"Since its introduction earlier this year, many of the world's top global brands have validated our vision of a reimagined consumer experience that addresses the demand for better, more connected, and more intelligent self-service brand interactions," says Joe Gagnon, Aspect Sr. VP and Global GM, Cloud Solutions. "By continuing to invest in enabling technologies and capabilities like LinguaSys, we continue to optimize and differentiate our best-in-class omni-channel customer service, creating greater solution separation from our competitors."

Language and speech technology, combined with artificial intelligence and intelligent assistance, will enable people to interact with machines in a natural way. The addition of the LinguaSys NLU solution addresses the growing consumer demand for using messaging services such as SMS, Facebook Messenger, or Twitter for customer service and support conversations.

"Our interaction through SMS and Twitter with the brands we engage with has evolved from one-way notifications to two-way conversations, empowering companies to automate omni-channel service interactions with consumers. Aspect customers can now dramatically increase consumer interactions while reducing the cost-to-service their customers," says Sanjay Gupta, MD, South Asia and Middle East, Aspect.
