Good question. We are a bunch of geeks and we solve challenging industry problems leveraging modern-day digital technologies. We specialize on Language Interfaces and Conversational AI. Not a far-fetched claim; we feel (almost) any problem can be codified and we are up for it.
What else can I tell you? Hmm. Let me think. The company was founded on 2nd Jan 2017 and has had an incredible growth journey since then. Almost every year we have added new team members and moved into a new, larger office space, which means we have been very much profitable as well. We really believe you can do great things quietly.
Good question. So, it goes like this. As per the color theory, the color Purple indicates all things good and positive in life. And, as a company, we at purpleSlate sincerely believe in continuous learning and sticking to the basics. As many Indians might know, Slate is one of the very first learning instruments we are exposed to in life. Hence the name purpleSlate. I know it sounds a bit too much. But, we seriously meant it.

We are a technology startup based out of Chennai, India. We are located at a quiet campus in one of the prime technology centers in Chennai. You can find us here. https://goo.gl/maps/cGJ53NHUfij8yLXR9
Just like any startup, we had our humble beginnings, starting with a team of two members (the co-founders) and today we are a passionate team of 100+.
If there is exciting and cutting-edge technology available, we will most likely be tinkering with it as we constantly experiment and refine our approach to solve some interesting problems. We are looking for individuals who are willing to learn and experiment with such technologies.
In addition, we are also looking for folks with expertise in Test Automation, using tools like Selenium, and creative people who are good at stuff like Content Writing and creating digital content, including Videos and illustrations.
Of course, yes. We always believe anytime is a great time to welcome great talent. Say Hello at firstname.lastname@example.org Or, to make it very simple, share with us your Github repo or other stuff that you built and that you are proud of.
Yes, we do hire from campuses and we believe firmly in grooming our own talent from schools.
We hire people for not who they were, but more for who they could become. Hence, for that same reason, we invest a good amount of our our time in curating our own talent from schools, that too not from the usual big name institutions (not that we don’t like them). But, from any place that is as anywhere it can get. School pedigree, doesn’t matter much to us.
We also believe, these days, you can’t land a job just by submitting your resume. We really don’t care where you studied or where you worked. We love to see your work – be it coding skills or anything else that you are endowed with and which you feel would add value to purpleSlate. So, share with us your Github repo or other stuff that you built and that you are proud of.
Very simple. Is your answer predominantly YES to all of these? Then, say Hello at email@example.com

We do have quite a bit of interesting solutions delivered for many of our customers across the globe. Please schedule a demo here and we would be happy to share some of our success stories with our customers.
Good question. You can find the answer here.
It depends. While our low-code platform accelerators help you with the desired time to market and get your conversational AI solution up and running in no time, there are other factors that affect the implementation costs. We would be more than happy to demystify the costs and please reach us here. One of the purpleHead would be happy to assist soon.
Ha, ha. Good question. We call it as ‘Get over the BOT hangover’. Not that we have a prejudice against any of the chatbots of today. As much as chatbots have become so ubiquitous today, the user experience of many of these chatbot implementations are far from desirable. It is our earnest goal to help improve the user experience and make the chatbot more useful. You can more about it here.
From the earliest days of the invention of computers, one fundamental question that has driven their evolution is how would humans interact with these devices. To perform a computation, to get an answer, or to get things done? So much so that, digital screens across all form factors have taken over our lives. There is almost a screen for anything we do in our life. On the other side, Conversations is in the middle of everything we do and human language is one of the most primal skill. With the ever-increasing ability of computers and devices to understand the language we speak, there is no better way and no better time than to reimagine the way we built interfaces – in the language we speak.
Awesome. We would be happy to show you our wares. Please pick a time here.
Our customers come from diverse industries, but we have deep expertise in building applications in Banking, Insurance, Healthcare, Petcare, Engineering, and Education.
Smart Transcription focuses more on the Understanding part and achieving higher levels of accuracy in that.
Garbage In – Garbage Out is very much a possibility in the case of Natural Language Understanding (NLU), because if we don’t process the text correctly, we will end up getting unwanted and irrelevant results from our applications and systems. It is not an easy task for machines to understand the language humans speak and the way we communicate. It is the nature of the human language that makes it difficult.
While the vendor Speech and Language Understanding Services are good with regular English vocabulary, the biggest challenge for enterprises to achieve reliable and predictable accuracy levels is handling specialized vocabulary in their domain and its usage in day-to-day operations by their staff. For example, think of the medical vocabulary, the drug names, medical conditions, or the various part names in an automobile company. How would your chatbot respond to dialogs with medical terms like Cutaneous, thorax, glossopharyngeal, ventroflexion, Annealing, and Austentization? That’s what we call as domain-specific vocabulary, and it is very important for your Conversational AI application to have a deep maturity in language understanding of this vocabulary.
