Muscat, Oman: Data experience leaders Ooredoo, have updated their artificial intelligence (AI) chatbot, ‘Saeed’ with some exciting new features.

With an ever-growing list of abilities and services, and 24/7 accessibility, Saeed makes it easier and faster for Ooredoo customers to access the services and assistance they want and need.

Saeed is now able to identify customer type, whether mobile or fixed, prepaid or postpaid, during the chat, and offer relevant account-related services. Furthermore, additional information has been added to Saeed’s repertoire so that customers can find out about many more services just by typing in their enquiry.

Accessible through the Ooredoo app, as well as on the website, Saeed “speaks” English and Arabic, and is available around the clock to provide the quickest and best answers to customer enquiries.
