  • About Hello Lamp Post

    Our Mission

    Hello Lamp Post helps governments and organisations make cities into more human-friendly places by engaging with citizens at a hyper-local level in a fun and playful way.

    Our Service

    Hello Lamp Post is a unique chat-based platform that can give a “voice” to any kind of place, space or street object. Users are invited to strike up chats with objects powered by our custom-made conversational AI via SMS, Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp on their mobile devices.

    The objects that people talk to are friendly and inquisitive. They can share helpful information, like bus times and parking instructions, as well as ask interesting questions and share what other people have said. Our backend aggregates the opinions that users have shared, and we turn these into insights for decision makers. 

    Our Story So Far

    Hello Lamp Post has been growing rapidly since we incorporated in 2018. So far this year over 20 new clients have subscribed to our services and our team has doubled in size. Hello Lamp Post is being used in places around the world including Westminster Council, MediaCity, The London Olympic Park, Vancouver, Sydney and more.
