SAN MATEO, Calif., Nov. 04, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SurveyMonkey (Nasdaq: SVMK) today announced it has launched SurveyMonkey Einstein Bot on Salesforce AppExchange, empowering customers to capture real-time feedback from conversational bot interactions. The SurveyMonkey Einstein Bot caters to brands who want to improve their customer experience programs by offering a simple chatbot interaction to collect feedback.
