Our Kik bot

Our Kik bot will be based on the Salesforce and Force.com platforms, which I explained previously. At a high level, we will be following the following steps for our bot:

  1. Developing a basic Kik bot
  2. Enhancing our basic bot program for a more conversational experience as per Kik guidelines
  3. Establishing a connection between CRM and our basic bot
  4. Based on the user's requirements, getting CRM data from Salesforce and presenting the user data in the Kik app

Creating our first Kik bot

Just like Slack, Kik also helps us to create our bot using an automated agent, Botsworth. Let's follow the steps to create our first Kik bot.
