Don’t worry, bots are not ‘really’ going to invade the whole of Talkspirit! They are actually here to merely help, and support you in your everyday work life. But first, what are bots exactly?!
As many of you are probably well aware of, the word ‘bot’ literally stands for ‘robot’ – which usually come in many forms, shapes, and sizes. From Siri on your iPhone, R2D2 in Star Wars to industrial robots in production facilities. The bots we are talking about however are more like virtual agents, ready at your disposal as of today!
So, how does it work exactly?
Just like any other bot, our newly introduced bots are destined to make our lives easier, more pleasant, and most of all more productive. So how does it work exactly? Our Talkspirit bots operate in the chat, and will save you time by performing various tasks for you! Our bots can be accessed and controlled by simple one-click commands in the chat function. Bots can be good fun, and by putting them to good use you can even save a bunch of time! Give it a go by simply typing ‘@’ in the chat, and see what bots will appear.
At Talkspirit we believe that people work better in teams, and believe it or not, so do bots.
