing structure and plans offered by InflowCX.
Overall, the patterns indicate that InflowCX has established a strong reputation for providing exceptional customer support, demonstrating expertise, fostering trustworthy partnerships, and delivering smooth system migrations and upgrades.
We are glad that ChatGPT feels the same as our customers, and based on the G2 reviews the areas for improvement are items we have worked on, especially the onboarding. As you can see we were able to take 70+ reviews and summarize our positive and negative trends in a matter of seconds. Think of all the data and trends you can pull using this command!

Utilize this when launching a new product, service offering, or just for the day-to-day of your business. For instance, let’s say you have just introduced chatbots on your website to answer frequently asked questions for your plumbing supply company.
“Act as a customer experience expert who works at an industrial plumbing supply company. We have just launched chatbots to answer FAQs on our website. We would like you to create a 5-question survey to discover how our customers feel about the chatbots.”

#4 Use ChatGPT to Write a Troubleshooting Guide
For this example, we are going to say that we are a pharmacy, and we would like to have a troubleshooting guide written on why the prescription is not available or ready for the customer.
We would like you to act as a pharmacy and write a troubleshooting guide on why a prescription is not filled for the customer.

#5 Have ChatGPT Summarize Lengthy Content or Emails
When it comes to emails, customer inquiries, or even helpful articles, sometimes less is more. So, if there is a lengthy email from a customer (or colleague) that you want the bullet points, just have ChatGPT do the heavy lifting.
For example, we took this article from our website on how outsourcing can help solve the labor shortage and asked for a bulleted version.
Please bullet point this article and what the key takeaways are: (We copy and pasted the entire article here).
- The labor shortage in the contact center industry can actually improve customer experience when efforts are made to address it.
- Contact center leaders often struggle to find time to work on strategic aspects of the business due to focusing on immediate customer needs.
- Technology advancements and outsourcing options allow Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) companies to meet the expectations of their clients.
- Solving the labor shortage requires a combination of hiring more people and automating processes.
- When outsourcing, it’s crucial to find the right fit based on industry expertise, cultural alignment, technology stack, languages spoken, hours of operation, and flexibility of overflow.
- Successful outsourcing partnerships require the BPO partner to understand your industry, align with your technology stack, and share cultural values.
- Outsourcing contact center services can alleviate administrative and operational work in addition to customer contacts.
- Onboarding with a BPO involves transferring necessary information, training processes, CRM integration, escalation procedures, and defining expectations.
- BPOs can handle various tasks, including seasonal calls, emails, social messaging, tier 1 calls, after-hours support, and language options, to improve customer experience.
- BPOs located in various time zones, including near-shore options, offer flexibility and help with workforce management.
- Outsourcing can aid business development by exploring new markets, reaching new customers, and testing customer demand before establishing a physical presence.
- Now is an opportune time to consider outsourcing for contact centers, with a wide range of BPO partners available to meet specific needs and drive efficiency.
- Seeking expert guidance from experienced teams familiar with the contact center industry can help businesses find the right outsourcing solutions tailored to their unique requirements.
