We at TOPBOTS are huge fans of Taco Bell’s Fiery Doritos Locos Tacos, so don’t be surprised that the TacoBot is our favorite bot of the big brands. Unfortunately the bot is currently in private beta so we’ll have to wait before we can experience the full glory of the Taco Bell Slack bot. TACO BELL – if any of you are listening, we’d love to partake in your beta program!!!
Taco Bell has long been a fast-food innovator keeping up with trends and changes in consumer behavior. Lawrence Kim, Taco Bell’s director of digital innovation and on-demand, explains why the TacoBot is innovative: “The TacoBot adds another touch point for fans to access our brand on their terms—when and where they want it most,” says Kim. “Whether it’s through our mobile app, ta.co or now through Slack, we’re always striving to provide access and convenience every step of the way.”
Watch the demo video below to see just how easy ordering tacos can be!
Building for Slack was not easy. Taco Bell’s other ordering systems are heavily visual, but the TacoBot for Slack needed to be text-only. Additionally, Slack is an incredibly popular enterprise messaging service with thousands of teams and millions of users. Scaling TacoBot’s ordering capability to accommodate such high demand is no easy feat.
