Intermedia Cloud Communications, a leading provider of intelligent cloud communications and collaboration solutions to businesses and the partners that serve them, announced the launch of Intermedia Unite® AI Assistant, a business productivity tool using generative AI to help employees access information more easily and automate repetitive or time-consuming tasks.
By building AI Assistant directly within the chat interface of its Unite mobile and desktop applications, Intermedia is leveraging the power of AI to help organizations of all sizes improve employee collaboration, efficiency, productivity, and customer care.
Recognizing the growing demand for secure and accessible AI solutions, Intermedia created Unite AI Assistant so users can complete tasks, such as writing content, summarizing information, performing calculations, write and review code, and much more, faster than ever and with high-quality results. Because Unite AI Assistant sits within Intermedia Unite, users access it right from the same app they are using to make calls, have video meetings, share files, and chat, instead of leaving for public, and less private, generative AI sites.
Unlike other AI services that store user interactions to train their own solutions for use by others, Unite AI Assistant operates on a privacy-first principle. Unite AI Assistant is built on leading third-party generative AI technology, but it is intentionally designed and configured so information is not stored within the broader generative AI engine, helping to ensure that user data remains confidential within the business that is using it. Further, as information is securely stored for each business using it, organizations that utilize the multi-channel communications storage and retrieval tool – Intermedia Archiving – can quickly access Unite AI Assistant communications by its employee base.
Intermedia developed Unite AI Assistant as part of its Intermedia SPARK AI Technology suite of services. SPARK AI is foundational, AI-powered technology that is intelligently and responsibly built throughout Intermedia’s communications, collaboration, and contact centre platform to help businesses achieve their full potential.
“With the introduction of Intermedia Unite AI Assistant, we’re taking a significant step forward in making AI accessible, secure, and an indispensable part of the workplace,” said Mark Sher, SVP of Product Marketing, Intermedia. “Whether it’s helping to draft emails, memos, or other content, summarizing data, or assisting with research, Unite AI Assistant is yet another example of Intermedia designing and delivering technology that helps businesses of all sizes gain greater efficiency and productivity.”
Administrators on Intermedia customer accounts can enable the Intermedia Unite AI Assistant with just one click. This streamlined process eliminates the hassle of individual installations and configurations, saving both time and resources. The ease of implementation helps ensure that businesses can quickly harness the potential of AI-driven productivity.
“Intermedia’s launch of Unite AI Assistant underscores a growing trend in the industry towards integrating AI-powered tools into everyday business operations,” said Zeus Kerravala, Founder and Principal Analyst, ZK Research. “The combination of privacy-first design and user-friendly accessibility further positions Intermedia as a frontrunner in making communications solutions both secure and convenient. By addressing the increasing demand for AI-driven productivity enhancements, Intermedia is providing a valuable resource for businesses seeking a competitive edge and a more efficient work environment. It also offers channel partners another differentiated offering to help stand out in the market.”
