ALICE Receptionist wins StartupCamp 8 at the IT Expo

ALICE Receptionist StartupCamp 8“ALICE Receptionist can revolutionize the front desk like Nest did to the thermostat.”

That’s what a judge said to a live audience at the StartupCamp 8 event at this year’s IT Expo.  It was one of those moments that really makes you step back and reflect on why we work so hard to make ALICE Receptionist.  We are more excited than ever to change the way companies communicate with their visitors.

A great night at what was by far the largest competition event we have entered. Close to 1,000 IT Expo attendees packed the room to watch 4 companies compete for the title of best StartupCamp “Comms Edition.”

We had some great competition with companies TextGen, Perzo, and Perch.  All startups looking to change customer service, how we consume social media, and how we collaborate with each other in the workplace.   We are very grateful to have shared the stage with what were all class act leaders and innovators.

There could only be one winner at this event and we were humbled and grateful to be voted by the audience as best Startup.

Thank you Larry Lisser for putting on such a fantastic event and all the wonderful people at IT Expo.

The journey continues for ALICE, not to just create a great Virtual Receptionist but to fundamentally change the way you service your visitors.

Stay tuned for more great things from the ALICE Receptionist team.

Cheers!

ALICE Receptionist at SXSW V2V

Most of you have heard of SXSW, the huge collision of Tech, Music and Film in Austin, Texas.  What you might not know is SXSW has now branched outside of Austin and created a new event right in our backyard called SXSW V2V!photo

Why Las Vegas for a SXSW offshoot?  It’s simple, Las Vegas has a remarkable community called #VegasTech and it’s the most exciting startup hub in the country.  Seeing the potential of what Las Vegas is building from the Downtown Project to the several other startups spread across the Las Vegas Valley you can’t help but think that SXSW and tech leaders from around the world see Las Vegas as the next great startup city.

The ALICE Receptionist team demoed in Austin this past March with other #VegasTech companies and jumped at the opportunity to do it again here in Las Vegas at the SXSW V2V Startup Spotlight. The best part was we weren’t the only #VegasTech company at the Startup Spotlight! It’s always a pleasure to see the wonderful people from Tracky, an amazing collaboration tool if you haven’t tried it yet and we made some new #VegasTech friends from Cubby Road, a company aimed at making finding child care easier!

It was great demoing our Virtual Receptionist solution to all the attendees from entrepreneurs, VC’s, content creators, and all around amazing people who all contribute to the meaning of “V2V” which swswv2v.com states as: “Visionaries to Vegas, Vision to Venture, Voice to Voice, Venture to Vegas – all the variations of the V2V moniker carry the same theme, the movement from idea to reality.”

Thank you for another great event SXSW, until next time!
