Cognigy's Conversational AI Platform, COGNIGY.AI, provides companies with new and straightforward ways to create and control smart, AI-driven conversations with individual customers across channels and devices in the form of chatbots or digital assistants. Companies are creating natural dialogues between humans and machines and can design and scale loyalty and interaction with customers and visitors of digital channels more efficiently than ever before.
"People would like to have natural conversations. This also applies to conversations in digital channels and especially when the conversation client is a chatbot or a language assistant. Platforms such as Amazon Alexa or the rapid spread of voice control on mobile phones prove this and show a strong and steadily growing user acceptance. Our enterprise software solution COGNIGY.AI enables companies to keep pace with these customer expectations and integrate intelligent, cross-platform, high-efficiency dialogues into their digital communications," says Martina Yazgan.
