The overwhelming majority of organizations see voice-enabled experiences as important (67% “very important”, 27% “somewhat important”) for their customers, according to a study by Adobe and Advanis, which also found that 9 in 10 already have resources in place for voice.
The report details plenty of optimism around voice: close to two-thirds strongly agree that voice-enabled experiences will drive conversion / increase revenue (66%), increase consumer engagement (65%) and increase consumer loyalty (64%).
