Users receive a Card whenever a relevant update was detected or when they search.
Users can enter spoken phrases into the Now Assistant UI using the built-in Voice Recognition. This works on any Chrome browser and for many languages and accents. Just tap the mic and speak.
The Assistant is highly personalized for every user based on their context. It knows their roles and audiences, tasks, schedules, project memberships, location and time of day.
Now Assistant learns from this data to tailor which Cards a user can see, how often they will be shown and how important they are to the user’s job.
Instead of users seeking out information in multiple systems, the Assistant presents is proactively. So users no longer need to open applications, but the application’s API triggers Cards within Now Assistant in real-time.
All the user needs to know in order to make their decision is shown on the Card using the user-friendly Now Assistant Design Guidelines. In other words, you can just fly through your workflows and get back to work quicker.
When the user has made an input, their sentence is analyzed with Natural Language Processing (NLP) which helps the Assistant understand the intent of the user’s request so it can then be promptly fulfilled.
For example it could request a specific card, start a request or search for something.
The average desk worker spends over a third of their time hunting for information across multiple systems. It’s hard to keep track of all their updates, functions, login credentials, and knowing what system contains what data.
In Now Assistant you can lean back and let applications contact you whenever they have something relevant for you – and with Single Sign On you always stay logged in.
The Assistant offers different input and output methods that can flexibly adjust to the user’s current situation, e.g. in the kitchen you can use voice input, on a train you may prefer text input.
No matter whether you walk, talk, drive or cook – Now Assistant’s senses adapt to your context.
As a user types in a question, the Assistant suggests relevant search queries in realtime and fed by the searches in various backend systems.
Smart highlighting allows the user to see which queries are available and what intents the search is expecting from the user, e.g. when you type “who” it suggests “Who is user?” letting you know that it expects a name to make the search.
The Assistant learns over time what types of updates a user is most interested in and can adjust the frequency with which they are shown. For example if a user reads Sales news quickly and frequently they will be shown as individual cards rather than summary cards.
Similarly, if a user frequently searches for information for which a Card exists it will recommend the user to subscribe to it.
Almost none of today’s enterprise applications “speak” to one another. But Now Assistant is laid like an invisible mesh on top of all your data sources.
This allows it to freely combine and exchange data between applications, creating an intelligent enterprise data platform.
Whenever Now Assistant detects an update it will send a Notification Card to the top of your stream. Cards give the user all the information they need and let them take action, e.g. to approve a request.
Now Assistant tailors the card feed to a user's role, project memberships and location. And over time it can adjust the frequency with which you are informed depending on which channnel you are interacting with the Assistant and the time of day.
Ask Now Assistant for a colleague's phone number, an invoice number or your upcoming schedule and using Natural Language Processing it will answer you better and faster than any human assistant could.
Any connected source is searched simultaneously and delivers results as soon as the API responds.
