Welcome to the Uniphore blog

Just 3 years ago, Uniphore Software Systems was launched.

Before we got started, our founders were working with IIT-M’s Rural Technology and Business Incubator to understand the demands of mobile users across the socioeconomic pyramid in India. After months of research and field work, we had an in-depth understanding of the gap between the information and services demanded on mobile phones, and those that were available. We knew that we could play a role in bridging that divide by creating innovative mobile applications in local Indian languages to enable seamless, safe business connectivity with mobile users.

Today, there are already 1/2 million people interacting with our technologies every day.  Clearly, there’s been a lot going on.

We’ve been working with industry leaders in telecom, voice technology, and mobile applications. We’ve been expanding the boundaries of speech recognition to cover additional Indian languages and dialects. We’ve been improving speech biometrics systems to enable robust authentication for mobile users across the socioeconomic pyramid. We’ve been integrating our voice applications with other mobile capabilities, like SMS and GPRS.  And we’ve been developing our solutions to fit the needs of new industries.

Now, we’ve decided, it’s time to start sharing all this excitement with a broader audience. We’re launching our blog so that we can regularly communicate the stories behind the innovation, and get your ideas and feedback. We’re hoping to provide a personal, ongoing account of the solutions that we’re developing for transforming business operations and enabling seamless enterprise mobility.

As time goes on, we’ll use our blog to communicate with you from all sides of Uniphore. Our engineers will share insights on how they overcome technology challenges, our CEO will impart his vision for the power of mobile applications with IVR and speech biometrics to revolutionize business, and our COO will tell the tales of driving the culture of an innovative tech startup.

We also look forward to partnering with our customers to get out the word about their innovative new services, powered by our technologies. And we’ll join the dialogue of industry thought leaders who are exploring the future of secure and personalized mobile solutions.

We encourage you to be an active part of “Uniphore’s Voice,” and help us build a community that is as excited about speech-based mobility solutions as we are.
