The voicebots market is still in its early stages in Europe but is one of the fastest-growing within the field of information and communication technology (ICT). By enhancing customer interactions and customer experience (CX), voicebot offerings seem ready to become one of the most valuable business solutions in the CX space.Latest advances in artificial intelligence (AI) have fueled some important progress for bots and speech technologies (particularly around natural language understanding) which, in turn, have shaped a growing, robust ecosystem for voicebot development. The voicebot offering is basically divided between large global providers, European vendors that use their own platform to develop enterprise-level bots, entry-level voicebot vendors, and individual developers/designers that rely on voicebot frameworks and publicly available application programming interfaces (APIs) to build custom voicebots.End-user preference for voice over text channels and human-like interaction to handle cases and solve problems are some of the many reasons why the market for voicebot solution sees high demand. In addition, voicebots deliver high value to companies in complementary areas to customer services such as helpdesk support, human resources, and inventory management. The analyst expects a sharp growth in voicebot applications over the next few years in the European market to the point where voicebots will become part of people’s routine life.
