Voice Is The Enterprise's Next Great UI
With sales of voice devices predicted to hit over 50 million this year, voice is being touted as the biggest consumer tech disruption since the smartphone. And where consumer tech goes, enterprise follows, as we saw with BYOD, social media, and tablets. The global voice tech industry is expected to reach US$126.5 billion by 2023.
In the consumer world, Amazon's Alexa, Google's Asssistant, Microsoft's Cortana and Apple's Siri are gaining considerable attention and making it clear why sophisticated voice-controlled applications can be beneficial.
Voice user interfaces (VUIs) aren't just for the consumer arena. Though still in their early days for enterprise software, such as ERP, VUIs hold promise in making some work tasks easier and improving workflow in situations such as when mobile workers need hands-free access to important data.
Voice Is The EnterVoice Technology Will Change the Way Enterprise Companies Run Their Business.
VR integration in enterprise software is about more than just updating a business with the latest tech. The true value of VR integration in a business setting is the instantaneous access to data that it offers.
Tech giants like Google and Amazon are already experimenting with APIs that allow enterprise businesses to link their CRM and ERP systems to voice-activated controls. This grants users access to their company’s entire database of customer information and business data, all with a simple voice command.
