  • No deep learning or natural language processing expertise is needed to build even complex bots
  • Provides an intuitive way of specifying the conversational interface
  • Automatically and dynamically adjusts conversational responses
  • Easy to build, test and publish app
  • Supports integration with other platforms such as Slack and Facebook
