London Borough of Brent

Intelligent Agent – Chatbot

We designed and developed an intelligent agent (Chatbot) for the London Borough of Brent. New legislation meant that there was an expectation of a vast amount of new calls for the housing team to deal with. The bot was designed to handle most of the enquiries instead, allowing the staff to handle the questions that best used their expertise.

Delivered in weeks, on time and on budget.

“KnowNow is very easy to work with.  More a partnership type of relationship. KnowNow gave me the confidence and resource to enable my vision to come forward.

Sally Thompson, CEO, Launch International

KnowNow’s innovation workshop helped us define our requirements and then create our identity application utilising best of breed tools and the very latest thinking in system architecture. They saved us time and money but more importantly created a product for us that exceeded our expectations.
