Through Artificial Intelligence and machine learning, Syd has the power to answer chatter questions on an endless list of topics and can fully automate up to 70% of inquiries, leading to employees focusing on high-value, revenue generating interactions and reducing call wait times.

"As we look to continue evolving Sydney Credit Union in an increasingly digital space, we are excited to be launching Syd and watching how the new channel will positively impact our overall member experience and improve member satisfaction. We know our members need added convenience in their daily lives and with the ability to assist with a wide range of topics anytime, anywhere, Syd is the innovative solution we've been looking for. We are proud of the work we continue to do to serve our membership and are looking forward to the months ahead as our members get to know Syd." says Carol Ripley, CEO at Sydney Credit Union.
