Chatbot Channels

Connect to your customers conveniently

What is a Chatbot Channel?

Think of a chatbot 'channel' as the interface/system used by the end customer in the chat, as opposed to the tech behind the conversation (we call that bit the chatbot 'platform').

The customers that use your chat implementation will normally be familiar with, and probably choose the channel, e.g. WhatsApp, or Messenger. However, they are very unlikely to be familiar with the underlying platform that powers the conversation, e.g. Dialogflow or Rasa.

Omnichannel Chat Experiences

It's easier than you might think to create omnichannel conversational experiences.

You can deploy an automated assistant onto any chatbot channel or platform; we work with you to pick the right channel(s) to meet your customers' requirements, helping you maximise your ROI.

Finding the right channel for your needs depends largely on its intended use case.

Where will your solution be most useful for its end users?

For example, if it's an internal tool for your HR team, Microsoft Teams could make sense. Perhaps it's intended to help your customers find products or track orders, in which case a mobile app or website chatbot with built-in WhatsApp and Messenger options could be perfect. If you want to handle telephone enquiries more efficiently, then a smart IVR (interactive voice response) system is the channel for you.

Happy Clients

"We came to The Bot Forge to gain an insight into Chatbot technology, its capabilities and its applications. We found them to be knowledgeable and insightful when discussing bots and AI.

We were particularly interested in how chatbots could help us save on customer service costs and provide a new channel for us to connect with new and existing customers.

The information which we obtained from speaking to The Bot Forge will be invaluable in making more informed decisions in the future about using this technology and we hope to work with them again."


Emily (

"The Bot Forge offered a great service to us for the Saddleback Fred Whitton Challenge, which was really helpful for our customers and customer service team alike! They created a Facebook Chatbot based on the FAQs on the event website, which developed over time as more questions came up. Not only did this take some weight off our team and enhance customer experience, but it has also allowed us to better understand what information our riders are seeking, so that we can better answer their questions proactively through the website and social media. Adrian is always available at the drop of a hat, and eager to provide helpful solutions and developments."

Katie (Human Race Events)

"They’re responsive and organized, providing all the necessary information to track project progress.

The team is incredibly easy to work with. They took our idea and made it into reality."


Paul (Stitch)

"I’m really pleased with the bot and services we’re getting from The Bot Forge. Since we started working with Adrian, he completely lived up to his promises. The end-to-end process has been very slick.

The team was very straightforward to deal with. It was very much about them looking at how they could deliver in the quickest amount of time, with the least amount of investment required.

The Bot Forge understood our pain as a charity with a small team, and they took away a lot of the mystery and fluff from the process."


Jamie (Help For Heroes)

"I’m impressed with the chatbot it seemed to work well.

I think it is a good source of help and with it learning as it goes along it would answer lots of questions going forward.

If it cannot help it still contacts the organisers where we can answer."


Carolyn (Fred Whitton Challenge)

"The CIPS Professional Services Group (Procurement) approached The Bot Forge regarding consultancy and the creation of a demonstration Chatbot to support a conference presentation regarding industry 4.0 Technology. This was shown in front of ~100 Procurement professionals on December 2018 at Clifford Chance (London).

The Demonstration Chatbot built by Adrian at The BotForge was brilliant and we received really good feedback on the idea and execution. The Bot Forge perfectly met our requirements.

The team at Botforge will do everything they can to ensure your project is a success at the right price to suit budget! Would fully recommend!"
