Bench’s first digital employee – Amelia

Amelia is an experienced IT service desk engineer. She can troubleshoot VPN issues, handle ticket management, outlook issues, request new IT equipment, set up WIFI access, and perform tons of other administrative tasks.

The only thing that sets her apart from you or me – she’s digital.

Amelia is an industry-leading, cognitive AI solution from IPsoft – a disruptive technology company with two decades of experience transforming business performance through the use of automation and digital labour.

Her benefits include:

  • Greater efficiency and scale – Amelia performs 1000s of IT Service Desk tasks at the same time, so no more Service Desk ticket queues.
  • High productivity levels – She doesn’t experience boredom doing repetitive, administrative tasks.
  • Low costs – The cost for hiring Amelia are much lower than the costs and overheads of real people performing the same role.
  • No lengthy onboarding – She doesn’t need weeks of training – a ten-minute setup process is all it takes to get her up and running.

As a result, your business can utilise human intelligence for more high-value, complex problem-solving jobs, and drive your business growth and revenue forward.
