About the Client ​

The client is an information and telecommunications services provider to a European railway company. Coforge works closely with the client on IT and infrastructure projects of the railway company.
 

Our Solution

Our goal was to enable new business models, innovations, and optimization in the core business through conversational AI-supported applications. The basis for this was the conversational AI platform on which we operated these applications and provided clients with standardized services at the push of a button.

The solution was delivered as a cloud-based, scalable platform that complied with strict data protection policies and IT security requirements of the client. To allow flexibility in our work and to use the best service available, Coforge considered AI services from various service providers depending on the application.

Platform front-end

With the platform front-end our clients are presented with the following options:

  • Training and maintenance of chatbots and voice assistants as well as an FAQ upload function
  • Live chat front-end to directly process transfers from the chatbot, with an optional live chat connection
  • Text-to-speech front-end, which converts text input into audio files (.wav format)
  • A KPI dashboard for the chatbot project on which all relevant user data is viewed and evaluated
     

User front-end and channel integration

  • Our chatbot services are presented as a separate channel, for example,  webchat or app, or in existing programs, apps, and websites. The chatbots are integrated with messenger services such as Apple Business Chat or WhatsApp Business Chat.
  • Voice services can also be directly linked to existing applications or used from the platform.
