Building Belgium's first telecom chatbot with integrated payment in Messenger for BASE
At the start of 2016, mobile phone operator BASE Company was officially acquired by Telenet, one of Belgium's leading telecom providers. BASE has always been a young and dynamic company with a strong focus on a great user experience. Looking at the fact that 60% of consumers use chatbots to interact with businesses and the use of Facebook Messenger is popular amongst all age groups, the Telenet team contacted BotBakery, specialized in bringing together artificial intelligence, user interfaces, personalization and user experience through the creation of chatbots. Together with Ingenico, BotBakery’s remit was to set up Belgium’s first telecom recharging ‘top-up’ chatbot with an integrated payment module in Messenger to recharge prepaid cards.
