Proactive engagement: The missing piece in appointment scheduling technology


While artificial intelligence (AI) is usually marketed as the technology to provide the step change in the way we conduct our lives (think self-driving cars), its true beauty lies in the fact that mundane everyday tasks – those that may be supremely complex, but rather tedious and inefficient for the average human – can now be automated. The low hanging fruit on this tree is particularly bountiful. Take for example the number of appointments required in any given year; everything from car servicing, dentist appointments, broadband installation, kids’ piano lessons. According to research, the average person will spend nearly 43 days of their life waiting on hold and that’s even before talking to the correct person and attempting to resolve your issue...

We think that's 43 days too many. Download our whitepaper Proactive engagement: The missing piece in appointment scheduling technology to learn more about how automation can play a large role in saving time and cost for consumers and businesses alike, while make the experience for each a whole lot nicer.
