How to integrate AI into your customer service workflow?

Use the website for ChatGPT, Claude or Gemini

You can use ChatGPT, Claude or Gemini directly through their websites. You’ll typically have to create an account and you’ll get instant access to a free version of one of their LLMs, but if you want a more advanced LLM, you’ll have to pay. For example, right now OpenAI offers GPT3.5 for free, but you can pay to upgrade to GPT4.

We’ve found this option is best for individuals who only need to use one platform and only need to use it by themselves.

If that’s you, then you can also use PromptDrive.ai as your prompt management tool. We have an unlimited free plan for individual users and a free chrome extension that will allow you to access your entire prompt library without the need to switch between tabs.

But if you want to save money, use different LLMs and collaborate on prompts and chat responses, then you might benefit from using PromptDrive.

Use PromptDrive.ai

PromptDrive.ai is a platform designed specifically for teams to collaborate on ChatGPT, Claude and Gemini prompts and workflows. It’s particularly useful for businesses or organizations where multiple team members need to work together on projects involving one or more LLMs.

An additional benefit is that you’ll be able to take advantage of AI for a fraction of the cost of using their native websites. You do need to add your own API keys, the process to get one is straightforward and we have guides to help you get started.

Final word

ChatGPT, Claude and Gemini are powerful tools when it comes to customer support. By using carefully crafted prompts, you can generate helpful, accurate, and personalized responses to customer inquiries, complaints, and feedback. 

Remember, while ChatGPT, Claude, and Gemini are helpful, they should be used as supplements. You should never rely on them in place of human judgment and interaction. Review and refine the generated responses often to ensure they match your brand’s voice, beliefs, and policies.
