Everybody is talking about the blockchain, AI, machine learning, big data, smart-contracts, etc. But the fact is, all this high-tech is available only to corporations or specialized IT companies.
At the same time, there are 300+ million small businesses in the world who cannot afford all these high technologies mainly due to lack of human and financial resources. Still they have problems in areas of customer care, marketing and sales, etc, which can be solved by modern messaging and AI-based technologies: chatbots.

That's where MINIAPPS comes in. MINIAPPS develops and deploys chatbots that can reduce operational costs for small to medium businesses trying to compete in a world where traditional corporations dominate.

Here is an example of what a chatbot could do:
