    What is an Ai Recap?

    Ai Recap uses Dialpad’s proprietary NLP and NLU models to instantly summarize your calls and meetings, collecting valuable Ai insights and action items to keep your team on track and ensure your clients receive the service they deserve.

    Ai recap combines the following four Ai features into a single, easy-to-read, format: 

    • Ai Call Summary - An Ai-generated summary of the call.
      • A summary of key conversation points and topics that can be customized per call.
    • Ai Outcomes - The call outcome, defined by Ai.
      • Was the issue resolved? Do you need to circle back? 
    • Ai Call Purpose - The reason for the call, categorized by Ai.
      • Call purpose categories let you quickly spot patterns and easily track conversations related to the same topic. 
    • Ai Action Items - Follow-up tasks, determined by Ai
      • Action Items remind you about tasks discussed in the call, such as sending a report or follow-up email. Not only that, calender events can be created right from the Action Item.
