​Flamingo AI releases business update following trading halt

ASX-listed artificial intelligence-based assistant provider confirms it now has 10 clients for its sales and service virtual assistants

Home-grown artificial intelligence assistant company, Flamingo AI (ASX:FGO), has confirmed 10 clients are progressing through paid trials and nine are now deploying its virtual sales and service assistants. 

In a business update following a requested trading halt by the ASX earlier this week, the company said clients now include Nationwide Mutual Insurance Company its only monthly recurring revenue client, Liberty Mutual, AMP, CHUBB, CUA, WISR and MetLife Asia. Two others which were unnamed.

Nine are deploying Flamingo's virtual sales assistant and one is deploying the virtual service assistant.

Flamingo AI is based in Sydney and New York and provides AI-powered virtual assistant platforms for enterprises, with an emphasis on financial services. Its platforms are known as ‘Rosie’, the cognitive virtual sales/service assistant, and ‘Maggie’, the virtual enquiry assistant, and new development ‘Libby’, an unsupervised learning capability or knowledge engine of the platform for data. 

The company also reported it has developed its own machine learning and customer journey technologies, with a number of patents pending.

In March, Flamingo commenced a trial with Liberty Mutual Insurance Company in the US with its cognitive virtual assistant guiding customers through auto insurance quotations. Liberty Mutual is currently in live evaluation mode where customers are interacting with Flamingo AI’s cognitive virtual assistants.

This followed confirmation of a trial earlier this year with Credit Union Australia.

Flamingo successfully raised $10m in capital in the December quarter of 2017. The company raised $5.1m in capital in September 2017 and $3m in 2016, and has achieved incremental cash receipt growth each quarter.

Flamingo kicked off operations as a cloud-based machine learning technology company focused on customer experience, and was acquired by ASX-listed player, Cre8tek, after being approached during an investment raising round in 2016. It then listed on the local stock exchange in November 2016.

You’re doing it wrong: Emotion doesn’t mean emotional

If you’ve been around advertising long enough, you’ve probably seen (or written) a slide which says: “They won’t remember what you say, they’ll remember how you made them feel.” But it’s wrong. Our understanding of how emotion is used in advertising has been ill informed and poorly applied.
