Every year Aragon Research publishes its Hot Vendor Special Report identifying innovative vendors who offer platforms that transform the relationship between enterprises and their customers.

If you check out the previous years’ Hot Vendors you’ll see that it’s a who’s who of tech. This year, Exceed.ai has been named a Hot Vendor in the conversational AI category.

What Is Conversational AI and Why Is It Newsworthy?

So what is exactly is conversational AI and why should you care about it?

Conversational AI is the use of artificial intelligence (AI) to automate communication with people in a natural way and at scale.

You see conversational AI in action everyday with chatbots, and voice-activated devices like Amazon’s Alexa.

How Conversational AI Can Help Marketers and Salespeople

Exceed.ai offers an AI-powered conversational assistant for marketing and sales. 

Exceed.ai’s assistant can have automated two-way conversations with leads over chat and email. The assistant handles the repetitive steps in conversations, from initial contact all the way to scheduling a call for a sales rep.

We realized that marketing and sales teams need a more efficient way to scale without missing out on good leads or losing their personal touch.


With Exceed.ai’s conversational assistant, you don’t have to worry about leads slipping through the cracks or not getting enough follow-ups. The AI sales assistant contacts, qualifies, follows-up and books sales calls with every lead. Your sales team is then free to do what they do best and close deals.”

Recognition is great, but we couldn’t do it without our customers’ help.
