Haptik has raised an undisclosed amount of funding from Times Internet in a series B round. The funds will be used for product development, improving artificial intelligence capabilities and business operations. Through this partnership, Haptik will leverage Times Internet’s reach of over 150 million engaged users to offer its service to a wider audience.

Haptik is a mobile application that enables users to get daily tasks done by chatting with assistants. The important requests that Haptik fulfills include online shopping, travel bookings, food delivery, restaurant reservations, best mobile plan recharges, etc. Haptik is a gateway to various services on user phone, simplifying multiple, complex applications into one, easy to use chat interface.

“We started Haptik so that consumers could get the most out of their phones, without the huge learning curve of navigating hundreds of different apps. Ordering food or checking into a flight should be as easy as asking for it, and that’s what Haptik can do,” said Aakrit Vaish, CEO of Haptik. “With Times Internet as a partner, we’re excited to offer what we’ve built over the last two years to millions of consumers across India.”

Haptik claims that it has grown multifold in the last one year and now processes over half a million requests per month, out of which 25% are completed using artificial intelligence. The company works with fulfillment partners, including Flipkart, Cleartrip, Via.com, Urbanclap, Dineout, etc. In 2014, Haptik raised a seed round from Kalaari Capital, one of India’s leading Venture Capital funds.

Founded by Aakrit Vaish and Swapan Rajdev in 2013, Haptik is a chat based personal assistant service available on Android & iOS. In 2016, Haptik also partnered with Samsung Mobiles to offer a first of its kind pre-built messaging concierge service to their users.
