5 artificial intelligence productivity tools you can’t live without
Artificial Intelligence used to be a long-off possibility but now it seems to be manifesting all around us. It’s on its way to becoming a real business necessity, with 64% of businesses who have tried out these smart robots saying they depend on them for their growth. But it still feels far-off and inaccessible for personal use. However, there are plenty of brilliant and simple-to-use tools that can help you with personal productivity every day.
Here are just a few you can begin using for practically nothing right now.
1. Don’t waste time scheduling meetings: Hire Amy for free
Amy is an AI personal assistant that you can hire for free and set to work right away. How irritating is it going back and forth via email with someone, trying to find times that work for a meeting in your calendar? Amy does it for you. Include Amy in your conversation stream and she’ll suggest possible meeting times to your client that work for you, wait for their response, and schedule it right into your calendar. You’ll be notified in advance too, so you never miss a meeting!
2. Let Trevor organize your task list and calendar
Another assistant you may want to look into hiring is Trevor. Trevor will review your task lists from task management platforms and your calendars, and suggest the best times to complete tasks and optimize your schedule. He (if can we say that?) will identify the perfect time for you to complete a task based on your availability, and also notify you when it’s the best time for you to fit something in. This is a great tool to fight against procrastination. You can ask Trevor to add a task and he will immediately give you a selection of times in your calendar to pick from. It’s just like texting a personal assistant who’s always online.
3. Conversica will qualify leads for you using artificial intelligence
While you’re at it, why don’t you hire a whole AI sales team? Conversica is a lead qualification and follow-up tool that will let you focus on the leads that matter. If you’re a small business and you’re doing all of your lead research and qualification yourself, you’re aware of how time-consuming and exhausting the process can be. You’d rather be conversing with customers than leads. Can you imagine having pre-qualified leads – who have already had contact with your “team”- finding their way right to your inbox? Your assistant reads responses from leads, tailors her reply, and notifies you when a lead is looking promising. Even more impressive, 35% of this sales assistant’s messages get a response!
