'Large' is a service bot that helps companies carry out simple office tasks. In many office environments, menial tasks often fall to interns or other low-level employees. This clever online program takes care of boring office tasks so that employees can attend to more pressing matters.

Large operates as a service bot, which is available from the business messaging app 'Slack.' The clever bot is designed to take care of simple office tasks such as scheduling a cleaner, calling in a handyman or organizing team outings. In order to use the bot, team members simply send their request to '@large' and then outline what they need done. Large is operated by a combination of software and human administrators that process the request and reply with the appropriate response.

Although Large is only available for business use, the app could have the potential to help entrepreneurs maximize their time as well.
