Voice is expected to account for 200 billion searches per month by 2020.

Apple’s Siri handles more than 2 billion commands a week. Twenty percent of Google searches on Android are conducted by voice. Alexa is in over 7 percent of U.S. households. With more than 24 million Amazon Alexa and Google Home units sold in 2017, it’s clear that voice user interfaces are the next phase of advancement in seamless human-machine interaction.

How we do it

Building for Voice

Voice design

Step 1


We apply a variety of user experience and conversational research techniques to validate the best voice approach, understand what consumers want from your voice application, and craft a persona that accurately reflects your brand.

  • Analyze requirements
  • Conduct user interviews
  • Understand localization and language needs
  • Draft dialogues
  • Build Voice User Interface (VUI) diagram
  • Develop a persona
  • Define multi-platform strategy
  • Write conversational copy
Voice development

Step 2


In the development phase, we map what users will say and how your voice will answer. We make sure that there's a path for every utterance, and then conduct thorough testing before deploying the application.

  • Generate utterances
  • Implement VUI diagram
  • Scale for multiple platforms
  • Apply test suite
  • Quality assurance
  • Deploy

Step 3


We can quickly take you through the process of submitting your voice app and gaining approval through our unique partnerships with leading platform providers.

  • Submissions
  • Approval
  • Consulting

Step 4


After launching your application, we're able to continually implement changes based on consumer feedback and demand for new features, ensuring the best possible voice experience for your users.

  • Review feedback
  • Integrate new features
  • Add utterances
  • Tweak voice copy

“We have setup the digitalSTROM integration via the Amazon Echo Skill in a way that all features and capabilities of digitalSTROM are immediately available. Saying “Alexa, tell My Butler that I want to have breakfast” will immediately trigger the user defined action.”
