NEW YORK, March 13, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Kasisto, creators of KAI Banking, the leading Conversational AI platform for the finance industry today announced that the KAI-powered assistant Stacy is in full production with Standard Chartered Bank in Hong Kong.
"Stacy's award-winning deployment with Standard Chartered, one of the world's largest international banks, continues our incredible momentum working with an A+ roster of banks creating the largest-scale Conversational AI production deployments in the industry," said Zor Gorelov, CEO and Co-Founder of Kasisto. "KAI gets smarter and improves its capabilities each time a bank like Standard Chartered leverages it at scale."
Stacy is trained to converse with Standard Chartered's customers in Cantonese and English on the bank's mobile app and website. With KAI's ability to power human-like conversations, Stacy is quick, responsive and feels like talking to a human.
"We have added another enhancement to clients' digital experience – Standard Chartered Virtual Assistant – Stacy, making banking simpler, faster and with a human touch," said Vicky Kong, Managing Director and Head of Retail Banking, Hong Kong, Standard Chartered Bank (Hong Kong) Limited. "Today, Stacy supports hundreds of unique banking questions and hundreds of thousands of ways to understand and solve customers' queries. It engages with customers about banking offers, branches and ATM locations, as well as nearby dining and retail offers, and provides instantaneous customer support. Stacy is beyond convenient and personal – and the more it interacts with customers, the faster it learns."
This approach has resonated with the market and industry, and Standard Chartered's Stacy recently won "Best Use of AI for Customer Experience" in The Digital Banker's Next-Gen CX in Financial Services Awards for 2019.
