Speaking on the launch, Thomas Cook (India) Ltd president and group head – information technology and ebusiness Amit Madhan said, "Thomas Cook India has always been at the forefront of cutting-edge digital innovation that focusses on seamless customer experience. I am hence truly excited with the launch of TeeCee - a first of its kind chatbot offering customers a near human experience.
