Isobar, the digital agency from Dentsu Aegis Network, and Maruti Suzuki have rolled out India’s first Integrated Chatbot. Together, they have launched an innovative video banner with an in-built Chatbot on select platforms. This interactive property will allow to entertain users’ first-level queries, thereby educating them about ‘A whole new world of Dzire’ and redirecting them to the main website and enabling a two-way communication with the relevant audience.
Isobar, the agency that handles the digital mandate for Maruti Suzuki India, created this innovation as part of the launch campaign of brand Dzire. The all-new Maruti Suzuki Dzire, with its smooth sedan styling, rich interiors and seamless enhancements, had to be introduced to the market in exciting new formats. Being an existing segment leader, Maruti Suzuki decided to be bold and bring forward the renewed brand message and capture existing and new audiences’ interest.
Commenting on this first-of-its-kind innovation, Sanjeev Handa, VP Marketing said, “The video chat bot used for the All New Dzire is a very exciting innovation for us at Maruti Suzuki. It not only enables two-way communication with our audience, but allows us to immediately address their first-level queries, real time and in a very engaging manner. We look forward to sustained quality engagement with consumers in future.”
Gopa Kumar, VP Isobar India, added, “We’re thrilled to be working with Maruti Suzuki and pioneer into the next level of conversational and engaging ad. This being an industry first, provides superior user experience on video and adding this extra level of personalisation with the Chatbot makes them even more powerful. This is also an example of what can be created when a great brand and truly cutting-edge technology team up. We expect this to be the first of many such campaigns as other brands discover the opportunities of Chatbot integrations with their video ads.”
