One of the world’s largest conversational AI companies announces new product to serve e-commerce brands globally
Buzzo is a multilingual voice assistant enabling better search, discovery and purchase for e-commerce websites and apps

Jio Haptik Technologies Limited, a subsidiary of Reliance Jio Platforms, announced the launch of its new product Buzzo, an AI-powered voice assistant to improve the digital shopping experience. With Buzzo, Haptik brings the simplicity of an in-store assisted experience to apps and websites, navigating through the variety of product choices using a voice enabled interface.
In the post pandemic era, according to Forrester Research, e-commerce sales have grown by 20% in the US and digital is now the default way of shopping for most millennials. However, searching through long product catalogs and finding the most suitable products continues to remain a cumbersome experience.

Buzzo uses Haptik’s cutting edge NLU combined with product meta data such as filters, reviews, pricing, tags, etc. to understand a user’s requirements spoken in colloquial language and provide recommendations similar to an in store sales agent. The AI assistant also knows how to nudge relevant upsells & cross sells and add multiple items to cart in a single voice command, leading to a much faster overall checkout process.

Buzzo’s first implementation is in JioMart – one of India’s largest e-grocery platforms. Over a million end customers have used the AI assistant already with a 50% increase in conversion rate from browsing to purchase.
“Voice search has shown a lot of promise but has been limited in its ability to really drive transactions,” said Aakrit Vaish, Co-Founder & CEO of Haptik. “The primary reason for this is the lack of domain expertise in the AI models along with a natural UX workflow. With Buzzo, we have taken close to a year to perfect this experience through multiple iterations. The initial results we are seeing with JioMart are extremely promising, and we are excited to take this product to other brands globally.”
