Verity Inc. announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire the intellectual property, certain customer agreements and other strategic assets of NativeMinds Inc. Both companies’ boards of directors have approved the all-cash deal, valued at $3.8 million. Verity will acquire NativeMinds’ integrated set of tools which provides an interactive contact point for customer inquiries. It includes the NeuroServer Engine that manages the interaction between a customer and a virtual representative; the vRep Management System (VMS) to track, measure and improve a vRep solution; and a set of reporting and analysis tools. The integrated self-service solution Verity expects to quickly deploy will provide a customer, employee or any other user a single response to their common questions. Driven by a natural language processing capability, it gives the most appropriate response to the question posed, drawn from a continuously managed index that discerns appropriate responses for each question. If the response calls for a form to be completed by the individual, this solution will also have that capability.
