Fallback to live chat

When the bot is unable to answer a query thrice, Floatbot automatically switches the conversation to an agent. Another way in which the bot allows to switch to a human agent is when the user directly requests to talk to an agent.  




Customer engagement

Sessions keep a record of all the conversations that the user has with the bot. So whenever the user wishes to know the last conversation it had with the bot they can do by clicking on the backward arrow giving details like the time, date, and the conversation history.  





This feature allows your users to send you their location within a conversation by moving the location icon from the Google maps. With the help of their latitude and longitude, the bot is able to fetch the user’s location.




Variable management

Floatbot captures various user data through variable like IP, country, city and other types of information that you’ve received from the user.





The If-else condition in the bot allows controlling the flow of response based on user’s attribute. The bot performances different actions based on different conditions.




Floatbot features




Floatbot as a platform works on 5 important parameters that are AI conversational engine, Channel, API access, Payment, and NLP engine.


AI conversational engine

The AI conversational engine works to understand user intent and build a complete conversation around it. For example, for a travel bot, your flows would consist of questions like location, date of travel, and so on. With the help of conversational AI, all these questions become one complete conversation. So whenever a user will type intents like book or I want to book a ticket the bot will trigger this conversation.


Using our platform you can build a transactional chatbot giving users the convenience of making payment for services and buying products without switching between different portals. With pre-configured payment gateways like Paytm, Paypal and Razorpay fill in your details and get started.
