Practically none of us is able to manage and plan things without missing any crucial information to be mentioned or person to be invited. The chaos that follows is well-known. The good news is that Kono.ai; an artificial intelligence secretary service provider will now be the savior.
Not Just Any Secretary
Kono.ai is the most skilled assistant that would help in arranging official or personal gatherings. The procedure is painless, and all that needs to be done is to hire the ‘Kono.ai’ assistant and add the ‘Kono.ai’ mail id. This assistant will later select and share the Google calendar synced with your mail with guests. Once the time is conformed Kono would then circulate the calendar invite. The concerns regarding sharing your business or personal calendar with an outsider is not convincing at it sounds it to be. Contrarily, Kono is willing to work at a rough time frame. Apparently, if the customer just sends a mail that says, “Let’s find some time early next week”. Kono would work with this uneven timeline and find a proper time to schedule the meetings.
For any gathering to be successful it is important that the guest confirms their arrival and also that the time slot selected suits them too. In case of amendments or any suggestions regarding the time from the guests side is also taken care off. Kono accepts retorts from the invitees too. They have programmed themselves in such a manner that their operators (AI) understand human language. Or else, Kono has provided options where the guests can opt according to their preference.
