Ways to make your business more sustainable

We are currently facing one of humanity's biggest challenges - a climate crisis. It is real, and how seriously it develops is something that continues to concern us. We also wonder what we might do to minimize the effects of this crisis. Yet what we often hear is that individual action is ineffectual; that any single contribution a person makes is ultimately insignificant and futile. As a result, people are discouraged and decide instead to wait it out, hoping some heroes will save us as they did on the screens in our childhood memories. But at Startup Development House we're not discouraged. Rather, we feel empowered and hopeful, believing in change and striving to be part of it. This is why we adopted our own principles and practices to make us more sustainable, ones we continue to refine for ensuring we remain among those businesses dedicated to realizing this change. Read on to find out what steps you can take to help you make your business more sustainable.

What is Google Dialogflow?

We are undoubtedly witnessing significant growth in software services designed for helping businesses increase the ease with which their clients access them. More and more, companies both big and small are turning to such technological solutions which in turn transform the way businesses and clientele communicate. By offering more instantaneous responses to queries, businesses stand to enhance customer satisfaction and thereby strengthen loyalty. On a more personal level, I had long been sceptical of engaging a bot, however, once offered an expedient, simple solution to my problem within minutes, I began to think otherwise. Yet the question remains: are chatbots as reliable as traditional customer services, and are they natural and organic enough to handle user-specific issues?  While working on a recent project, I came across a  product from Google Cloud Platform called Dialogflow. It turned out to be a very interesting experiment and actually,  worked better than I'd expected - hence the following article.
