What is artificial intelligence (AI) for business?
AI, not to be confused with Quickbooks Advanced Inventory, is a term that encompasses many digital technologies that all have one thing in common: they are based on the automated analysis of such a large volume of data that it would be almost impossible to study them manually.
At the beginning of the client lifecycle, AI for business could help in lead generation and lead nurturing. It understands your current clientele and searches in the universe of prospects for leads that will likely become your customers. From early interactions you have with leads, AI could do lead scoring to predict which leads will most likely convert, allowing you to put your limited time on the best leads.
Later in the client lifecycle, AI could help with client nurturing, supplemental and add-on sales, client monitoring, and maintenance. AI here typically monitors the purchasing behaviors of your clients and raises alerts if it detects important changes in behavior. It will automatically know what other products or services each of your existing clients are likely to be interested in.
There are also AI services for other areas such as inventory management, HR management, and manufacturing.
With artificial intelligence for business trending, here are the top 4 AI-powered apps available for businesses that have Quickbooks, when you search on the Quickbooks Apps marketplace.
