About EdgeTier

History

EdgeTier was founded with a vision to build cutting-edge artificial intelligence applications that move contact centres into a new era of efficiency and performance. We don’t believe that a single customer care organisation in the future will be able to compete without using assisted or automated decision making, powered by AI and machine learning. 

EdgeTier began as a boutique machine learning consultancy company wholly focussed on the customer care industry. We analysed tens of millions of real-life customer queries while working with customer care teams across a diverse range of industries such as travel, insurance, banking, utilities, financial services and energy.

The EdgeTier team realised that the true power of AI / machine learning in customer care is not in pushing customers away, but in building software that works for customer care organisations, allowing them to deliver higher-quality and more personalised care that their customers will love, while also reducing the cost to serve those customers.
