The innovation exemplifies SapientNitro’s connected capability that brings together creativity, technology, and strategic insights to redefine how companies and brands connect to their changing customers.

Citi Interactive Solutions was first deployed at Citi’s inaugural Client Experience Center for institutional clients in Singapore in 2011, followed by similar venues in Hong Kong and Dublin, and soon, Mumbai and Miami.
Commenting on the award, Christian Oversohl, Senior VP and APAC Lead for SapientNitro, said, “Being recognized as the partner that helped create such award-winning solution further energizes us as we continually push the boundaries of storytelling for brands. Citi Interactive Solutions represents the best of experience innovation in the transaction banking space and positions Citi as a clear leader in next-generation banking. By combining creativity and technology in inventive ways, we’ve developed not only a solution to the complex needs of Citi’s corporate clients, but an interactive storytelling platform that forms deeper connections between Citi’s solution experts and their clients. We are thrilled about our ongoing relationship with Citi Innovation Lab and excited for what’s next.”

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...
