Are you ready to listen to your customer? Really listen?

Conversational Commerce will revolutionize consumer-facing industries in ways not witnessed since the dawn of eCommerce. This is far more than a new interface or an additional channel in the omni-channel world. It is an entirely new way for brands to build relationships of value with consumers and an entirely new way for consumers to interact with brands.

Now estimated to be worth as much as $35 billion by 2020 for retailers alone, it’s no longer a question of whether you want to compete at Conversational Commerce, but how and when.

Featured Testimonials

Mark Taylor, Customer Engagement Lead, Capgemini Invent

Voice assistants will completely revolutionize how brands and consumers interact with each other. What makes voice assistants so exciting is that they are woven into the fabric of our lives, offering a simplicity and richness of interaction that consumers have never experienced before. Brands that are able to capitalize on the huge consumer appetite around voice assistants will not only build closer relationships with their customers, but create significant growth opportunities for themselves.

US focus group participant

I started using Alexa because I need to use a medical device four times a day and I would set reminders on it. Now, I also make purchases through Alexa, and it is rapidly learning new things with time.

German focus group participant

The other day I was in Cologne for a job interview, and it was easier to just talk into the cell phone and ask where to go instead of looking at street names.
