Conversational agents being the appropriate solution for many issues, both internal and external, the Botfoundry team has had the opportunity to work and implement its solution in various sectors and for different use cases.​

As a longstanding Botfoundry client, L'Oréal assisted in the creation of the chatbot solution as part of a co-innovation partnership.​

Initially, a chatbot was rolled out to help HR provide specific answers to some of the cosmetics group's employees with regard to their situation and depending on their identity.​

A second internal bot was set up in the Group's legal department to answer recurring questions from employees.

Two Botfoundry chatbots have been rolled out consecutively at SNCF Réseau to improve employees' daily lives. ​

The first is intended to improve the support service of a network-asset maintenance application.​

Available 24/7, it allows field agents to find solutions during an incident but also to create a ticket directly in ServiceNow if the bot does not have the right answer. ​

Following the success of the first rollout, a second chatbot was set up to simplify clearance requests for the 250 applications in SNCF Réseau's internal fleet. ​

Since the beginning of the coronavirus crisis, the population has been inundated with a ceaseless flow of information. It is often difficult to find the answer to a specific question or concern, or to access recommendations from health authorities.​

FSNB Health & Care therefore asked Inetum to use Botfoundry to spread reliable information in a time of crisis with the aim of relieving the pressure on health organisations. An interactive platform for the general public based on data from official sources was developed for this purpose.​

Thanks to Botfoundry, the FSNB Health & Care chatbot could go live in a record time of two weeks with a high level of response relevance.​
