  • Track bookings: The Bot assists in checking the status of bookings by simply receiving a booking ID from the user.
  • Verify email: The Bot is programmed to verify the email by sending OTP,  only verified visitors will be allowed to do further process. 
  • Reschedule bookings: The Bot can reschedule an appointment on the available slots by simply receiving a booking ID.
