Beth White was inspired to create MeBeBot to bridge the gap in employee support within companies using AI.

MeBeBot has grown significantly since its inception in 2018, driven by the rapid advancements in AI technology. The Austin-based company has raised a pre-seed round of investment. In the latest Ideas to Invoices podcast edition, White talks about her entrepreneurial journey and MeBeBot’s success.

Here are seven key takeaways from the podcast interview:

·  AI in Employee Experience: MeBeBot leverages AI to provide a “digital front door” for employees, making their interactions with workplace systems more efficient and consumer-like. This includes using AI chatbots integrated with platforms like Slack and Teams.

·  Generative AI and AI Evolution: The evolution of AI, particularly with generative AI, has opened up new opportunities but also raised concerns about its impact on the workplace. Beth emphasized the importance of working alongside AI rather than being replaced by it.

·  Hybrid AI Platform: MeBeBot’s hybrid AI platform combines generative AI with domain-specific models and includes a human-in-the-loop process to ensure accuracy and compliance, protecting companies from potential legal issues.

·  Customer Success and Real-Time Data: The company has achieved significant milestones, including integrating AI capabilities that enhance employee support and provide real-time data for better decision-making. Customers like IGT and E2open have seen substantial benefits from using MeBeBot.

·  Diversity and Inclusion: MeBeBot promotes diversity and inclusion internally by having a diverse team and externally supporting customers’ diversity initiatives. The company is a certified Women’s Business Enterprise and actively promotes diversity in tech.

·  Ethical AI for HR: Beth highlighted the importance of ethical AI in HR, emphasizing the need for responsible use of AI and educating organizations on its implications. MeBeBot started a LinkedIn group focused on ethical AI for HR professionals.
