We help businesses maximise value from every customer interaction

About us

In te reo Māori, the concept of ako means both to teach and to learn. It recognises the knowledge that both trainers and learners bring to learning interactions, and it acknowledges the way that new knowledge and understandings can grow out of shared learning experiences.


At ako we believe that AI driven applications mean continuous learning for us, partners we work with, machines we are trying to perfect, and for the customers who are interacting with these applications.

What we do

Ako focusses on applications of AI to solve real business problems. With a human-centric approach to AI, and in-depth knowledge of technology, ako ensures every organisation succeeds with AI now and in the future. 

Ako's practice is to focus on design and deployment of AI driven conversational technology on digital channels and call centres to automate workflow, reduce the cost of provision and most importantly, deliver a more satisfying user experience.


Ako's practice is to be somewhat agnostic about the toolsets used. With experience in most of the widely used technologies, Ako's conversation as a service approach help deploy AI with low risk and good ROI.
