Funding Round : Series B
Personal assistant app Haptik has raised undisclosed investment from Times Internet as part of Series B round.
The funds will be used for product development, improving artificial intelligence capabilities and business operations. Through this partnership, Haptik will leverage Times Internet’s reach of over 150 million engaged users to offer its service to a wider audience.
Haptik enables users to get daily tasks done by chatting with assistants. The most popular requests that Haptik fulfills include online shopping, travel bookings, food delivery, restaurant reservations, best mobile plan recharges, etc.
“We started Haptik so that consumers could get the most out of their phones, without the huge learning curve of navigating hundreds of different apps. Ordering food or checking into a flight should be as easy as asking for it, and that’s what Haptik can do. With Times Internet as a partner, we’re excited to offer what we’ve built over the last two years to millions of consumers across India,” said Aakrit Vaish, CEO of Haptik.
Haptik now processes over half a million requests per month, out of which 25% are completed using artificial intelligence, claims the company.
In 2014, Haptik raised a seed round from Kalaari Capital.
