Company Information

Aigent is an early stage startup focused on bringing advances in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to customer service.  Our goal is to help customer service departments interact more efficiently and effectively with their customers while handling voice calls. The ambitious and exciting software developed with natural language processing, content- and sentiment analysis ensures that the contact centre agents and their managers receive real-time advice while they are speaking on the phone with the customer.  The advantages are:

  • It shortens the call; the call center agent always answers correctly and consistent within compliance rules. 
  • It improves the quality of the call and leads to faster and better responses and decreases servicing costs.
  • It improves customer satisfaction.


We predict customer satisfaction and show the call center agent how the customer feels about the call, helping the agent to avoid escalations. We ensure that customers and agents achieve their goals better and faster than ever before. We are very result-driven, transparent and fast-moving. Our founding team has a strong background in the call center environment, providing access to data, call recordings and real-world users.



We're working with exciting technologies, including Artificial General Intelligence (AGI), Speech Recognition (ASR), and Natural Language Processing (NLP). Our mission is to understand a service conversation and build an elegant and effective user interface to leverage that understanding to make communication better.


We challenge each other and have freedom to test, learn, improve and to be innovative every day. We  look into new technologies, analysing in-depth state-of-the-art and experimental technologies to find the best possible solutions. We are looking for new Aigents who are creative, passionate and ready to push the boundaries in all areas. If you are into the latest technology, believe that only the sky is the limit we want to hear from you.
