Google’s Clay Bavor is teaming up with former Salesforce CEO Bret Taylor to launch a new artificial intelligence startup.
The two tech veterans have come together to create Quip, an AI-powered platform that will help businesses better manage their customer relationships and sales processes. The company has already raised $15 million in seed funding from investors including Google Ventures, Andreessen Horowitz, and Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers.
Bavor is the vice president of virtual reality at Google and was previously the head of product for Google Cardboard. He also led the development of Daydream View, a mobile VR headset released by Google in 2016. Taylor served as CEO of Salesforce from 2012 to 2018 before leaving to become a partner at venture capital firm Index Ventures earlier this year.
Quip aims to make it easier for companies to track customer interactions across multiple channels such as email, chat, phone calls, and social media platforms like Twitter or Facebook Messenger. It will use machine learning algorithms to analyze data points such as sentiment analysis or conversation topics so that businesses can gain insights into how customers are engaging with them over time. This could be used for things like predicting which leads are most likely to convert into paying customers or understanding what types of content resonates best with certain audiences.
The platform will also provide users with automated recommendations on how they can improve their customer experience based on these insights. For example, if Quip detects that customers are having difficulty navigating through a website’s checkout process then it might suggest changes that could make it easier for them complete purchases quickly and efficiently without getting frustrated or giving up altogether due diligence process when evaluating potential investments in startups.”
