    #29 - Rudy Sales Assistant - Salespeople's Future #1 Tool

    Jeff Smith discussed the development of an AI healthcare-related app called "Rudy Sales Assistant". The app, designed to eliminate the need for a Customer Relationship Manager (CRM), is intended to make note-taking and data entry easier for salespeople. Despite the CRM's deep rootedness in the enterprise, the app is expected to streamline the sales process by tracking salespeople's activities and suggesting a weekly schedule. The Rudy App utilizes data created by the salesperson's mobile phone usage to provide reports on their activities, including driving routes, phone usage, and health data. The ultimate goal is to create an application that can suggest a weekly schedule for the salesperson. The host expressed their enthusiasm for the app and their vision for it to foster idea exchange and credibility in the field of healthcare and AI enterprise software.
