360 Finance Begins Offering Intelligent Interactive Voice Technology Free-of-Charge to Support Battle Against Coronavirus
SHANGHAI, China, Feb. 11, 2020 -- 360 Finance, Inc. (NASDAQ: QFIN) (“360 Finance” or the “Company”), a leading digital consumer finance platform, today announced that it has begun offering its intelligent interactive voice technology in cooperation with 360 City Security Group, free-of-charge to hospitals, local communities, villages, and companies to support the battle against the spread of the coronavirus.
Leveraging its cutting-edge Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) technology, the intelligent interactive voice technology will be used to efficiently collect medical information and travel history in a more effective and accurate manner. The intelligent interactive voice technology is able to automatically make outbound calls to residents and company personnel and interact with them to collect and assess information including their health, recent travel history to Wuhan and Hubei Province, and current location. 360 Finance’s backend systems then quickly compile and carefully analyze the statistics collected to provide greater insights and allow staff to make better decisions on how to proceed going forward.
Plans are in place to integrate the intelligent interactive voice technology into a 24/7 online free consultation platform jointly-established by 360 Finance and Medlinker, a Tencent-backed social networking platform for doctors, to provide society with preliminary medical diagnosis and home quarantine solutions during the outbreak which will reduce the burden currently placed on front-line medical professionals.
