Alfred AI aims to transform humans into super-humans by strengthening their abilities. It's able to process text and audio specialized in CX in three languages. Spanish, Portuguese and English in which slang and other natural ways of language can be used. By implementing an innovative Machine Learning it understands and answers in a very friendly manner. Alfred AI is not just a bot is also a virtual agent able to respond chats, mails, tweets. FB, Instagram, WhatsApp and a phone call. It integrates with CRMs (Oracle Rightnow, Salesforce, Avaya) and other virtual agents such as Alexa or Siri but not limited to. One of the main difference with competitors is the fact that it only charges whenever a correct answer confirmed by the user is given. If a user states that the answer was not useful or it never answers then it won be charged. Alfred AI is different, is a CX specialist with empathy as main characteristic together with a high level of understanding.
Cons: Botengine has reduced the workload on the helpdesk department . However ,I fear we may come one day have an advanced Botengine ,years down the line ; which is able to respond to the current complex queries we respond to and thus when that day comes , why would my employer keep me at the job ,when a Bot can do a better job ,without ever getting tired?
