"Our custom AI is a new paradigm in digital communication," said Joey Zhao, CEO and co-founder of 22Miles. "Imagine a customer-facing chat that not only knows your brand inside out and communicates in a manner that's indistinguishable from a live person. AI Backoffice is an indispensable ally for internal users, capable of tackling advanced queries, providing insights and helping make fast data-driven decisions." 

The three new tools include: 

  • AI Assistant: A consumer-facing chat interface that can be trained to assist with anything from wayfinding to product information. AI Assistant can hold meaningful customer conversations to guide visitors, customers, and travelers in retail, conferences venues, facilities, and more.
  • AI Backoffice: An internal AI that recognizes user identities, tailoring responses to their specific roles and data access rights.
  • AI Command: A user-friendly CMS backend interface for quick content editing and digital signage command execution.

Further breaking down these new tools, a 22Miles release explained that AI chat capabilities bring a new level of engagement to digital signage and other corporate communications. Whether the questions are typed or spoken, in English or any other language, AI Backoffice and AI Assistant are equipped to understand and respond, making them invaluable tools across various sectors like retail, healthcare, and government services.

AI Command is included in Content Manager 7.5, while AI Backoffice and AI Assistant are customizable system add-ons. Content Manager 7.5 includes templates to seamlessly incorporate AI Assistant or AI Backoffice into 22Miles digital signage and apps; they can also be added to existing third-party digital signage applications, mobile apps or websites as a custom module. In either case, 22Miles can swiftly deploy AI Assistant or AI Backoffice to hundreds or thousands of units to create interactive experiences with very little lead time.
