Whatsapp Bot (with Dialogflow)

How is it useful:

  • Improves your contact with customers
  • Generate leads by interacting with prospects
  • Create bulk messages
  • Provide automated customer support
  • Automate repetitive processes

How does it work?

In shortcut, Tekos servers fetch Twilio webhook, process the data, and respond as necessary.

We encourage you to use Dialogflow with every bot you create using Tekos.

1. Twilio preparation:

We will need to prepare Twilio for webhook and get user credentials

  1. Go to: https://www.twilio.com/console/sms/whatsapp/sandbox
    Under the input box “WHEN A MESSAGE COMES IN” insert link to your webhook,
    it should look like this “https://{your-domain-name}.tekos.co/api/v1/whatsapp”Also save the number bellow for future usage.
  2. Go to: https://www.twilio.com/console/project/settings
    Save the “ACCOUNT SID” & “AUTH TOKEN” for future usage.
