Salesforce Einstein Bots – A Brief Overview

What is an Einstein Bot?  

Einstein Bot comprises two words – Einstein and Bot – that combine to give it its true meaning. While the latter refers to traditional chatbots, Einstein is a Salesforce-powered AI technology that supports multiple Salesforce products and features. It’s a set of services that brings artificial intelligence to CRM to help improve customer service and experience.   

Einstein Bot differs from a regular chatbot as it allows both manual automation of chat responses and artificial but intelligently-generated responses. These bots are available on Salesforce’s Enterprise, Performance, Unlimited, and Developer editions.
