Scotland’s understaffed Public Sector is struggling – Conversational AI can fill the gap

Webinar: 7th September - Register

During our Webinar, you will hear how Conversational AI can rescue Scotland’s public services by deflecting up to 40% of contact requests, enabling users to self-serve 24/7 in the most effective way.
