Scorpion is excited to announce the launch of our new product offering, Connect with AI Chat. Businesses of any size now have access to a conversational AI chatbot that is available 24/7 to answer questions about their business and services.
Previously, major corporations benefited the most from this type of technology, but that is changing. For more than 20 years, Scorpion has been working to empower local businesses, and AI Chat is one more way we are leveling the playing field. Every business that uses Scorpion’s AI Chat feature benefits from a customized chat feature that is available 24/7.

Turn Website Visitors into Customers
AI Chat automatically collects client details and preferences to enable lead qualification, prioritization, and nurturing. When website visitors are ready to take the next steps, they can choose to contact your business whichever way they prefer, including:
- Texting your business directly
- Scheduling time on your calendar
- Sending an email
- Requesting a call from your business
21% of website visitors who interact with Scorpion's AI Chat feature choose to take these next steps. Not only does this increase your lead count, but the leads you spend time interacting with will be much more qualified.
“Our customers want convenience and a great experience from the first time they interact with us on our website, all the way through to their service and purchase,” said Toby Tippets, President of Big Mountain Heating & Air Conditioning. “Scorpion’s AI Chat can answer questions about our services, help customers schedule an appointment, and even facilitate payment of an invoice. It’s been like having an employee providing personalized customer service directly from our website.”
What Does Scorpion’s AI Chat Feature Mean for Local Businesses?
It means that local businesses have access to a powerful tool that provides them more opportunities to convert new leads and customers than ever before. Scorpion’s AI Chat is designed to address the unique challenges and opportunities that local service businesses face.
While existing generative AI solutions sometimes struggle with inaccuracy or inappropriate responses, Scorpion’s AI Chat has been specially tuned to deliver factually accurate, up-to-date, and safe responses. It also follows industry-specific workflows and behavioral guidelines developed through Scorpion’s more than 20 years of experience with law firms and home service professionals.
“Generative AI technology like OpenAI’s GPT models offer unprecedented opportunities for saving time through automated workflows,” said Scorpion Chief Data Scientist Matt Bentley. “But making AI safe and effective for local services businesses requires a suite of supporting technologies, much like electricity requires infrastructure and specialized tools to become something that can be safely used by everyone.”Learn more about AI Chat and how Scorpion uses industry-leading technology to help you run your best business.
