UnificationEngine®-powered SmartContact™ connects Zave users to workflow management platform with WhatsApp
Singapore (July 2, 2019) — Conversational AI company UIB today announced that rapidly growing AI workflow management platform company Zave will use its UnificationEngine®-powered SmartContact™ to allow their customers to use WhatsApp to connect with their New Accounting Task-Bot, task management, and other CRM services.
Zave Founder and CEO Alan Schmoll said, “Zave is eliminating inefficiencies and user engagement issues. With our Zave SmartContact from UIB, Zave users can easily snap photos of their receipts and message them on WhatsApp to Zave for managers’ review and sign off. Users and managers save time and can track all reimbursements and bills in a single platform.”
UIB CEO Toby Ruckert added, “In addition to filing receipt photos via WhatsApp, Zave’s users will also use WhatsApp messages to query the Zave SmartContact on pending secretarial and accounting matters.”
Continued Ruckert, “Users will be able to create new tasks by sending WhatsApp messages to the SmartContact, such as changing a shareholder, adding a director, etc. Users will be able to query the status of their companies in natural language (e.g., “When is my AGM due?”, “When is the financial year end?”, etc.). The NLP will be processed and managed by Zave. WhatsApp Business solution provider UIB’s UnificationEngine Conversational AI platform will be used to send and receive messages on WhatsApp.”
