Virtual assistants at work are still new features and have a lot to improve. 
The more features we have, the more we want new features.
In small environments we have "noise" between virtual assistants, making use inappropriate.
But in more distributed environments it is very good.
We still have a lot to learn (both, us and our Alexas).

Exceed.ai is helpful when a business wants to offer a 24/7 live service without live-staffing during that time, allowing the live staff to only focus on the pre-qualified leads (pre-qualified through Exceed's service). For example, if we can only assist a group of qualified customers who meet specific conditions, allowing Exceed to pre-qualify them may mean that 50% are qualified and 50% are not qualified, allowing our live sales agents to focus on the 50% who have already been qualified.

  • Though customisable, it is not the most intuitive and can take a while to setup appropriately for your organisation
  • It can be slow to pull in new inputs and it is difficult to integrate into other systems such as CRMs
  • A bit pricey compared to other options

During the initial setup and onboarding, we had a white-glove approach from the Exceed Customer Success team: weekly touchpoints to review and evaluate progress towards our stated objectives. Outside of our regular catch-ups, should any questions or issues arise, Exceed has a chat function that always seems to be staffed. The average response times to questions was 10-20 minutes.

Alternatives Considered

We looked at two other alternatives: Google Nest and Apple. But Alexa already has popular devices that many people on the team already had in their homes. And it would be easier to integrate into the professional environment. The cost of Amazon products is also much lower, which makes the product more competitive.

Our biggest issue with Pipedrive was during the implementation process. We quickly found their programming to be not that good, so we decided to switch to Exceed.ai It is an intelligent virtual assistant tool that can help you with your daily activities. Whether it is scheduling meetings, sending emails, or reminders, we are always at your service.

Return on Investment

  • Difficulties with technology integration.
  • Identify all possible uses.
  • We still lost a lot of time making new settings.

  • There is a significant benefit to using a service/virtual assistance to answer and qualify customers versus life staffing agents.
  • There is another benefit to cost savings by allowing our teams to automatically be scheduled to calendar invites with approved/qualified customers only.
