Yellow.ai, a global leader in conversational AI, announced tenfold growth in North America over two years. This remarkable success is attributed to significant customer acquisitions, continuous enhancements in product capabilities — especially in support automation and customer service solutions — ongoing product innovations, strategic partnerships, and key executive appointments. During this period, North America’s revenue share surged even as the company doubled in revenue YoY globally.Amid this growth, Yellow.ai recently ranked 13th in the Bay Area and 88th nationally on the 2023 Deloitte Technology Fast 500™, a ranking of the fastest-growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences, fintech, and energy tech companies in North America, now in its 29th year. The recipients of the Technology Fast 500 award are chosen according to the percentage increase in fiscal year revenue from 2019 to 2022. In this period, Yellow.ai experienced remarkable growth, with a staggering 1803 percent increase.
“With enterprises continuing to seek automation for improved customer support and reduced operational costs, our omnichannel customer support automation on chat and voice has been a major growth driver in the North American market. More than 20 enterprises have chosen our support automation solutions to bolster their call centers and enhance customer and employee interactions, ultimately yielding superior outcomes and ROI,” said Raghu Ravinutala, CEO & Co-founder of Yellow.ai. “What has worked for us in this market is our ‘land-and-expand’ strategy. We begin with a single deployment, and as enterprises witness the impact, they opt for our value-added solutions, expanding use-cases and channels, leading to an average deal size of $200K annually.”
In North America, specifically, Yellow.ai’s key achievements include:
- New deals across industries, such as utilities, hardware and software, finance, consumer goods, and services. Notable customer wins include Randstad, Ferrellgas, and Logitech.

Talking about the experience of working with Yellow.ai, Jessica Osborn, IT Operations Manager, Randstad USA, said, “Right now, we are just stepping into the AI world for support. We have enabled our employees to call in to receive their W2 in seconds where it was taking much longer before. Imagine sitting and waiting to file your taxes but you don’t have your W2 and you cannot get it in real time. The opportunity to provide efficiency and automation was a perfect use case to start.”
Yellow.ai’s robust product roadmap has played a pivotal role in fueling its growth within the North American market. In April, it introduced the Dynamic Automation Platform (DAP), powered by generative AI, allowing businesses to provide highly personalized customer and employee experiences. Building on this momentum, Yellow.ai launched YellowG, a groundbreaking multi-large language model (LLM) using generative AI and Enterprise GPT to empower enterprises to develop tailored solutions for various industries, streamlining complex workflows, and enhancing existing processes with Zero Setup. It also introduced the LifeCycle Optimizer, which crafts personalized user journeys using generative AI.
