I am Pranay Jain, CEO and co-founder of Enterprise Bot. At Enterprise Bot we are transforming the world of insurance and banking by using artificial intelligence and conversational commerce.
Where do you see the biggest opportunities in fintech over the next five years? What problems urgently need to be solved?
The biggest problem in fintech is that the cost of customer support and customer acquisition is significant and growing exponentially (upto $5 a call). This makes it very difficult to provide the required service to customers, and results in hundreds of millions in lost revenues and additional costs every year.
What is pushing you towards international expansion?
Our solution, in the first 12 months of activity in Switzerland, has gained amazing results, with clients like Generali, PWC, SWICA and SIX Securities (Swiss Stock Exchange). We believe we are ready to provide this same level of accuracy, speed and deep technology to the rest of the world.
What do you see as the greatest obstacle to expansion into the global market?
As a startup, our limited brand recognition is the biggest obstacle to global expansion. With the key accounts Generali, PwCand others under our belt, we hope to quickly reduce this obstacle.
