What we did

Phase 1

The ApexTech experts chose an AWS technology stack to develop a Conversational AI bot and deliver an exceptional experience for the end-users. The client benefited from the enterprise-grade architecture and technology that supports secure data integration, including AWS Cognito to protect the edge.

Phase 2

Our team decided to use such AWS services as Lambda, IoT Core, and Dynamo to deliver real-time experience and drive the core interaction between users and chatbot. The employment of Amazon Recognition and Amazon Lex allowed a virtual agent to understand the user’s intent. The selected tech stack helped us built the following features:

  • Connection with customers via messenger or web widget
  • Provision of user-specific information
  • Support for transactional queries
  • Insurance recommendations based on the user needs
  • Built-in support for live chat integration

Phase 3

We used APIs to integrate our conversational application to existing systems and ensure easy connection to future business and customer services apps. The chatbot is integrated with Salesforce CRM and databases along with other insurance quotation marketplaces. Pre-built connectors enabled simple chatbot deployment on other channels, including Twitter, Facebook Messenger, etc.
