Conversational interface-based devices are quickly gaining popularity with devices and technology like Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant (Google Home), Apple Siri, Microsoft Cortana, and an increasing number of new entrants into the space. Cognilytica calls these devices “voice assistants,” rather than the less-useful term “smart speakers.” PullString provides a voice technology platform that facilitates the collaborative designing, prototyping, and publishing of voice applications for a wide range of platforms. The solution has two major offerings: PullString Converse, an end-to-end software platform that empowers teams to create voice applications for Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and IoT devices; and PullString Conversation Cloud, which provides a runtime environment for these voice apps powered by conversational AI. The company’s offering is a compelling platform for voice application and voice content creators from a range of industries to consider as they create an experience for their conversational users. By focusing on non-technical users and creatives, rather than developers, PullString broadens the market for voice application development and puts more control and power in the hands of the line of business, which will be more apt to make use of these capabilities.
