ConsenSys uses Flowcode to power the Web3 economy

ConsenSys | June 24, 2022

ConsenSys
Consensys NFT and Flowcode, the most cutting-edge QR technology in the world, are excited to announce a strategic alliance to democratize access to NFTs and tokens. ConsenSys, a leader in Web3 technology and the developer of MetaMask, the most popular self-custodial wallet in the world, and Infura, a Web3 development platform, introduced ConsenSys NFT. With the first significant NFT platform to fully integrate offline to Web3 utilizing QR technology, Flowcode and Consensys are reinventing how consumers access the Web3 economy.

When it comes to tying Web3 experiences to the physical world, Flowcode is the market leader. The activation with POAP at the renowned Red Rocks theater was first announced by Flowcode earlier this year. All of the special event NFTs were delivered via Flowcode. In addition to VaynerX and Gary Vaynerchuk's VeeFriends, other recent Flowcode Web3 partnerships include VaynerX, where Flowcode-enabled special edition NFTs will be given away at their Cannes Lions events. Additionally, Flowcode held a pop-up this week for The Hundreds in their SoHo garage, enabling AR experiences, NFT minting, and cryptocurrency payments. Moonpay's much-awaited minting-as-a-service technology, HyperMint, was introduced to NFT.NYC participants in large part thanks to Flowcode.

"Flowcode is transforming the way consumers interface with crypto, which is why we are so thrilled to announce this partnership. We are committed to building Ethereum and global blockchain innovation; and partnerships like this help us accelerate our mission to decentralize the future."

Tyler Mulvihill, Global Co-Head, ConsenSys NFT

ConsenSys NFT users may now simplify payments and simply store and transfer their NFTs and tokens from any offline experience and setting thanks to Flowcode's next-generation QR technology. This new cooperation offers ways for users to quickly access their NFT collections on a Flowpage, Flowcode's unique, mobile-first landing page platform, in addition to means for Flowcode to validate NFT ownership. With MetaMask, which serves 30 million active users each month across the blockchain ecosystem, ConsenSys NFT is natively integrated.

The Web3 economy is now receiving the same service from Flowcode, which offers hundreds of millions of direct linkages from the offline to the online economies. The cutting-edge product suite from Flowcode, which supports DeFi partners, DAPPS (decentralized applications), and NFTs, integrates with the leading cryptocurrency wallets and blockchain protocols to promote widespread use of Web3 applications through DTC distribution.

Vonage Launches AI Studio

Vonage | September 16, 2022

Vonage, a global leader in cloud communications helping businesses accelerate their digital transformation, has launched Vonage AI Studio, a low code/no code tool to design, create and deploy customer engagement solutions that operate in natural language using artificial intelligence (AI). With these intelligent conversations, Vonage AI Studio helps businesses elevate customer engagement through personalized and automated interactions across channels such as voice, SMS, and messaging apps such as WhatsApp. The new standalone Vonage AI Studio enables developers and IT professionals to effortlessly build natural language customer engagement solutions such as virtual assistants for self-service support, billing updates, appointment scheduling, FAQs, and much more - with the ability to embed them into any application. Vonage AI Studio also incorporates machine-learning models that adapt by using higher-performing messages - for example, during high call volumes, for even greater efficiency. These AI conversational capabilities enhance interactions by enabling frictionless customer engagement wherever customers are, without losing context and insights. This drives a personalized customer journey across voice and messaging channels while creating and deploying end-to-end conversations in real-time. Vonage customer Ronlight, the sole distributor of Garmin products in Israel, leveraged AI Studio to create a virtual assistant within its contact center environment to automate and scale, improving efficiency, costs and overall customer engagement: "We created our virtual assistant, Ron, using Vonage's AI Studio and it has made all the difference in managing call traffic in our call center," said Avishay Pariz, CEO for Ronlight. "In fact, with Ron, our call center is now a 24/7 operation, successfully responding to more than 70% of our frequently asked customer calls without any human assistance at all. This has drastically reduced call resolution times, and empowers our live agents with the time they need to address more pressing customer inquiries and issues." Building Smart Interactions Built on Vonage's proprietary natural language understanding (NLU) and automatic speech recognition (ASR) algorithms that are already being successfully leveraged in AI Virtual Assistant for unified communications and contact centers, with Vonage Business Communications (VBC) and Vonage Contact Center (VCC), Vonage AI Studio uses a natively-built, visual platform that enables low code/no code creation of smart, automated design flows across engagement channels, with simple drag and drop modules and reply actions that require little to no developer expertise. This creates more intelligent communications channels - from inception to completion - removing the need for low-level AI integration, and simplifies the creation process for developers and non-developers alike - while accelerating time to value. Those businesses that prefer not to build their own conversational AI solution can take advantage of Vonage's AI expertise with a la carte services or a complete Virtual Assistant package. These services provide a turnkey, customized solution and user experience that includes setup, monitoring and/or billing across multiple vendors. "Today's businesses need to engage with customers across all modes of communication, seamlessly moving among channels and maintaining meaningful connections through every stage of the customer journey," said Savinay Berry, Executive Vice President, Product & Engineering for Vonage. "We've already seen how our customers are benefiting from the power of AI Studio capabilities by deploying AI Virtual Assistant within our unified communications and contact center solutions. With the launch of Vonage AI Studio as a standalone product, we are putting conversational building blocks right into our customers hands, powering automated messaging and speech-enabled applications that free up agents while providing their own customers with a personalized experience at every touchpoint." Building a Stronger Partner Ecosystem In addition to providing enterprise businesses with the tools to build smart engagement solutions, AI Studio also provides a unique opportunity for the Vonage API partner ecosystem. Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) can accelerate their development cycles to build competitive enterprise-grade virtual agents on any channels, and Systems Integrators (SIs) can offer differentiated service packages to businesses. Native to the Vonage Communications Platform, AI Studio gives these Vonage partners the ability to augment their existing platforms and offerings to provide their own customers with custom integrations into CRM, contact center, analytics and more. "Today's consumer demands the ability to connect and communicate with businesses easily, seamlessly and across the same apps and channels they rely on in their personal lives," said Jim Lundy, Founder and CEO of Aragon Research. "Similarly, businesses need the tools that enable them to easily create these kinds of meaningful connections, augmented by AI capabilities to add efficiencies to workflows and using natural language that doesn't take away from the customer experience. With AI Studio, Vonage is providing businesses across all market categories with the technology and expertise to understand and address their customers needs faster by making applications smarter and more intuitive." About Vonage Vonage, a global cloud communications leader, helps businesses accelerate their digital transformation. Vonage's Communications Platform is fully programmable and allows for the integration of Video, Voice, Chat, Messaging, AI and Verification into existing products, workflows and systems. The Vonage conversational commerce application enables businesses to create AI-powered omnichannel experiences that boost sales and increase customer satisfaction. Vonage's fully programmable unified communications, contact center and conversational commerce applications are built from the Vonage platform and enable companies to transform how they communicate and operate from the office or remotely - providing the flexibility required to create meaningful engagements.
