About us
What we do?

Solvemate is a tech company from Berlin that is making customer support fast, painless, and cost-effective. Our platform lets companies train a chatbot to integrate on their site or in their app. End customers interact with it through a series of quick multiple choice questions. 

With Solvemate, requests are solved in just twenty seconds on average. Thanks to machine learning, the chatbot also gets smarter over time: By understanding common requests, it anticipates the correct response. Support requests are dealt with automatically, around the clock, and at scale—resulting in faster response times, happier customers, and much lower costs.
