First Conversational AI Project for the Telekom Baskets
In a first joint Cognigy.AI project, Telekom improved the digital experience of the basketball team it sponsors, the Telekom Baskets. The aim was to employ a digital assistant and make fan interaction more efficient, more emotional, and unlimited in terms of time. A particular highlight of the solution is the digitization of the Baskets’ mascot. “Bonni” was measured and filmed in various poses to create a likable 3D avatar with high recognition value for the fans.
Fans can chat with the virtual mascot and get information from it at www.telekom-baskets-bonn.de anytime. Bonni provides support with any queries relating to tickets, the fan store, the match schedule, the team, or directions to the Telekom Dome. The avatar also reacts to events in real time, for example jumping in the air when a positive message is received, clapping its hands, or cheering, which lends an emotional touch to the interaction. The team behind Bonni can adapt and expand chat dialogs constantly, thanks to the intuitive usability of Cognigy.AI.
In addition to Telekom, Cognigy offers its customers a broad network of skilled local and global implementation and IT system partners with relevant industry and subject specializations. Find a qualified partner on the Cognigy partner network page: www.cognigy.com/partner
