Coach AI

What is a Coach AI

With the new Coach AI in place, now a user’s Pitch can be scored using the AI technology along with manual grading. The Pitch creator can configure an AI Criteria and the user’s Pitch will be automatically scored out of 10 based on the set criteria. This super exciting feature will give users the immediate feedback they need to quickly improve their pitch. The AI score is based on the AI criteria that is set in the Pitch Module such as key phrases, pace, time duration, tone, etc.

How to enable the Coach AI

Customers interested in the Coach AI can get it enabled for their users by making a request to their SalesHood Customer Success Manager.

The Coach AI can be enabled for specific or all users within an instance.
