Integrating the voice interaction with digital touchpoints across the customer journey

Voice technology has already reached a maturity and comfort level that will change the way that business-consumer relationships are built.

With technology companies now applying for banking licenses and banks calling themselves technology companies, the battle for retail banking is clearly intensifying. Organizations are changing their business models and product distribution, or rethinking the role of the branch all in an effort to better address how consumers interact and use their financial products.

Voice-led technology is not the future, it is here today

  • Comfort with voice technology is very clear—roughly 80% of the consumers are satisfied with their voice shopping experience.
  • Roughly 20% – 30% of all mobile phone searches are done by voice and this is forecasted to increase to over 50% by 2020.
