I wanted to order copy papers for my business and I though why do it on a website. Can't it be as easy as talking to the seller, then the idea for the Staples bot came
What it does
In a conversational manner this bot helps customers of small businesses who sells office supplies to order from them easily
How I built it
I used AWS LEX, LAMBDA, DYNAMODB with API calls to Quickbooks online to automatically sync inventory and we also have a delivery feature that calls FEDEX Api
Challenges I ran into
Finding the right and simple tutorials for my use case.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
This is my first time building a bot and testing it live. I am so proud of myself and I love the AWS Lex platform
What I learned
I learnt alot from ideation to AWS Lex, Lambda, DynamoDB usage and integrating my bot onto messenger platform.
What's next for StaplesBot
Bot robustness to include other office supplies item and calls to APIS like the salesforce for CRM and deployment to other messaging platform like Slack
