SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- ModuleQ® announced today that the company will build a sales productivity solution for Microsoft Teams, the new collaboration platform unveiled by Microsoft today and scheduled to launch in the first quarter of 2017. ModuleQ's solution is a chatbot: an artificial intelligence system that talks with users through a messaging app as if the chatbot were another human. ModuleQ's chatbot keeps sales teams informed about critical sales activities, resulting in shorter sales cycles and higher win rates.
"Chatbots are driving a once-in-a-lifetime paradigm shift in how professionals work," said Dr. David Brunner, ModuleQ Founder & CEO. "The current paradigm is email-centric. As professionals, we're overloaded with fragmentary information from hundreds of people and systems. Email overload slows us down and stresses us out. The new paradigm is chat-centric. Artificial intelligence works behind the scenes to organize our data, keep us on track, and accelerate us toward our goals." ModuleQ has chosen to optimize its new solution for Microsoft Teams. "Microsoft is the leader in knowledge worker productivity solutions, and now Microsoft Teams is the obvious choice for teams seeking to escape from email overload," said Brunner. "The ability to effortlessly organize projects, conversations, files, and related resources is transformative for busy professionals. We're excited to provide a solution that makes Microsoft Teams even more directly relevant to enterprise sales teams."
