ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Phobio, a leading provider of software and services that empower the retail industry, today announced a new version of its mobile communications platform, Rodio. The new Rodio integrates artificial intelligence (AI) to deliver automated experiences for users and improve internal communications. Phobio will demonstrate the Rodiobot at the CES High Tech Retailing Marketplace on January 9-12, 2018 in Las Vegas.
Rodio provides a two-way communication system designed for organizations to send important updates, promotions, and other strategic messages to remote and geographically-dispersed workforces. Announcements can be sent to select teams or to the entire organization to ensure everyone is informed and connected at all times. By driving company-wide collaboration, teams can work together more effectively and deliver better results. Rodio is available for iOS and Android devices and ideal for retail, hospitality and other sectors. Currently, Rodio is widely deployed at leading mobile retailers throughout the United States.
Specifically designed for organizations with millennial-centric workforces, Phobio’s Rodiobot leverages AI technology that utilizes conversational language and interactive workflow to empower employees. Users simply ask questions and Rodiobot returns an immediate answer; driving operational efficiencies throughout any enterprise workforce.
“We are excited to demonstrate our AI-driven Rodiobot at the world's gathering place for consumer technologies,” said Phobio CEO, Stephen Wakeling. “Millennials currently make up one-third of the nation’s workforce; it is imperative for organizations to integrate technology and tools to easily connect with them. Rodio is an intuitive platform that keeps your workforce informed, engaged, and connected. The new Rodiobot technology not only makes it even easier to onboard employees, it also provides them with tools and information to be more productive and operate more efficiently.”
Additionally, Rodio offers a central system to track and measure the delivery of messages and notifications. To boost employee engagement, real-time reports allow managers to see which members opened the messages and automatically re-notifies those who haven’t. By promoting organization-wide communication, Rodio empowers teams to take ownership and solve problems, which improves overall customer service and satisfaction.
Phobio will demonstrate Rodio at the 2018 CES High Tech Retailing Marketplace at Booth 32004, Tech East, LVCC, South Hall 3.
