We have developed Koncierge™, an AI technology that brings the immense power of Generative AI to an unprecedented engine that runs English as Code. Using Koncierge™ anyone can now describe what they want to be automated, and their automation is generated – all in auditable English. That means no developers, no complex tools, no bots."
