New capabilities and applications deep dive
Journeys, in action
The new Journeys allow companies to set business goals and products to move and get the AI to do the segmentation, message drafting and segmentation on their behalf. Giving the right message or product suggestion, to the right person, at the right time with an ability to purchase or have a back and forth interaction.
Before Journeys, every marketing effort required multiple configuration steps that ultimately made it impossible to have hyper-personalization at the user level. Crafting messages, selecting products, uploading different audiences; and when the time for the message came companies didn’t have the ability to respond, let alone buy. This is because most marketing tools were created for the email era and not for the bi-directional messaging era or with an AI-first architecture. With Journeys, companies will not only be able to drive behavior to meet business goals, but through the native integration with Yalo’s conversational commerce, it allows for product recommendations and suggestions that increase ticket size as well as an ability to instantly purchase the products that are offered with one-chat, which in turn improves conversion rate.
If Journeys are conversations starters, Genies are conversations drivers
Sales Genie will not only be the best sales person for your company, but also the most diligent student. With the ability to securely train on all your product information, customer interactions and sales manuals; Sales Genie not only guides your customers and recommends what to buy but can also share tips on how to best use the products they are buying.
Sales Genie is integrated to Yalo’s predictive selling algorithms to leverage recommendations and suggestions as well as running within Yalo’s native conversational commerce suite. This allows Sales Genie to leverage features like Native WhatsApp catalog to simplify the purchase process and allow customers to buy without leaving the conversation; but can also live in other interfaces such as companies website or apps. Yalo built the ability to adapt this genie to specific rules and ways of interaction that each company has so that the experience is truly reflective of your brand.
Industries in which Sales Genie is natively trained, but can be adapted to each company’s needs:
CPG’s (Consumer packaged goods)
Being able to offer and recommend to millions of merchants exactly what products to buy, is a big challenge. Now with Genie, CPG brands can advise small merchants not only on the best products to buy but also how to place them to drive more sales. This leads to increases in ticket size, as well as improving the mix.

Industries in which Sales Genie is natively trained on, but can be adapted to each companies needs:
Choosing the right outfit or determining the perfect gift can be a time-consuming and energy-draining task. However, with Sales Genie, retailers now have a personal shopper that offers recommendations based on styles or preferences and allows for easy purchasing with a simple "yes." This leads to increased conversion rates and higher upselling of products.
Traditionally, mechanics often face the hassle of making numerous calls and engaging in extensive back and forth communication to find the right part. With Sales Genie, auto part manufacturers can now offer immediate guidance to mechanics, simplifying the process of selecting from thousands of parts and enabling them to place orders promptly. This not only boosts sales but also enhances customer loyalty.
Small farmers and agro sellers often struggle to determine the right fertilizers and medicines for their crops. With Yalo's Sales Genie, farmers can now request recommendations by simply sending pictures for plant diagnosis and receiving precise treatment suggestions. What's more, they can conveniently place orders directly within the chat. This not only lowers the cost of sales but also fosters customer loyalty, resulting in increased sales.
We've also introduced pre-trained Sales Genie tailored for the construction industry. These specialized Genie empower independent merchants to make informed product purchases and offer expert guidance on how to effectively sell these products.
Genies can learn any skill that you need them to with Genie Trainer
If one of the previous genies doesn’t meet your needs, with Genie Trainer, Yalo is bringing the possibility of creating your own Genie to serve any business need. The trainer allows you to securely upload different data sources, as simple as uploading an attachment to an email and in seconds it learns about the new domain. This is for companies that want to customize their genie and use it for other purposes. For instance, a CPG company wanted to use a Genie to provide their sales force with a sales coach and trained it with more than 1,000 documents to know about all the policies and best practices when offering products and serving customers.
