Qualify leads on your digital channels and route them directly to the correct sales representatives for follow-up meetings. After collecting all the necessary information for qualified site visitors, the chatbot creates a lead and a contact, assigns an appropriate lead score, and then creates a Pulse or Interaction activity.
