The integration of virtual assistant technology into AI Foundry’s Agile Solutions will enable financial services, banking, insurance, and healthcare organizations the opportunity to streamline business processes, such as new account opening, mortgage applications, and insurance claims, etc. The skill announced today can be customized for many vertical markets and applications to support numerous business processes.

“Today organizations in every sector are prioritizing digital transformation initiatives to launch new products and services, gain market share and win new customers. With that, customers are demanding a fantastic customer experience using the plethora of devices at their disposal,” said Steve Butler, general manager at AI Foundry. “AI Foundry helps make end-users part of a business process and our new virtual assistant skills take this to a new level.”

AI Foundry’s offerings have distinguished themselves with the use of the latest in machine learning technology to automate organizational business process, workflows and feedback to end-users using an organization’s website. With the advent of this new virtual assistant capability, end-users will get immediate feedback whether using a smart phone, Echo, or any other Alexa-enabled device.

“We are excited to have AI Foundry join us for FinovateFall 17. Their participation with virtual assistant technology will be of great interest to our audience as they look for new technology offerings that can help differentiate their organizations in the marketplace,” said Greg Palmer, VP of Finovate.

“For years, voice input to a business has been relegated to pre-canned phone menus, with little utility or scalability,” noted Alan Swahn, AI Foundry’s vice president of marketing. “Virtual assistants have shown that voice is finally in equal standing with typed input and provides a new level of customer responsiveness.”
