Customer support is hard. You have to deal with a range of questions, complaints, and requests from your customers, all while having to provide accurate and timely answers that satisfy their needs and expectations. And, you have to keep your costs low and your team happy.

But what if there was a better way? What if there was a way to provide customer support that was fast, accurate, and convenient? What if there was a way to provide customer support that used the power of conversational AI and your own support content?

That’s where Fin comes in. Fin is Intercom’s new breakthrough AI bot powered by GPT-4, OpenAI’s most advanced AI model. When Intercom released the preview version of Fin in March of 2023, it was one of the first commercial examples of what the GPT-4 engine had to offer. Fin can understand complex queries, ask clarifying questions, and provide safe and trustworthy answers based on your existing support content. Intercom claims Fin can resolve up to 50% of support inquiries automatically.

Intercom is so confident in Fin’s ability to resolve inquiries, they are actually pricing the service based on successful resolutions. At $0.99 per AI resolution, the value proposition is that when the bot is able to contain the support interaction, then businesses save money on staffing for human interactions.

How does Fin Work?

Unlike other AI bots that require training, configuration, or predefined paths, Fin works out of the box. All you need to do is point Fin to your Intercom Articles, Zendesk Help Center, or any public URL that contains your support content. Fin will automatically ingest your content and use it to answer customer questions in real time, across any channel.

Fin also gives you full control and visibility over its responses. You can create custom answers for important questions, monitor Fin conversations in the Inbox, and set resolution limits and notifications. Fin can also seamlessly hand over complex issues to your human support team, ensuring that your customers always get the best possible experience.
