Link Intime, a renowned player in the IPO & Corporate Registry business, is a household name in India due to its impeccable services, consistent quality, and vast reach. While its reputation precedes itself, the influx of customer queries, especially during IPO season, became a notable challenge for its customer support team.
To address this challenge, Bluetick Consultants came up with an innovative solution: IDIA Chatbot.
To alleviate the pressure on Link Intime's customer support team by introducing a semi-intelligent, web-based chatbot that can efficiently handle customer queries.
The Solution - IDIA Chatbot
Developed exclusively for Link Intime, the IDIA chatbot is a sophisticated blend of technology and design. It is web-based, responsive, and tailored to the nuances of the IPO and Corporate Registry Industry.
Bluetick Consultants initiated the project by designing a prototype with hardcoded data. This allowed for a tangible representation of the chatbot, enabling Link Intime to visualize the final product. After the prototype's approval, the development of the IDIA chatbot began in earnest.
1 Unique Design Elements
a Impressive Nav Bar
Instead of a conventional list or dropdown, the navigation bar offers a sliding window of buttons. This design decision aids in smooth scrolling, ensuring users can easily access different sections, branch locations, and contact details. It improves user navigation and ensures a clutter-free experience.
b Topic Banner
When users select any of the topics from this banner, they are immediately presented with relevant questions associated with that topic. This direct approach reduces the time taken for users to find what they are looking for and enhances the chatbot's efficiency.
c Menu Drawer with Display Cards
Upon selecting a specific topic card, users are presented with its associated subtopics. This hierarchical design ensures that users can drill down their queries in a step-by-step manner, ultimately leading them to the exact information they seek.
2 In-Built PDF Viewer
Recognizing the importance of document sharing, especially in the IPO domain, the IDIA chatbot incorporates an in-built PDF viewer.

Download: If users want to keep a copy of the document for later reference, they can effortlessly download it.
Print: A direct print option ensures that users can produce hard copies of necessary documents with ease.
3 Topic-wise Navigation Structure
