Our Investors 

The world needs chat and voice bots and yet, they can be infuriating to use and hard to fix. To be personable, bots need to learn the intentions of what users want to do.  We automate bot training to understand user intentions. As a result we cut call transfers by 70%, boost customer satisfaction by 4x and grow sales leads by 5x.  This unique blend of intellectual property and passion for innovation has brought together a strong investor portfolio dedicated to transforming the quality and performance of digital chat and voice bots.
