Otta's take

Xav Kearney headshot

Xav Kearney

CTO of Otta

Moveworks provides IT service and helpdesk support through an AI-driven chatbot. Its system utilizes information about an employee, such as their role and seniority level, to deliver the correct information or carry out processes. Moveworks claims to solve 30% of IT support tickets within weeks of implementation.

In 2024, Moveworks opened a data center in Australia and its service has seen strong uptake from large enterprise-level companies, where IT teams deal with hundreds of requests at a time, helping to minimize backlog and gain back employee time. As more and more workers move from office to home or hybrid, IT support requests have boomed, opening up the opportunity for Moveworks to expand its client pool and provide solutions to help with this change.

Competitors such as Electric offer similar automated IT support services, but Moveworks has invested heavily into creating an AI system that is conversational and easy to use. Automated solutions with machine learning capabilities can also identify cost-saving opportunities. When unused software licenses are estimated to cost companies billions of dollars a year, there is money to be made by identifying and removing these avoidable costs through AI.
