Filament Chat logo

The team at Filament have been delivering chatbot projects since 2014. That experience has yielded a methodology trusted by some of the biggest enterprises worldwide. That methodology, both art and science, is now wrapped into our Chat Services and our Filament Enterprise Bot Manager Platform. The art is designing a Conversational UX that engages and delights the user. The science is the deployment rigour that scales and continuously improves your enterprise chatbot capability.

Our team of Natural Language Processing experts, conversational architects, project managers and interaction designers help our clients make chatbots that go beyond a gimmick.

Filament_QA_BOT_LOGO

If you need your bot to answer customer questions based on some prior knowledge (FAQ document, knowledge base, etc.), you don’t need to design conversation flows. Just upload a QA spreadsheet and the bot is ready to answer questions.

Our Delivery Process

We pride ourselves on working flexibly and collaboratively. Whether you would like us to complete the full design and build of the bot, or to work with your existing agencies and in-house development teams, we are happy to work in the way that will deliver the best results.

chat_discovery

Discovery

We first work with you to establish the purpose of the chatbot. We will then advise on the conversational UX / NLP platform to use and on where to deploy the bot. We will also put together technical documentation for the bot during this phase.

CHAT_ux

Conversation Experience

We build out the conversation flows to achieve the chatbot’s purpose, including visual assets, buttons and info cards. We will write the copy for the bot responses and will work with you to layer on your brand personality and tone of voice.

CHAT_development

Development

We then develop the chatbot using our Bot Scaffolding in line with the approved conversation flows, copy and technical documentation.

CHAT_testing

Testing

We will test the bot for valid and invalid responses to user questions and make any updates to copy that are required to ensure the user experience is as seamless and natural as possible.

CHAT_deploy

Deployment & Support

Once the chatbot is approved, we deploy it to the agreed channels and actively monitor it in the crucial post-launch phase. We respond quickly to make any tweaks that are needed.

CHAT_Continuous_Improvement

Continuous Improvement

All of our clients have access to our Chatbot Management Portal to enable ongoing monitoring and content updates to be made in real time.

OUR PARTNERSHIPS

Our Technology & Tooling

The most common questions we get from our clients are around how to scale chatbots from both a technical and operational level. From a technical level, this may be how to scale the architecture to handle millions of conversations a day, or how to manage thousands of conversational flows, intents or locales. Operationally, this may be how to comply with GDPR, fit a chatbot solution into current processes and governance guidelines or how to successfully report measures of success.

Filament EBM addresses these challenges.

On-going Bot Management

Like an employee, a chatbot needs to be continuously taught new things and skillsets. This is done by Bot Managers and Bot Operations (BotOps). We can help you find the right people in your business to perform these roles, or we can do these roles for you via a fully managed service.

Bot as a Service (BaaS)

Running and maintaining a successful bot requires time and effort. It’s a new channel very much like the introduction of social media. At Filament, we understand that introducing new technology can be tricky and that getting the right team around you can be a challenge.  Therefore, we offer a completely managed service. We will plan, build, test, launch and monitor a chatbot ability or you. Of course, this means working closely with your internal teams to get BAU processes in place, but going forward we will continuously review, report back on and improve the chatbots performance. 

Strategic Consultancy

We would like to ultimately see ourselves as external members of your team. Our hope is to become a trusted company that can help advise and upskill your company to become one that is leading in the AI Space and exchange the skills needed for you to create your own AI capability.  We do this through multiple levels of AI education, from c-suite courses, through to business and developer level courses.
