Miami-based NovoPayment, a payment provider with broad reach in Latin America, has upgraded its platform to support corporate bots enabling consumers to conduct person-to-person payments and other transactions within Facebook Messenger, the company said in a Jan. 9 press release.

With its new service, NovoPayment aims to give banks, retailers and travel organizations a simple path to deploying their own bots on Facebook’s popular messaging platform, to automate certain common consumer actions including opening accounts, checking balances and transaction histories, making P-to-P payments, watching tutorials and getting answers to common questions, NovoPayment said in the release.

“We’re helping our clients to quickly configure and deploy their own bots for Messenger, accelerating innovation and generating new, mobile, differentiated and engaging transaction streams with limited intrusion,” said Anabel Perez, NovoPayment’s CEO, in the release.
