The Problem

Businesses currently rely on humans or traditional SMS automation (drip texting) to qualify and nurture leads. This applies to both inbound leads (e.g., ad -> website -> fills out contact/quote form and leaves phone number) and the re-engagement of existing leads in a CRM.

Example industries where this happens: real estate, insurance, home services

The Solution

An AI SMS assistant that qualifies and nurtures leads in a personable way while responding 24/7 and automatically following up.
