SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - September 06, 2016) - Conversica, the only provider of artificial intelligence-based lead engagement software for sales and marketing, announced today that CEO Alex Terry will be speaking at the Silicon Valley Insurance Accelerator's (SVIA) conference, Insurance Disrupted 2016, a showcase for new technologies with the potential to change the industry. Mr. Terry will also participate in the panel discussion "Big Data, Analytic, AI Driven Customer Engagement, and Distribution Management" with experts Abhas Gupta, principal with Wildcat Ventures; and Maarten Sierhuis, founder of Ejenta and Director of the Nissan Research Center Silicon Valley. The conference is being held September 7th and 8th at the South San Francisco Conference Center.
The Conversica® AI software powers automated sales assistants who contact, engage, nurture, qualify and follow up with leads via natural email conversations and without human involvement. The AI personas track the best lead sources, deliver the hottest leads to sales people, re-engage old leads and get an overall higher return on marketing investment for customers in not only insurance but many B2C and B2B industries.
"There are exciting and dramatic changes occurring in the insurance industry," said Alex Terry, CEO of Conversica. "As the demographics of insurance customers skew younger, new communication channels are necessary to address them. Our automated assistants have already been involved in millions of digital conversations, and we are seeing the adoption of AI growing swiftly. I am excited to share our experiences with executives from the most innovative insurance companies at this week's conference."
Conference attendees are invited to visit with Conversica experts at the conference to see how AI-powered assistants are having real conversations with engaged sales prospects today.
