Sales Executive

FrontdeskAI (frontdesk.ai) helps local businesses acquire and retain customers through AI-powered support, sales, and marketing. Tight staffing and nascent web and mobile presence result in opportunities lost due to missing calls, insufficient customer outreach, and slow responses to customer requests. Additional staff, call centers, mobile apps, and traditional chatbots are often expensive and ineffective; they take time to develop and adopt and deliver restrictive user experiences. FrontdeskAI’s solution is a change in paradigm which delivers a remarkably human-like virtual assistant on modalities consumers love (text, voice, and web chat) to automatically engage customers, answering questions about products and services, booking appointments, placing orders, etc. In the beauty, wellness, and fitness space, FrontdeskAI has already driven more than half a million customer interactions, enabling businesses to substantially increase revenue and save staff time, while simultaneously delivering world-class customer experiences.
