Flow XO allows you to build, host, and manage chatbots across multiple channels, including Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, Telegram, Web, Slack, and SMS. Since it is a no-code solution, users can easily create chatbots for various use cases, such as virtually welcoming users, answering questions, providing customer support, accepting payments, and more.
Flow XO is a no-code automation product that allows you to create multiple workflows, build chatbots and host them across various platforms, in turn, helping you communicate and engage with your customers.
Flow XO's dashboard has a pretty basic interface with an overview of your chatbots, conversational flows, and the last interactions. When creating a new chatbot flow, you can choose to use one of the 11 readymade templates or build your flow from scratch. Either way, adding a bot and setting up a flow is pretty simple. However, Flow XO does not provide a visual flow builder, unlike some of its competitors.
With Flow XO, you can build a chatbot on channels like Facebook, WhatsApp, Telegram, Slack, SMS, and websites. This allows you to provide users with an omnichannel experience. What's nice about Flow XO is that they provide many marketing tools businesses can use to engage with their audience. Some of them include Facebook and website widgets, landing pages, auto-reply, and custom URLs.
Flow XO's chatbot can answer simple questions by identifying keywords within the conversation, provide multiple-choice answers, gather information about customers, pre-filter leads, accept payments, and even provide light-hearted entertainment for your customers.
Flow XO has a reporting dashboard that provides basic analytics like the number of users, the number of messages sent/received, and the top-performing flows. However, information like the open rate, click-through rate, conversion rate, and user retention is unavailable. Further, you cannot do any kind of optimization through A/B testing. That being said, you can integrate Flow XO with Google Analytics to gather more data about the chatbot.
Overall, the platform is affordable compared to other chatbot solutions on the market, works on multiple platforms, is easy to set up, and requires no coding/programming expertise.
Flow XO will not be a good fit if you're a large-scale enterprise looking to build sophisticated workflows or automate your live customer support conversations. It is also not ideal for businesses that have high-level security requirements (online banking) or deal with sensitive information collection.
