Obtaining a Quote
There are components to Convert2Client that can be implemented directly into your website.
These include the Convert2Client Chatbot and the Quote Calculator.
The chatbot component steps through the process by asking questions that can responded to by typing or by voice commands should a microphone be enabled.
A series of questions will follow which will enable the chatbot to compile a breakdown of the legal costs.
Once you have answered all of the questions, this pop-up will show the breakdown of legal fees. A copy will also be emailed to you.
The bottom of the pop-up will display the answers to the questions posed by the chatbot.
Also on the pop-up box, the quote can be instructed by clicking Instruct this quote.
An email is sent confirming the instruction has been received.
