x.ai Launches AI Scheduling Assistants on Slack

Now you can use "Amy + Andrew" in your Slack channels and DMs

NEW YORK, Feb. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- x.ai, inc., an artificial intelligence company, today announced their AI assistants Amy + Andrew can now schedule meetings for customers in Slack.

After spending four years building AI assistants to completely remove the pain of scheduling meetings, x.ai moves even closer to that reality by giving customers the ability to use Amy and Andrew on Slack.

x.ai's vision for their AI scheduling assistants has always extended beyond email to other communications channels. Amy and Andrew ultimately will work alongside you, wherever you're working. Many x.ai customers (as well as the company's own team) already use Slack; being able to interact with Amy and Andrew within any Slack channel was the natural first step towards an omni-channel AI scheduling assistant.

"Amy and Andrew already relieve a huge amount of pain for our customers, saving them hours each week", says Dennis Mortensen, CEO of x.ai. "By adding the option to work with them directly in Slack, you remove yet another piece of scheduling friction—context switching."

Customers can install the x.ai app to their Slack workspaces to set up a new meeting, set reminders, and check on their meetings. Amy and Andrew understand natural language which means customers can use plain English to make scheduling requests via Slack, just as they do via email.

Early reviews from customers emphasize the ease of AI-scheduled meetings within Slack. "I had been chatting with a collaborator via Slack DM and it became clear we should meet up in person," explained Drake Pusey, Founder at Volition Project and Advisor at the Technology and Entrepreneurship Center at Harvard. "Without having to leave the conversation, I asked Amy to set up a coffee—she took care of the scheduling and I got the invite in no time. Winning!"
