The funding will be utilised to enhance the Verloop customer engagement platform as the company expands its team and scales operations to address the global market for automated customer services and marketing.
"Our conversational automation platform already works with more than 5,000 clients across the e-commerce, healthcare, education, and entertainment & lifestyle sectors in 37 countries. This investment is a striking endorsement from some of the savviest and most well-known names in the start-up and tech ecosystem and comes at a time when we are continuing to hire top talent and build further traction for the business," said Gaurav Singh, the 28-year old Founder & CEO of Verloop.
"People are seeking out a conversational experience with brands and Verloop helps organisations do this at scale. Over the past several months, we have undertaken an intricate assessment of the Verloop platform, its architecture and the product roadmap. We were very impressed at the way the team has built Verloop and are delighted to partner with Gaurav and his team. The use-cases they have built are very interesting and there is great potential for the product to verticalise and mine the potential for automated customer engagement across industries, across countries and across languages," said Jatin Desai, general partner, IDFC-Parampara.
"There have been a few notable success stories of Saas-based ventures from India and we believe Verloop certainly has the credentials to emerge as a leader in the conversational AI market, which is currently led by players such as Drift and Intercom globally," he added.
Gopalakrishnan said: "We are seeing a massive behavioural shift with people demanding personalised and conversational brand experiences. Large, growing organisations and celebrity brands will be hard pressed to meet this requirement profitably and at-scale as interactions run into multiple millions. This is where ML (machine learning) technology, coupled with human ingenuity, comes in and can help harvest the potential in these interactions. Verloop has built an easily scalable model to target a huge addressable market."
Falguni Nayar, founder and CEO, Nykaa, said: "Since implementing Verloop, Nykaa has been able to clear more customer queries, resulting in greater post-purchase customer satisfaction. Verloop has also enabled us to respond to customers during live purchase and share product links, allowing us to deliver better assistance and beauty advice. This helps us to deliver an improved and personalised shopping experience to our customers."
