About Us

Anima Chatbotics is a company, where entrepreneurs, programmers, and narrative designers collaborate for one common reason – to create digital assistants that are alive and own a soul, so-called chatbots.

Consequently the name, “chatbotics” refers to the art of creating algorithms, program code and avatars – the technical side. Whereas “anima” refers to Latin, meaning soul. Technically fulfilled digital employee, who has the ability to tell a story and owns rich dictionary is perceived as a soulful creature by conversers. They enjoy the chat and all the positive emotions are projected on a company or a person represented by the chatbot.

In 2014 our team built the first ever Georgian language-speaking chatbot “cybergala” and also first ever Georgian chatbot platform, where anyone could build their own cyber creature. Since “Cybergala” Anima works on diversity of innovative projects (including the ones that are not specifically connected to chatbots) and its door is always open for anyone interested in technologies. Anima collaborates with different organizations and companies.

In the meantime we are working on creation of digital assistants, who will own specific information about certain industries and any company will be able to hire the suitable one for them (visit the field of “Digital Assistants”)

Also we accept order-deals to create chatbots of any type and difficulty level. Those serve to enhance communication and improve customer service.
