We’ll set up real-time analytics with the market leading bot analytics products. You’ll be able to see every interaction with your bot along with aggregate statistics on usage and KPIs.

No Management Overhead

You don’t want to manage any more systems so we can seamlessly integrate with your existing CMS or CRM. This allows you to update content in the bot easily with no additional overhead.

Tried and Tested

Used by everyone from UK Government to global brands, our bots have passed the most stringent security tests and we can ensure you pass through GDPR. Our bots are blazingly fast as Hippocamp is build with Node.js and deployed on cloud infrastructure using Docker container management.

Danone - Cows Milk Allergy Companion

Danone is a multi-national food products corporation, present in over 130 countries. They have the market leading product that is prescribed in the event that a child is diagnosed with cows milk allergy.

It takes an average of 11 GP visits and 15 weeks from initial symtoms to diagnosis of CMA, causing a lot of unnecessary distress for parent and child. We built a bot that acts as a companion for parents throughout this journey, helping them to track symptoms and produce a comprehensive report to take to the GP, significantly reducing the average diagnosis time for CMA.

Department of International Trade

We're working with the UK Government's Department of International Trade to develop an innovative new conversational AI product. The laws around importing and exporting goods are complex, and cover everything from importing plants to exporting military hardware for repair. It can be extremely time consuming for the ordinary citizen or small business to understand whether they need a license, and if so which one.

By using a conversational user interface, we can reduce the time it takes to find these answers, as well as reduce the burden on human advisors.

What I like about working with Atchai is that they take the time at the beginning of the project to understand the big picture before choosing the right tech stack for the job.

What they delivered was cutting edge, very high quality software.

All work was delivered on time, on budget, to a very high standard with clear, honest communication throughout.
