Bigtincan Launches GenieAI Technology, Delivering Transformational Sales Productivity Gains to Customers
Bigtincan is pleased to announce the launch of GenieAI, artificial intelligence technology that enables sales, partners, customer-facing teams, and all employees to dramatically increase their productivity, improving how humans work and how they sell.
The new features are driven by the latest technology known as "large language model tools".
Bigtincan customers can take advantage of copywriting, content summarization, Q&A-style search, and a virtual personal assistant to help all users to increase both efficiency and effectiveness using a new approach to learning and content creation. These capabilities are important new underpinnings of Bigincan's vision of creating the buying experience of the future.
According to recent predictions from Forbes magazine, large language model tools "will change the business world enormously in the next couple of years."
"GenieAI is truly magical, providing users with a powerful, AI-driven platform to unlock their organisation's smarts," said David Keane, CEO and Co-founder of Bigtincan. Full disclosure - this quote was written by Bigtincan's GenieAI.
When asked for more detail, GenieAI continued: "GenieAI offers sales professionals the ability to quickly digest material and gain insights into the content's meaning. It is also capable of generating email templates that sales professionals can customise and send to their buyers. It's a game-changer for sales professionals looking to maximise their efficiency and use their time to better engage their customers."
The solution is built using the latest LLMs, including OpenAI's ChatGPT. GenieAI will be available across all Bigtincan Hubs, automatically synthesising information and content into something digestible - including auto-generated abstracts and automatically written emails to be used when sharing content. The GenieAI output can be further personalised by user-provided prompts. Users can also ask general questions with "Ask Genie" - and the answers provided are inclusive of the customer's scanned content. There is a large array of use cases that dramatically improve user productivity from general support and feedback to meeting preparation for a specific persona to summarization of content found within a digital sales room.
GenieAI will be available to customers beginning in Northern Hemisphere Summer 2023 with an initial pricing of $29 per user per month.
Financial Advisor Update
The Bigtincan Independent Board Committee ("IBC") engaged Morgan Stanley Australia Limited as its financial advisor to assist Bigtincan with the management and evaluation of inbound inquiries and expressions of interest regarding any potential control transactions.
Any such inquiries or discussions are preliminary in nature and there is no certainty any transaction will eventuate. Bigtincan remains committed to executing its strategic plan and maximising shareholder value. The Bigtincan board will only progress inquiries that are in the best interests of all shareholders.
Bigtincan remains on track for its guidance for FY23, being:
- ARR in the range of $137m to $143m.
- Revenue in the range of $123m-128m.
- Cash flow breakeven to be achieved in Q4 FY23.
