Our History

Junction AI came from our own experience in launching a local discovery guide app.

Junction AI is based on the experiences of having created and operated a local discovery app called Instant Local. InstantLocal was a B2B2C app, that provided locals an image based guide on offers, events, products and services that were nearest/newest.

The app was live for 8 months in 2016/2017 on Google and Apple app stores. In this time, we on-boarded 800 business, large and small, across Austin and Dallas. The app and our company was featured in CultureMap Dallas as a “startup to watch right now

In July 2017 after sessions with users, clients and travel and hospitality companies we gained deeper insights on the challenges they faced. From these learnings we developed a technical proof of how AI could harness location, context, behavior, and values to individually personalize offers to each customer. We pivoted the company to a B2B focus as travel sector companies made it clear they wanted to improve existing channels rather than adopt yet another.

We were successful in becoming 1 of 10 finalists in the Marriott, Accenture Interactive and 1776 Travel Experiences Incubator in August 2017 on our technical proof of concept. Our goal was to validate sector interest. In November 2017 we continued to test our concepts, becoming finalists in the Toronto based Next AI program.

Now Junction AI has grown, building on the experiences of the earlier app and recognizing the capability AI brings in addressing the information overload consumers face and the challenges businesses face in individually engaging customers in a personal and targeted manner.

Understanding Context Is Key

The right context is everything in marketing and sales. Get it wrong and you can lose the sale or worse, lose the customer.

Today, it’s not enough to be customer-centric. You need to understand the customer’s context to deliver an exceptional customer experience.
