Crowdcare has created an Artificial Intelligence (AI) platform based on machine learning. The company has focused on solutions for customer service organizations starting in the telecom and cable industries and has spent years gathering massive amounts of data to create a proven, working system in place at customer sites.

CrowdCare is leading the way in using AI to deliver fast automated customer service. Research shows that customers prefer to use digital channels and automation to get quick effective answers to their questions. Calling to talk to a customer service rep is generally a customer’s last choice but is necessary in many cases because the automated systems deliver such a poor experience. AI based digital care is solving this problem and CrowdCare has the most mature solution in the market.
