Conversica is a Conversational AI tool that help enterprise marketing, sales, customer success, and finance teams attract, acquire and grow customers at scale across the customer revenue lifecycle. The AI Assitant works by engaging the prospect in a human like conversation over email in an effort to further qualify the prospect.
In keeping with our GitLab value of Transparency, our AI assitant is named "Alex Taylor" and it's role is a virtual assitant.
While rolling out Conversica, we will be using a crawl/walk/run method.
Crawl:Associate SDRs will be trained and answered a selected target audience of AMER SMB Trial leads with Personal Emails
Walk: We will take filters off of the selected targeted audience and expand across other audiences.
Run: We will be training all SDRs and rolling out to them.
