The Self-Service Chatbot is a 42Gears UEM feature that allows end users to manage their enrolled devices without the help of an IT admin. The chatbot is an extension of 42Gears ‘DeepThought’ engine, a virtual chatbot assistant, that functions as a self-service portal. It is a useful feature for end users/admins who use multiple MDM-enrolled devices to perform daily activities. The chatbot allows them to easily track and manage their own devices without relying on the IT admin or having to access UEM console on a laptop or desktop.
How is the Self-Service Portal Helpful?
DeepThought helps minimize IT admin’s interaction while managing employee devices. In other words, using the chatbot, end users can manage their devices enrolled on 42Gears UEM themselves. Following are the functions that can be performed using the portal:
- Locate devices
- Reboot devices remotely
- Wipe devices
- Send messages
- Check account and battery status
42Gears Self-Service chatbot helps users carry out these functions through voice or chat commands. They can simply give oral commands or type specific action instructions to be performed by the bot.
DeepThought Self-Service chatbot is available for all devices. The feature is currently being offered only for 42Gears Enterprise account holders.
