No Chatbot is a fully automated solution for lead capture. ArtiBot is part lead capture tool, part payment processor, and all AI-powered efficiency.

ArtiBot and Chatbot have a lot of great features to consider when you’re in the market for a good chatbot tool. The way that they’re designed caters to different types of markets in some cases, but they’re still comparable enough that we wanted to take a look.

90%of your audience expects you to have some kind of online customer service portal. The more robust, the better. If you choose to integrate just a chatbot, that’s better than nothing. However, you should always choose more when you can. Both ArtiBot and make that pretty easy.

ArtiBot is an AI chatbot that focuses on service brands. It has many of the features that you’d expect from a chatbot to help capture leads, collect payments, and more. While it does give you the chance to embed it anywhere, some of the other features are almost too complex to set up with limited tech knowledge.

ArtiBot also takes a lot more work to manage than the Chatbot, which is fully automated from the start. You don’t have to answer chats, intervene, or even manage it because the software is programmed to take care of itself. And when you choose white-glove setup, you’ll be certain that it’s programmed correctly. offers a fully customizable chatbot that has all the features you need, including easy integration, custom canned responses, integrations with your CRM and other tools, access to rich reports and analytics to monitor your chats, and more. Plus, we’ll even set it all up for you so that it’s hands-off from the start.

While ArtiBot does offer simplicity and focus on key features,’s Chatbot just does more. You can create a robust knowledge base and FAQs and integrate it all with Google Analytics and the rest of your tech stack to streamline your communications with ease.

“Simple way to start a great client experience. There are a lot of Chat options available, but this was a no brainer for us because of our great experience with as a company. Everything they do is focused on simplicity. Stuff just works. They make everything easy and have focused on hiring great people, which is evident by the way they treat us as a customer and the people that they chat with on our behalf.”
Brian Waller
“Love Chat! There is no way that I could staff a feature like that in house with my small business. makes the chat feature available around the clock. I am a lawyer and this feature is great for clients who are nervous or shy about making that initial phone call, or who are up thinking about the problem that they need help with outside of business hours. The Website Chat also integrates perfectly with my CRM/case management software. It has really been a boost to my business. I have tried other companies. is the best!”
