SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 31, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- AceBot, the popular chatbot that drives productivity for teams that use Slack, today announced the launch of its latest skill, lead management (lead.acebot.ai).
Currently in private beta mode, the new lead management skill joins a robust set of features that includes expense reporting, task management, polls, and ratings. Like the other skills in the AceBot feature set, the lead opportunity management skill will operate via simple commands that make managing and nurturing leads and opportunities as simple as having a conversation without having to leave Slack.
AceBot is part of new breed of companies building tools that use conversational AI instead of traditional graphical user interfaces, and the benefits of conversational AI are staggering. In the case of lead management, instead of having to manually enter data into spreadsheets or your CRM, you get started by sending the message "lead" to Ace. From there, Ace asks you questions about your contact, if you've discussed pricing, the probability the lead will convert to a sale, or if there are other others competing for the business.
Ace creates a lead "dossier" and also gets the team to work collaboratively until closure. For teams that currently use a CRM to manage leads, Ace will guide you through how to migrate your existing leads during the onboarding process.
Built for sales teams and applicable to both inside sales and field sales, Ace streamlines the way you track/monitor your leads and opportunities. It also manages assignments and actions across the extended team, helping you keep tabs on your leads and close more deals faster.
"Using a graphical user interface translates to entering information manually and extraneous clicks that take time," comments Ralph Vaz, Co-Founder and CTO of AceBot. "But with a conversational user interface, people can manage leads via simple commands. It saves them time, prompts them to do more with their data, and lets them be more productive."

AceBot.ai is a Slackbot built for one common goal—to drive your team's productivity and make them more efficient. With skills that help teams report expenses, manage daily tasks, conduct polls, and rate policies, your team can get more done faster without having to leave Slack.
