Capacity brings conversational AI to a support automation platform for the entire technology stack. The platform’s goal is to answer user questions and automate repetitive support tasks, such as asking about the company insurance plan or getting travel reimbursements.

The St. Louis-based startup has a partner program for distributors, outsourcers, service providers and other business types, according to Capacity.

In January, Capacity closed an additional $27 million for its Series C round of financing, bringing the round’s total to more than $38 million, according to the company. Capacity promised to use the money toward hiring and enhanced product capabilities.

The company reported a 124 percent growth in annual recurring revenue year over year at the time.

Before CEO David Karandish founded Capacity in 2017, he served as CEO of question-and-answer website Answers for about five years, according to his LinkedIn.
