    Presentation Overview

    How To Eliminate the Voice Application Bottleneck

    There is something challenging about voice applications. They are hard to design, difficult to implement and test, bothersome to integrate and deploy, and finally, challenging to track and fine-tune. Unfortunately, there is so much art involved in the creation of successful voice applications. We see this as a voice application bottleneck. The emergence of VoiceXML is fortunate and a step in the right direction. But is it enough? At Vocomo we do not think so. To truly remove the application bottleneck you will need much more than online VoiceXML development studios. Our research has led to an integrated technological and methodological framework that enables rapid creation of high-quality voice applications that are easier to design, modify, and maintain. Vocomo’s solution provides a complete end-to-end solution for the entire life-cycle of a voice application – from early-stage design to in-service reporting.
