#artificialintelligence

Bengaluru, July 6, 2022: Bengaluru-based Convin.ai, a leading AI-driven platform that reimagines virtual assisted selling for businesses, today announced that it has launched an AI-powered agent assist platform that helps them better prioritize their collection accounts resulting in a 25% increase in the closure rate. The new platform also has a proactive alert mechanism and sentiment analysis that triggers a red alert in case of any shouting or abuse during the call so that necessary steps can be taken to tackle such a situation. The proactive alert mechanism has helped Convin's BFSI customers improve their CSAT scores by 30%. Three main pillars supporting the just launched platform are – 1. Automated quality management, which scores the call performance and identifies training opportunities for agents; 2. Call behaviour analysis which uncovers the behaviour outcome of calls (wins and losses) and 3. Automated quality coaching based on the above 2 that completely removes the dependency on archaic coaching methods. Convin offers a holistic platform that allows customers to interact at multiple channels in different ways, automates conversation analysis, assists agents to sell better, improves agent productivity, and enhances end-customer experiences.

Itilite secures $29M to automate corporate expensing – TechCrunch

#artificialintelligence

For the bulk of the past two years, the pandemic has put the kibosh on corporate travel of nearly any kind. This has dampened investors' enthusiasm in travel and expense (T&E) startups, predictably, whose expertise lies in creating software for travel and other forms of expensing. But as the appetite for in-person events and interactions returns to what it once was, T&E is again becoming a category of interest. Case in point: Itilite, a Bengaluru, India-based company developing T&E software, today announced that it raised $29 million in a Series C round co-led by Tiger Global and existing investor Dharana Capital with participation from Matrix Partners and Tenacity Ventures. In an interview with TechCrunch, CEO Mayank Kukreja said that the proceeds will be put toward "aggressively expand[ing] in North America via product innovation, sales and marketing and partnership development."

Whatfix nabs $90M to help workers onboard and get the most out of their IT stacks – TechCrunch

#artificialintelligence

"Digital transformation" has been on the mind of many an organization in the last year: the pandemic and the shift it's brought to how we work are speeding up investments in new apps, infrastructure and work practices to improve productivity regardless of where we sit all day. Now, it looks like we're on to the next stage of that journey: actually figuring out how to adopt and run with all that new tech. In a sign of the times, today a startup called Whatfix -- which has built a platform that helps make better use of tech investments by giving chatbot-style guidance to users on how to use apps, with the option also to apply AI to understand what a person is doing to suggest what actions to take next -- is announcing $90 million in funding. It will use the money to continue expanding its tech platform and hiring more talent to meet demand, said CEO Khadim Batti, who co-founded the company with Vara Kumar (CTO), in an interview this week. Sources close to the company -- co-headquartered in San Jose and Bangalore -- confirmed that the Series D round was made at a valuation of around $600 million, triple Whatfix's value in its Series C round last year.
