Progress Enables Developers to Add Chatbots to Apps Using Telerik and Kendo UI
The conversational UI functionality is available in more than a dozen Telerik and Kendo UI toolsets. As is standard across Progress’ UI tools, the components are easy to implement using existing development skills and with the technologies that developers prefer. Through the conversational UI components, developers can implement key UI design features such as calendars and date pickers that allow the developer to better control the direction of the conversation.
New conversational UI capabilities include:
- Framework-Agnostic: compatible with all major chatbot frameworks including Microsoft Azure Bot Service, Facebook Wit.ai, Google DialogFlow, Amazon Lex, and more.
- Consistent Design Experience: giving chatbots the same look and feel as any other web, desktop, or mobile applications, leveraging highly-customizable components.
- Natural Conversation Flow: a visually appealing experience that enables and enhances the natural conversation flow between chatbot and users.
For developers that want to build their own chat experiences on frameworks offered by Microsoft, Facebook, Google, and Amazon, Progress’ newly announced conversational UI components for Telerik and Kendo UI make it easy to build an engaging chat experience. For organizations looking for an out-of-the-box chatbot solution for transactional customer service use cases, Progress offers Progress NativeChat, an AI-based chatbot solution that can be trained and deployed in weeks.
