One of its new products Course5 Discovery is a personalised voice and chat assistant powered by Natural Language Processing (NLP), identifying relevant data and performing analytics modelling but communicating them in a natural conversational manner to the business user.

Cross-Tab Group’s other business –Borderless Access – will operate as an independent entity.
