The challenge

The Reservations team at Atlantis wanted to explore the option of using a voice-based bot to handle reservations in an automated manner, helping the Reservations team deal simultaneously with massive number of customer requests at peak hours during the tourist season.  

The Atlantis team approached Blue Logic Digital for building and deploying the region’s first voice-based bot to manage reservations and bookings.

 

The Objectives

Customers who want to book a table or make a room reservation often prefer to speak to a booking agent to help them with information about options available, pricing, discounts, in order to take a decision. Therefore, it was critical for the Blue Logic Digital team to design this first-ever Hospitality Bot keeping in mind several aspects of reservations management.

For example:

  • The voice bot must be able to communicate effectively and reliably.
  • Responses from the bot need to have the right sentiment.
  • The voice bot must be able to answer queries about the resort, about the F&B outlets, check table availability as well as give recommendations.
  • The bot must be able to integrate with the room booking system and check availability and book rooms.

The Solution Delivered

The team at Blue Logic Digital set to work to build a voice-based bot that could communicate conversationally with customers who wanted to make room reservations or restaurant table bookings at Atlantis The Palm.

Here are the technical capabilities of the bot solution:

  • Bot capabilities: Alexa Skills, Voice-enabled web widget
  • Bot framework elements: NLU flows with intent-entity mapping, Analytics Dashboard, System Integrations via APIs

The first hospitality voicebot in the region was successfully developed by Blue Logic Digital “Hey Alexa, Atlantis the Palm”. Bot Features:

  • Book a table in any of Atlantis F&B Outlets.
