Video Contest Celebrates How Assistants Contribute to Business Success and Culminates With the Winner Announcement on Administrative Professionals Day
Foster City, Calif.—April 25, 2018— Conversica, the leader in conversational AI for business, today announced that the grand prize winner of its second annual AI Assistant of the Year video contest is Bevi, the Boston-based maker of high-tech and sustainable beverage systems.
This year’s winning video featured the Bevi marketing team sharing actual responses to outreach efforts from their AI Assistant, Rachel. Some responses were appreciative of the information she provided, including this one: “Rachel, it was a pleasure speaking with you. Thank you for educating me on your great product.”
Other responses were a bit more open to interpretation, such as: “I would be open to grabbing a coffee sometime and discussing this further.”
“We are proud to recognize our innovative customer Bevi with this year’s AI Assistant of the Year award,” said Carl Landers, CMO of Conversica. “We celebrate how our customers are not only solving real business challenges with conversational AI but also telling that story in creative and fun ways. All in all, this video was a great way of showcasing the real-life responses elicited from a Conversica AI Assistant.”
The company’s contest is held annually in celebration of Administrative Professionals Day, which falls on April 25 in 2018. Conversica invited existing customers to submit a fun, creative video on why their AI Assistant should win “Assistant of the Year,” and the first-place winner receives a grand prize trophy and delicious desserts delivered to the office every month from Harry & David.
Bevi is building a world without bottling plants, where networked machines deliver personalized beverages directly from the tap. The Bevi is a machine that mixes specialty drinks using purified tap water, fruit concentrates, vitamins and supplements. The Bevi system cuts beverage costs by 80 percent by purifying and enhancing tap water at the point of use.
