PRESS RELEASE FROM
September 08, 2017

Palo Alto, CA (September 8, 2017) - Technology is playing an ever-important role in the beauty industry, proving itself to be increasingly key from an experiential and a customer service perspective online and offline. Leading that charge is artificial intelligence (AI) driven chatbots. Today, Flawless by Gabrielle Union, a prestige haircare line specifically targeted at women with textured hair, launched its Flawless hairbot via Facebook’s Messenger to deliver more customized and personalized content for customers.

The Flawless by Gabrielle Union Facebook Messenger bot was built in partnership with Botworx.ai, an AI powered platform for authentic conversations. The Messenger bot uses Botworx.ai’s AI engine to deliver Flawless by Gabrielle Union customers a highly personalized and engaging experience. Customers are asked to participate in a hair profiler, answering a series of questions from hair color and diameter to their hair’s damage level and daily haircare maintenance. At the end of the profile, tailored product recommendations are suggested for each user. Customers can then explore their product selection and purchase their Flawless by Gabrielle Union products online. Customers can also share their Flawless by Gabrielle Union hair product recommendations with friends increasing brand awareness with viral distribution.

“We’re excited to leverage this technology to create quick and natural conversational interactions,” said Vincent Davis, CEO of Flawless Beauty, LLC. “We are constantly looking at new ways to provide greater choice and flexibility, offering features like the Flawless hairbot alongside other existing digital offerings while continuing to deliver a high level of service across all channels. Botworx.ai has created a platform that allows us to provide richer, more varied conversations that ensure customers get exactly what they want out of the Flawless experience."

Through the Flawless by Gabrielle Union hairbot, Botworx.ai integrates its Sentiment Engine, a tool that automatically rates the overall tone and feeling of everything from product raves and reviews to candid opinions and concerns, offering real time insight into the brand’s reputation. Sentiment analysis can be a rich source of information about your company, products, campaigns, and overall customer experience.

The Sentiment Engine evaluates the following data within the Flawless by Gabrielle Union hairbot:

Pattern Detection: Using content collected on Facebook, Flawless can identify patterns in customer behaviors, detect early product feedback, and identify indicators that can drive innovation.

Brand management and User Control: Botworx.ai’s AI engine monitors brand pages for positive, negative or neutral comments/posts and then automatically direct messages that fan/customer via the branded chatbot, allowing brands to better control communication and create a more one-to-one customer engagement.

“AI-driven chatbots and the fashion and beauty markets are a perfect match,” said Mahi de Silva, CEO of Botworx.ai. “Though there is a lot happening behind the scenes already, there’s no question this technology will have an even deeper impact in the near future. AI chatbots are increasingly capable of engaging in robust conversations about complex topics. More importantly, it is the next evolution of marketing automation, one that allows brands and marketers to create personalized communications at scale like never before. Botworx.ai helps brands leverage the power of AI to build smart chatbots to drive awareness, to drive engagement and drive commerce.”​
