Ziman is a smartphone app by Zicom that is a holistic safety and security service. Haptik's chatbot technologies are now integrated with the application. The partnership makes Ziman the first safety services provider in the world to have an integrated chatbot. The chatbot is infused with AI that learns the habits of the user, including the mode of commute, frequency of travel, and information on family members.
The chatbot simulates a human conversation for those who are feeling unsafe while travelling. The chatbot will constantly keep itself updated with the route, landmarks, vehicle details and other information that can be required in an emergency. There is also the facility of handing over the chatbot to a human agent in case the situation demands it. The chatbot is like a companion to give company on lonely journeys, with the assurance that help is just a tap away.
Vishal Sriwastava VP of ZICOM Care says, "While core surveillance and tech-based security measures were our forte, Haptik's chatbot has brought in a real-time data accumulation-enabled security mechanism that provides much-needed comfort to a user in times of deep distress. Its conversational quality and deep learning-based mechanism ensures it learns quickly about the normal commuting behaviour of a user, and hence can swiftly detect any anomaly."
Haptik Co-Founder Aakrit Vaish says, "Ziman is the world's first Personal security Service enabled by a chatbot. It has a host of features that provides personal safety, live tracking of pets, kids, and senior citizens, maintains Digital privacy while doing online transaction, creates a secure environment for mobile phones and offering eKYC aadhaar verification. Ziman is backed by Response Management Services thru a 24x7 operated National Command Centre Through Haptik's 24x7 chatbot, Ziman users can now find a friendly voice accompanying them throughout a lonely journey, assuring them of help at the click of a button while collecting all the necessary data simultaneously!"
Ziman provides physical safety by offering a helpline with professionals trained to respond to emergency situations. The app can be used to monitor children and the elderly when they are out of the home, supports geofencing, and a quick trigger button for medical emergencies. The application is also linked to Aadhaar for added benefits. In terms of digital security, the app monitors the device for signs of suspicious activity, and has a number of measures to prevent misuse of the device or the data on it in case of theft of the smartphone.
