B1Chat – SME SEEDx Development Challenge 2019
In this blog, you will learn about a solution that has been developed for the SME SEEDx Development Challenge 2019.
One of our customers have a large customer base and processes hundreds of orders on daily basis. They have a customer support team which handles customer queries regarding their orders, delivery status, stock related inquiries, etc. As the business is expanding, the cost of maintaining this customer support team is constantly increasing. Customer has been demanding a solution for handling the ever increasing volume of inquiries.
Our solution B1Chat is an answer to this problem of handling customer inquiries with NO HUMAN INTERVENTION. It was important to build a platform which is easy to use, should not require any training for the end user and which responds to customer with their queries.
Also, authentication of the user was very important. Due to public availability of the solution, we have added OTP which is sent as SMS to the registered mobile number.
B1Chat is a chatbot which is integrated with SAP Business One at the backend, pulls the data through SAP Business One service layer and provides real time information to the end user.

Chatbots have become extraordinarily popular during last few years. There are too many platforms and technologies for building chatbots. Selecting one was very difficult. We chose the technologies on the basis of ease of development and less turnaround time.
As a result B1Chat is a solution which can be deployed for a new customer within 5-6 working days, starting from script to final execution and deployment.
We are very hopeful that this solution will be able to help several SAP Business One customers extend their services and improve customer service.
