Using Artificial Intelligence
FEVO, a social commerce technology company, has announced the launch of an AI (Artificial Intelligence) beta for its social commerce and ticketing platform. The AI toolkit will leverage large language models (LLMs) to enhance FEVO’s enterprise platform for merchants and improve efficiency. FEVO chief executive and founder Ari Daie said: “Our mission is to make our clients’ lives easier, and enabling AI on our platform will give them hours back in their day, allowing them to create differentiated campaigns at scale in seconds.
“Not only will this drive sales and efficiency – it also means more time to focus on the things that only a human can accomplish, like cultivating relationships with customers, partners and investors. And for the consumers, we’ll leverage AI to make their transactions and interactions with the brands we service more intuitive, fun and seamless. Combined, these innovations will have multiplier effects on loyalty, revenue and consumer satisfaction.”
