Can you chat?

Howdy builds bots, chat integrations, voice skills and the tools that power them.

Conversational user interfaces are a new and vital part of digital content and services. Today it is common for people to interact with productivity enhancing bots at work, and voice assistants at home and on the go. Businesses need to understand the capabilities of these new platforms and how they can be put to work.

Since 2015, Howdy has been a leader in the field of building conversational software. We created the first commercially available bot add-on for Slack, which has performed nearly a million check-ins. Our developer tool, Botkit, has been used to successfully launch tens of thousands of useful bots. The design patterns and techniques we created have become industry standards.

We believe making bots should be fun, not too technical, and should make everyone involved feel cool.
