Why Voice First

Voice is the natural human-computer interface - yet for years voice did not work well. Since the introduction of the Amazon Echo in 2014 all that changed. As of Feb 2018, 1 in 6 Americans now have a Voice First device. Amazon is enabling its Alexa Voice Service in, not only its Echo devices, but also in 3rd party devices so it's now appearing in a diverse range of devices from cars to fridges.

It's our belief there is a paradigm shift occurring and now all conversational UIs should be designed as Voice First - so even a text interface should i.e. be designed as though it is being used for Voice. It's similar to the transition from desktop web UIs to mobile first UIs. Mobile UIs are simpler with larger UI components. Voice First UIs need to have short text and compact option lists and be simple, clear and consise.

We've been working on AI Assistants and Mobile App building technologies since 2005. In so doing we've learnt a lot and built up a technology expertise greater than most companies in the space.

We also have experience of developing beautiful User Interfaces for smartphones. In 2005 our founder designed and built the world's first Flash based UI app for the BBC, ITV and some of the top UK magazines. This service won awards for its beautiful UI. Flash is no longer a usuable technology on phones, but we've been working on to provide similar highly graphical UIs for the last few years. We use this technology beautiful native gesture based UIs. Our founder has also founded startups that ran services for major companies such as Nokia and Vodafone. For Vodafone the service ran for 4 million MAUs in 12 different countries and had an availability considerably higher than their own infra-structure.
