What does shop assistant do?

A digital assistant is trained around the store's products and their unique features to provide real-time customer assistance. It can perform a range of tasks, including answering FAQs, giving personalised shopping advice and product recommendations, and checking product availability. The assistant offers convenience and helps shoppers make a buying decision, for example, by showing product ratings and reviews left by other buyers.
