Interaksi connects people who look for services like photography, design, or English language teaching with specialists:

  • Customers submit a service request on the platform
  • All related specialists get the request details via WhatsApp
  • Customers select a specialist from the responses they receive
  • Live chat managers connect customers with specialists


Interaksi managers had to send all WhatsApp messages manually. It caused three main issues:

  • → missing leads due to human factor
  • → long wait times due to manual request processing
  • → WhatsApp Business accounts getting blocked due to manual business-initiated messaging

Goal: to automate finding service performers for leads

Solution: Interaksi automated two service request flows

Flow 1. Processing

  1. Traffic from targeted ads drives to the Interaksi website
  2. Leads submit their service requests
  3. All lead and request data uploads to Chatfuel
  4. Chatfuel bot notifies service performers based on a request type

Flow 2. Confirmation

  1. Service performers respond to a request
  2. Chatfuel bot sends customers service performers' profiles
