Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you are perhaps rushing out of the door to a meeting and you suddenly remember that you were supposed to call up and cancel another appointment?
Its in those situations where you really wish you had a secretary or someone there who you could just ask to perform that task for you.
Perssist offers a service to do exactly that – they handle all of those tasks that you simply don’t have the time or the inclination to do yourself and its all managed by an advanced and intelligent system that accepts your requests by various means and then passes them on the the appropriate professional who can carry out the task.
How does it work exactly?
Perssist was founded by Evan Britten-Bozzone and Albert Wang with the concept being to handle day to day tasks for people in the most intelligent and efficient way possible.
To make this possible they have invested an intelligent learning system that can accept requests via email, web app and voice message – with a native mobile app on its way shortly.
The requests are interpreted via text recognition and Natural Language Processing (NLP) in order to establish exactly what is required from each specific request. Once the request has been processed and categorized it is then passed on automatically by the system to the most qualified person for the task.
The specialist that picks up each task will have been chosen from a worldwide pool of workers who have been hand selected and already put through an extremely tough vetting process – with only 5% of applicants ever making it on to the team – based on their skill set being the most suitable for the particular task.
Some examples of the sort of tasks that might be carried out by Perssist specialists are:
- Calling up service providers to query bills
- Make, cancel or postpone appointments
- Find information on hotels, flights or accommodation
These are just a few examples, Perssist can be used for literally anything that you simply don’t have time to do. As long as it is a task that can be carried out remotely and then communicated back to you via voice of email then Perssist can find the right specialist for the job.

Perssist learns to understand you
Not only does Perssist accept, assign and carry out all of these tasks on your behalf, it also learns more about you from each interaction. The smart software behind the service will build and constantly add to a profile based on you, your habits and the things that you do and don’t like.
With this profile the service can be tailored to your specific needs and learns to understand how to best serve you over time.
