Why chatbots?

It is all about visual appeal, fonts, colours and layout when we build web pages and mobile applications. However, when it comes to chatbots, the focus is different. The majority of chatbots run on Facebook messenger, WhatsApp, Alexa or other social platforms with the focus centred around the bot's personality and its tone of voice.

Using components such as Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana, our logging infrastructure provides us the ability to apply filters to perform queries and basic trends analysis or counts.
