CEO & Founder, Forethought
Deon is the Founder of Forethought, the 2018 winners of TechCrunch Disrupt Battlefield SF. To overcome the information overload in enterprises, Forethought builds AI-powered products that proactively embed relevant information into employees' daily workflows, starting with Customer Support.
Customer experience is centric to a company's success. Yet bots are thrown in the front lines of customer interaction causing unnecessary friction with customers.
Who wants to go through a phone tree? What if instead of bots, we improved customer support agent workflows? Anecdotally, keeping humans in the loop increases customer satisfaction.
Ultimately augmentation, not automation, enables super-powered customer support agents, making everyone's day more delightful.
