With raffle, users can write natural sentences like ‘my couch is broken, how do I return it?’ and receive the appropriate piece of information in exchange. We integrate with platforms where businesses keep their knowledge and documents like Google Drive and Sharepoint and provide seamless knowledge syncing and ML model retraining so the updated information always is available to the end users.
