Zimbabwe’s leading technology group Webdev has launched a new Classifieds Chat Bot app that allows users to browse products and services using numbered menu options.
As the cost of doing business with data in Zimbabwe continues to rise, the app improves product accessibility with the Whatsapp bundle instead of data packages.
Upon launching the product, the company said it had been working on improving the product for the past few months to ensure seamless integration between the marketplace and Whatapp which offers a range of exciting options such as real estate sales and rentals, cars and vehicles and building materials.
“You can find what you’re looking for through your favorite simple WhatsApp channel with minimal data costs. Over the past few months we have been working to improve our product and service and we believe the chat bot will help our customers enjoy a better experience with Classifieds.co.zw, ”said Webdev.
To access the service, WhatsApp users can save the number (+263 8644309906) in their phone contacts and then send the word “menu” in a WhatsApp message to get started. The bot then responds with various prompts to choose from.
“The app will close the gap between sellers and buyers within the app. This complements Classifieds.co.zw’s strong search position in all goods and services: (Currently number 1 in the major search engines, i.e. Google, Yahoo and Bing). Data bundles are far too expensive and therefore unaffordable to search online. Users who have saved the number (2638644309906) can also search for the latest products or services within a selected category, ”said the company.
Webdev operates the largest online marketplace in Zimbabwe, classifieds.co.zw
