“Offline retailers trying to become e-commerce or new era e-commerce businesses are the biggest verticals for us. Then digital native or new era businesses – unicorns, tech, fintech, gaming, all these sectors are growth drivers. We probably have a 50% market share of unicorns in India. We work with a lot of them,” Vaish said.

Jio acquired a majority stake in the company in April 2019.

The Company provides an AI-powered conversational platform for businesses on WhatsApp, website, mobile app, Instagram, Google Business Messages, SMS, etc.
