"We believe that we are uniquely positioned to help companies strengthen their existing customer relationships with an automation-first approach."
TORONTO (PRWEB) November 18, 2020
Ada, the leader in Automated Customer Experience (ACX), today announced it ranked 15 on Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500™, a ranking of the 500 fastest-growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and energy tech companies in North America now in its 26th year. Ada earned its spot with three-year revenue growth of 12,483%. Ada also ranked 3 on Deloitte’s Technology Fast 50™, Canada’s preeminent technology awards program.
“Recognition on both the Deloitte Fast 50 and Deloitte 500 Technology list is a testament to the continued growth and momentum of the Ada team, and a mounting market interest in the value of automation,” said Mike Murchison, Ada co-founder and CEO. “The conventional agent-first, service model is outdated and unable to meet the soaring demands of businesses and customers, and even more so on the heels of this global pandemic. Regardless of industry, most companies cannot hire and train people fast enough to keep up. Our clients and partners have helped us define a new category of automated customer experience that takes advantage of the benefits of automation without sacrificing the meaningful engagement customers have come to expect. We believe that we are uniquely positioned to help companies strengthen their existing customer relationships with an automation-first approach.”
An automation-first customer experience strategy leverages artificial intelligence to enable organizations to scale efficiently through self-service. With Ada’s AI-powered, personalized ACX platform, customers can automate more than 80% of customer conversations and boost live-agent productivity, while saving millions in costs. Ada’s customers include Zoom, Air Asia, Shopify, and Upwork among others.
