Customer’s preferences for communication are evolving in today’s digital world. Given the choice, 9 out of 10 consumers want to use messaging to communicate with brands. The growing demand is pushing businesses to move away from traditional call centers, and expand the breadth of their services with chatbots. Chatbots will provide your customers 24/7 support that they need, while saving your business money. 

At Think 2018, IBM announced the reveal of Watson Assistant, formerly Watson Conversation. Watson Assistant is an artificial intelligence (AI) assistant that enables business users and developers to collaborate on building conversational solutions for their businesses large and small. This solution allows organizations to enhance brand loyalty and transform their customer experience by delivering proactive and personalized services while ensuring data privacy. Watson Assistant supports thousands of conversations across its organization. This type of scale requires a team of developers and takes time to implement. At IBM we understand, not everyone has these resources.

Topcoder is home to the world’s largest network of designers, developers, and data scientists. The Topcoder Community includes 1.3 million members from around the world who have been specially trained on all things Watson and IBM Cloud.

You’ll work directly with IBM and Topcoder to outline your use case and business requirements. Then, your dedicated Topcoder project manager will work with you to refine your inputs and to create your bot.
