“What attracts me most to Behavox is its best-in-class technology, highly talented team, and impressive client roster,” Gulati said. “Customers trust Behavox for many reasons, one of the more prominent being that the company constantly innovates and enhances its product and technology, continually breaking down barriers in artificial intelligence and machine learning.
