Article Summary

What is OpenAI?

The OpenAI integration is a conversational model powered by artifical intelligence that can help you automate your help-desk.

Every time a customer sends a help-desk message via your Members Portal, OpenAI goes through your FAQ articles and finds the best answer. You can think of it as your own support agent, ready to answer customer queries in a matter of seconds any day, any time.


If OpenAI cannot find an answer in your FAQ articles, the relevant department manager receives a notification to manually tackle the request, as they usually would.

How to integrate OpenAI

Integrating OpenAI is a three-process:

1. Create an API key in OpenAI.
2. Enable OpenAI on the Admin Panel.
3. Test OpenAI's answers before going live.

All you need to get started is a paying OpenAI account and some FAQ articles in Nexudus. From there, you enable the integration on the Admin Panel and test the answers customers will get from OpenAI. Once you're happy with the way OpenAI answers questions, you can go ahead and enable it for your help-desk.
