"Natural language AI creates an impactful new way to interact with business tools. Combining this innovative interaction model with our UC services makes it easy for end users to get more done. Customers can also reduce costs by leveraging AI as an intelligent first level of contact for sales or customer support, freeing up staff cycles for higher value engagements," said Jeff Singman, VP Product, Kandy Business Solutions. "We're pleased to be working with an innovation leader like Over.ai as we rapidly extend AI within our Kandy portfolio to enrich personal and business process interactions."
Ribbon is also integrating Over.ai's virtual assistant "Omega" into its UC solutions, making it easy for users to send emails, texts, set up meetings, take action items on conference calls, or get answers to common questions via ordinary voice interactions.
"Voice AI is really about enablement and simplifying processes. Users can simply ask for the information they need or give task-related commands, and get results more quickly, easily and cost-effectively," said Noam Fine, CEO of Over.ai. "These benefits translate to multiple use cases, whether by adopting virtual agents to extend a customer's access to your sales or support team or improving staff productivity via task automation. We're excited to integrate with Ribbon's extensive portfolio of UC and CPaaS tools to deliver accurate and impactful results."
