DirectMoney inks deal to trial Flamingo


Australian-listed technology solutions and software development company Cre8tek has announced that  artificial intelligence company, Flamingo Customer Experience, has signed an agreement for a paid trial with Aussie marketplace lender, DirectMoney.

Cre8tek (ASX: CR8), which backdoor-listed Flamingo on the ASX last year following its acquisition of Agenda, a service designed to connect consumers and service providers across a range of industries, said the paid trial would be conducted over six months, beginning in April.

Under the trial, the Flamingo platform, comprising the cognitive virtual sales assistant, ‘Rosie’ and the journey assist platform, would be used by DirectMoney to trial guiding customers through an unsecured personal loan application.

Dr. Catriona Wallace, Cre8tek chief executive and Flamingo founder, said DirectMoney would trial the platform in order to provide their customers with a “market-leading customer experience, ultimately aimed at driving an increased online sales conversion rate”.

“This new paid trial underlines the increasing interest in the Flamingo platform across the Australian market.

“We continue to effectively execute our sales strategy across our primary geographies of North America and Asia Pacific and work towards converting our pipeline of opportunities from paid trials to monthly recurring revenue subscription contracts.

“We are thrilled to be working with another exciting technology company such as DirectMoney, who are passionate about utilising cutting edge technology to provide better financial outcomes for Australians.”
