Nanci the Chatbot to the Rescue

Chief Experience Officer Bob Beatty explains to Auto News how an AI solution helped so many when the coronavirus pandemic hit.

The COVID-19 pandemic sent the world into a tailspin. Everyday activities, such as paying your car loan or lease, suddenly became an issue. Enter Nanci, the friendly chatbot that helped thousands of customers with their questions and concerns.
