Another use case would be a renowned instructor-led academy was getting a lot of queries over live chat window, on how one can start their career to become a Microsoft Business Developer, what would be the career path to gain the knowledge, related study material, etc. Responding to student queries were taking much time and consume their maximum bandwidths of the academy customer service team.
1- There was a lag in reply as the service agents were not able to answer all student's queries at the same time.
2- The students were not happy as they were not getting replies in real-time.
3- The academy's credibility was degrading in the market due to delay or no response to all students
4- Also all above were impacting on the academy revenue
