To truly capture the essence of Contented, turn to one of their customers. Meet Jenae, a busy Nurse Practitioner from the University of Auckland: “As a busy Mum navigating a high pressure career as a Nurse Practitioner working both clinically and in the tertiary education section, I immediately saw potential for AI to impact my day to day. The end solution is like nothing I’ve had access to before; I can now create unlimited case scenarios that can be used for clinical teaching, clinical examinations, tutorials and more. A task that would previously take hours of work can now be achieved in minutes.”
