Jio Haptik Technologies Limited, a subsidiary of Reliance Jio Platforms, announced the launch of its new product Buzzo, an AI-powered voice assistant to improve the digital shopping experience. With Buzzo, Haptik brings the simplicity of an in-store assisted experience to apps and websites, navigating through the variety of product choices using a voice enabled interface. In the post pandemic era, according to Forrester Research, e-commerce sales have grown by 20% in the US and digital is now the default way of shopping for most millennials. However, searching through long product catalogs and finding the most suitable products continues to remain a cumbersome experience. Buzzo uses Haptik’s cutting edge NLU combined with product meta data such as filters, reviews, pricing, tags, etc. to understand a user’s requirements spoken in colloquial language and provide recommendations similar to an in store sales agent. The AI assistant also knows how to nudge relevant upsells & cross sells and add multiple items to cart in a single voice command, leading to a much faster overall checkout process.
