Alexa and Google Assistant Development
Virtual assistants are changing how we interact with technology and brands
Alexa sits on well over 100 million devices across the planet. Google boasts that it’s Assistant has an install base of 10x this number with over 1 billion devices answering everyday queries. With adoption rates for virtual AI assistants more rapid than ever, voice is no longer a future technology but a daily fixture in everyday life.
Give your brand a voice
There are almost an infinite number of possibilities for how you could be using Alexa Skills and Google Actions, so it’s important to understand exactly what your opportunity is, how your market behaves, and how you could and should be interacting with customers. There is no point developing a skill or action that doesn’t positively affect your users’ lives and your business. So we take time to understand your business and customers. By working collaboratively with you, we explore how to deliver the very best, memorable and value focused voice experiences that encourage repeat use and create positive brand affiliations.
Ensuring your Alexa Skill isn’t a conversation killer
The success of your Alexa Skill or Google Action will hinge on how easy and intuitive the conversation is. By mapping out scenarios and identifying conversation paths we can create conversation trees, rules, and anticipate the most appropriate replies. Understanding your conversation architecture means your users will feel like they are in a more natural conversation with their Alexa device.
Tailor-made for your audience
We use our experience of user-interface design, our high performance cloud platform, and voice interface expertise, to build 3rd party Alexa Skills and Google Actions from the ground up, so that your customers can begin interacting with your brand using voice.
Ready for Amazon and Google
Once you’re fully satisfied with the build, we can work with you to launch your Google Action or to get your Alexa Skill added to the Amazon Skill store, ready for your users to download and begin using on their device.
“We’re always keen on new ways to improve our visitor experience of the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials, and new technologies like this are a natural next step in users’ experience. I was very impressed with the demo, and the final outcome is fantastic, more natural sounding than I had expected.”
