AssistYou is founded by Bram van Zanten & Pepijn de Rijk. Both are former Google employees and started working around 7 years ago (2011) at the European headquarters of Google in Dublin – Ireland.
In their jobs at Google they were account representatives responsible for small- medium- & large companies. During their coffee breaks they were always exchanging thoughts about how to improve the overall business of their clients.
Ultimately AssistYou was born out of two important components:
- Our burning passion for technology and in particular voice technology. And no folks, please don’t be afraid, voice will not be the revolutionary, the world breaking apocalypse that will change our lives in a way that it will never be the same anymore.. No!However, we do believe that voice can make our lives more efficient, faster and more effective… But more on that later..!
- Our burning frustration towards bad service-oriented companies. To name just a few real-life-examples: calling a restaurant in the morning just to make a simple reservation but unfortunately the restaurant is closed and does not answer the phone.
