Proto and Pindo partner to improve access to AI customer experiences in Africa

2 min

Proto’s AI Customer Experience (AICX) solutions are now integrated with Pindo’s API with rapid messaging in Africa.

Proto's AICX solutions enable contact centres from diverse industries, such as financial to healthcare services, to automate scaling volumes of customer queries across local and mixed languages, such as Kinyarwanda, Nyanja, and Swahili. Proto chatbots can be deployed across popular messaging channels such as Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, Twitter, and SMS, allowing businesses and governments to include the maximum number of local consumers.

Pindo is a Rwanda-based SMS platform for developers. Pindo’s marketplace of integrated partners brings innovative communication channels to its clients, including large enterprises and government agencies. Now, Pindo is partnering with Proto to power conversations in local languages such as Kinyarwanda, Swahili and more.

Pindo’s CEO Remy Muhire said: “Reliable unified communication infrastructure in Africa is still an issue. Pindo, over the years, has immensely invested in owning its infrastructure to deliver quality experiences. This partnership with Proto comes at a good time as we recently scaled our CPaaS channels to cover all African countries and the rest of the world.”  
Proto’s CEO Curtis Matlock said: “Proto has been looking for reliable CPaaS partners to overcome latency in SMS messaging throughout Africa. This partnership with Pindo helps ensure the scalability and rapid response time of Proto chatbots serving private and public sector contact centres, starting in Rwanda.”


Over the coming weeks, Proto's AICX solutions will deploy the Pindo powering the SMS channel for chatbots.
