Artificial intelligence-based chatbot platform Haptik entered the market in 2013 as a conversation platform when the term chatbot had not become commonplace yet. Over the years, with the advent of technologies such as text-to-speech, automatic speech recognition and natural language processing, the domain of chatbots has come to the forefront. Chatbots are helping users book cabs, schedule movies and answer all kinds of queries. Also, marketing initiatives such as customised promotional offers can be automated by chatbots which helps an organisation save money and time, thus improving the ROI by up to 30%.
