Challenge 1:
Build a chatbot that works with Google Assistant

To bring the Conrad experience to Google Assistant we created a Conrad chatbot using Dialogflow, Googles very own tool for building conversational chatbots. The setup makes it possible to process the input provided by users and extract meaning/context. The chatbot is voice activated.

Challenge 2:
Connect the chatbot to the shop system

Not only should the Conrad Chatbot provide answers to frequently asked questions, but it should also identify useful shopping recommendations and present them to the user. We connected various APIs from the Conrad eCommerce platform to make that possible.

Challenge 3:
Provide useful features for existing customer base

One of the main requirements of the project was the creation of an interconnection between the Google Assistant and the Conrad customer account. We realized a secure and simple solution which makes it easy for the user to access their customer data without ever leaving the Google Assistant.
