Before we know more about how to build a bot, here’s a fun fact. Even though chatbots have been around since 1966, they still are relatively new to the world of automation. We use chatbots almost everyday, but I reckon half of them even realise that they’re making use of this technology.
Making people aware of this might be easy, but the hard part comes when someone wants to build a chatbot for their website, with very little knowledge of them. No matter how easy chatbot building platforms have made it for businesses to construct a bot, still a fair amount of understanding of how this works is necessary to derive its full potential.
A lot of of our users come to us with queries like how chatbots exactly work,how to build them, how to integrate, what are the different paths and so on.
That is why our Product Manager Lead took time out to address all your queries and give you a detailed explanations about our services.
