We’re a customer-driven and product-minded team within TELUS, responsible for key Artificial Intelligence initiatives, specifically building and developing Voice and Chatbot solutions.

The Automated Client Experience (ACX) team’s vision is focused on creating automated and contextual self-serve experiences for customers that reduces both customer and team member effort while increasing customer satisfaction.
