HERZLIYA PITUACH, Israel, September 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
The leading chatbot-building platform SnatchBot unveiled today the world's premiere chatbot store, aptly named SnatchBot Store. SnatchBot has created bots for some of the world's leading brands, including Interactive FX, Tata Communications, and Veolia, among others.
SnatchBot Store is a marketplace that is fully integrated with SnatchBot's comprehensive bot-building platform. It provides for free ready-for-use templates for a wide variety of chatbot use cases, including, but not limited to, customer service, banking, travel and tourism, and e-commerce.
SnatchBot Store is comprised of two parts: Bot templates and Bot directory. In the Bot template section, enterprises can access customizable, task-specific, and pre-built bots in a variety of areas and sectors. Users can simply choose a template that fits their needs and begin using their bot immediately. The bot directory includes established bots which can be added to your preferred channels with a single click.
This exclusive marketplace offers enterprises a way to quickly and easily modify pre-built bots to their brand and publish them to a variety of high-traffic channels including Slack, SMS, Facebook Messenger, and the web.
"SnatchBot's goal has always been to make the creation and deployment of chatbots accessible to anyone," said the co-founder and CEO of SnatchBot, Henri Ben Ezra. "SnatchBot Store, together with the SnatchBot platform, will greatly reduce the time and investment previously associated with bot-building."
The SnatchBot Store will initially offer bots developed internally and via its chatbot user community. New bots will be added on a regular basis. Developers will also have the opportunity to be spotlighted in the marketplace.
Here are just a few examples of the types of bot templates available upon launch:
- Online Store bots, to enable companies to launch a fully-featured chatbot for an online shop.
- Customer service bots, to automate customer support and sales interactions and to deal with common inquiries.
- Hospitality bots, to offer unprecedented value to hospitality companies by making planning and booking trips easy via virtual guided assistance.
- E-commerce bots, a personal smart-shopping assistant that will help solve customer inquiries efficiently.
From hospitality to travel, healthcare to weather, SnatchBot Store will offer dozens of options for pre-built bots covering a wide variety of sectors. There is no cost to get started and bots can be launched in minutes. SnatchBot is offering the store, bots, templates, and support at no charge.
"SnatchBot Store is making bot creation and deployment even simpler than SnatchBot already has," said Henri Ben Ezra. "With our pre-existing bot templates, enterprises will be able to quickly and efficiently launch chatbots with little to no training needed for employees or customers."
The goal of SnatchBot, since its inception in 2015, has been to expand the accessibility of chatbots and make bot-building easy for anyone, developer or otherwise. Based in the heart of the "start-up nation", Herzliya Pituach, SnatchBot provides access around the world to sophisticated, natural-language conversational bots ("chatbots") with highly engaging user experiences and lifelike conversational interactions across all communication channels.
