Chatbots are interactive bots and they are computerized programs that carry out interactions with people for a particular task. Chat bots are playing an important role in digital Marketing as it replaces the existing manual Customer Service. Thus, chatbots are really an AI revolution in customer service world. A bot mechanism maintained by programming to conduct conversation through auditory/textual method. Chatbots guides and assists users with queries on apps and websites by providing a conversational interface that is similar to talking with a human agent. In Insurance, bots are used to explain complex products, to improve sales and distribution, and allow fast and contextual access to information.

This mechanism tries to mimic an actual human interaction with some limited knowledge and pre fixed input criteria from actual user. The knowledge of the Bot is defined and can be expanded based on defining the purpose and code integration. Application with ChatBot APP is hosted in Heroku [PaaS], which is Connected to Bot Integration and processing Layer. Amazon Lex recognizes that a particular information has been requested and using AWS Lambda function the information is retrieved. By accessing to Heroku application instance, we can monitor the activities along with logs with the help of New Relic by capturing the bot response time from Lex server, through which we can identify the Performance bottlenecks.
