Concierge Bots in AtBot are custom bots that you register with the Microsoft Bot Framework that can communicate with other bots to provide a single conversational UI for multiple bots. These bots can communicate with other bots built in AtBot or External Bots built on the Microsoft Bot Framework and support the Direct Line Channel.
