Node provides an horizontal AI platform-as-a-service that allows companies to use AI to make smarter business decisions, without the need for data science capabilities or significant capital investment. It also helps users interpret the predictions it generates, so companies can take the actions needed to help transform their businesses. Node can be used as a standalone platform, or with third party applications a company is already using, such as Salesforce, Dynamics, Marketo, Zendesk, Workday and more. Node is already working with Fortune 500 companies to improve customer retention and expansion and to bolster loyalty programs by putting product offers in front of the right customers.
