“97 percent correct match rate”

With our new digital assistant, Selim, we are delighted to be able to provide a faster and more efficient service to our customers. With this solution, we increase our operational efficiency both at the point of service offering and in sales transactions, while ensuring that our customers can easily purchase services and products that meet their individual needs. With Selim, we not only provide better service to our existing customers, but also increase the number of our customers. Digital assistant Selim answered nearly 3 million questions in more than 1 million inquiries so far. As a result, we witnessed a sharp drop of up to 34 percent in the questions sent to our digital channels for information purposes.  In this way, we are now able to provide a much more efficient service to our customers through our call centers. Selim's success of 97 percent correct matching in word-based searches also reveals the success of this solution we developed. We will increasingly continue our investments in an effort to render our digital assistant Selim more equipped and functional”.
