Magnet 360 Announces Community Chatbot Framework for Salesforce Lightning Bolt, Empowering Companies to Deploy Communities Faster Than Ever

Businesses can now Connect With Customers, Partners, and Employees at Scale With a Rules-based Chatbot, Creating a More Personalized and Efficient Experience

MINNEAPOLIS, MN, Sept. 30, 2016  /CNW/ - Magnet 360, a Mindtree company, today unveiled its Community Chatbot Framework, available on Salesforce Lightning Bolt, a new framework on the Salesforce Platform that gives companies the ability to find and deploy pre-built, next-generation mobile communities and portals for a wide variety of businesses and vertical industry needs. The Community Chatbot Framework helps prospects easily connect with businesses while providing a convenient, personalized way for customers, partners, and employees to have their service needs met without leaving a business' mobile application. As a bonus, the chatbot captures pertinent data from the chat conversation to help build out a 360-degree view of the audience member.

Magnet 360's Community Chatbot Framework will be available within Community Cloud Lightning and will be coming to the AppExchange in early 2017.

Community Chatbot Framework Key Features

Chatbot technology is an advanced way for consumers, partners, and other users to engage with a business. Bots can make recommendations, influence purchasing decisions, and offer options that add value, straight from an existing app or messaging tool.

Magnet 360's Community Chatbot Framework uses single sign-on combined with geo-location. It's built using Salesforce Community Cloud Lightning, providing efficient and effective personalization that end users expect from a world-class experience. The Community Chatbot Framework's inclusion in the Salesforce Lightning Bolt solution offered the Magnet 360 team the benefit of working directly with the Salesforce team to build out the concepts, get to know the technology, and create the most effective tool for its customers.
