As businesses faced inflation and budgetary pressures, AI became more accessible. By boosting employee productivity and effectiveness, AI empowers companies to achieve more with less. Marketers using generative AI save an average of at least three hours on each piece of content, while sales and service professionals save over two hours a day by automating manual tasks. Business leaders are highly optimistic about AI, with 68% believing it can help their company scale in ways that would be impossible without it.

AI enables more time for impactful work:
According to our survey, 95% of professionals using AI say it helps them spend less time on manual tasks and more time on the most important and enjoyable aspects of their roles.
