A new Isotoma Whitepaper: Chatbots
"Over the last six months we’ve had a lot of interest from customers in the emerging area of chatbots, particularly ones using Facebook Messenger as a platform.

While bots have been around, in some form or other, for a very long time the Facebook Messenger platform has catapulted them into prominence. Access to one billion of the world’s consumers is a tempting prospect for many businesses.

We’ve reviewed the ecosystem that is emerging around chatbots and provide a guide to some of the factors you should consider if you are thinking about building and deploying chatbots, in our new whitepaper."

UX Design and Service Design are Growing Ever Closer
"As digital has become one of the primary ways of delivering a service experience, Service Design agencies have needed to become more digital, while digital agencies have needed to become more service oriented, to the point that it’s getting harder to differentiate the two. So much so that, at its highest level, User Experience Design has become indistinguishable from Service Design."
