GrapeTree Medical Staffing launches conversational AI solution built on Teneo

Iowa-based specialist healthcare recruitment organization , GrapeTree Medical Staffing , has launched a Conversational AI ( CAI ) solution which has been built using Artificial Solutions ’ SaaS platform , Teneo .

The solution will help to support the online job applications and interview processes that candidates experience while interacting with the GrapeTree portal .
The virtual assistant ’ s goal is to reduce the volume of candidate drop out as they move through the online interview process , many of whom do so due to a lack of guidance and information . The assistant is also on hand to provide information to candidates before key interview steps , helping to prepare individuals and increase the rate of successful hires .
Furthermore , key data is collected throughout the online process , allowing for informed and data-driven decisions to be made by the organization , such as streamlining and content support provision at different stages of an application being received and an interview being processed .
Joaquim Bargalló Angerri , Director of Customer Success for Artificial Solutions , said : “ It ’ s great to see that GrapeTree has gone live with its Conversational AI solution . In the first half of January alone , the virtual assistant handled 17k API calls alone , demonstrating the instant impact that the technology can make . As is the case with most CAI deployments , and especially those built on Teneo , once the results are measured and the instant improvements can be seen , a scaling process begins .”
