As the technology paradigm is getting redefined with AI and world is moving from Mobile First to AI First, we are the first company to create a SFA platform powered with AI”.
The AI powered SFA platform ‘ApplicateAI’ created by Applicate does all the logical and repeatable tasks in Sales, Marketingand after sales support with ‘Sales BOT’ and [brand] BOT. According to Madhusudan, CTO and Co-Founder Applicate, our SFA platform ‘ApplicateAI’ is built with a vision of creating an intelligent machine which will reduce human inefficiencies in Sales and would empower teams to increase their productivity and sales in way never thought of before”.

The best part of ‘ApplicacteAI’ is that it can get integrated with any data base or any existing automation system used by the companies. This would power their existing automation system with AI without discarding their investment made on automation over years, says Ranjeet Kumar.
