JLL has introduced JiLL, an AI-powered, conversational smartphone app that can help employees streamline their work and be more productive.
Users can use voice or text to converse with the app and simplify time-consuming daily tasks such as setting up meetings, locating colleagues, looking up lunch menus or shuttle schedules, filing service requests or finding a desk or conference room.
JiLL is a smartphone app that uses a conversational interface and artificial intelligence to simplify common tasks like finding a workspace or colleague, ordering food or scheduling a meeting.
While tens of millions of consumers benefit from smart speakers and smartphone assistants at home and on the go, this category of virtual enterprise assistants is largely missing in the workplace.
With JiLL, enterprises can empower their workforces by providing everyone an enterprise admin in their pocket. Users can complete everyday office tasks the same way they use voice interfaces at home. Examples include: “Hey JiLL, book a weekly meeting with my team,” or “Hey JiLL, find me an open desk on the third floor this afternoon.”
“Consumers feel empowered in centrally managing their digital experiences at home and on the go. However, at work, simple tasks are siloed and can be frustrating,” said Vinay Goel, Chief Digital Product Officer, JLL.
“JiLL leverages JLL’s vast datasets about buildings, user interactions and transactions with physical spaces to provide a personalized and intelligent conversational interface that matches employees’ consumer experiences. Over time, we expect JiLL to become an essential platform for hundreds of skills that help employees improve their daily productivity.”
JiLL is being piloted by clients this summer and will be generally available later this year to US customers.
“We understand that our success is linked to attracting and retaining talent,” said Jim Pazzaglia, Director-Global Business Services P&G, which plans to pilot JiLL in the coming months.
”Providing digital technologies that reduce employee friction points and resemble the functionality our employees are accustomed to using outside of work helps grow our organizational productivity.”
JiLL is the first product launched by JLL Labs, JLL’s in-house, global network of software engineers and product experts developing innovative and commercially strategic proptech products. JLL Labs is another example of the company’s commitment to technology leadership and complements its investments in the broader proptech industry through the JLL Spark Global Venture Fund.
JiLL was developed in the JLL Labs Silicon Valley hub in California. JiLL uses data from JLL’s experience with clients and physical spaces, and combines them with Google Cloud Solutions technology.
