Companion mobile app.

look up customer information, and inquire about what's on their calendar. Users 
can retrieve existing data easier than ever before. 

"By 2020, Gartner (http://www.gartner.com/newsroom/id/3482117) predicts 30 
percent of searches will be done using audio-centric technology such as 
Amazon's Echo, Dot or Show," said Lorcan Malone, president and COO of

through simple commands to save time, free up their hands and increase 
productivity."
