How Does Kian Work?
Kian is a powerful artificial intelligence-powered virtual assistant that helps prospective buyers while shopping for a new Kia model. Kian was developed with CarLabs, Inc. Kian is able to offer information about the Kia lineup, inventory at local dealerships, current specials and offers and comparisons to vehicles by other brands.
Kian can be accessed through Facebook Messenger here. The chatbot is fun, conversational and, most importantly, knowledgeable. Its innovative design allows consumers to ask even difficult and specific questions. While chatting with Kian, shoppers can even ask to speak with a live representative for more information.
The innovative Kian allows consumers to have a personal assistant that can instantly analyze millions of pieces of data, giving you a quick and specific answer to your question.
“As more shoppers use the system, it learns to anticipate questions, provides more specific answers and gets smarter over time. Having access to that level of shopper data is a powerful tool for understanding and serving customers better than previously possible.”
– Martin Schmitt, CEO and Co-Founder of CarLabs, Inc.
