Voice control – the next major development!

9th August 2017

In our latest Saturday Interview with The Herald, David Romilly, Business Development Director, explains how voice control is the next major development and how Waracle offering is expanding more into voice control, health mobile and smart homes.

As mobile app developers, we see that most major institutions across banking, financial services and pharmaceuticals are waking up to the digital reality and we’re here to help when it comes to companies out-sourcing certain aspects of their digital offerings.

Voice control

Technology is not slow in advancing and we’re seeing great interest in voice control, health mobile and smart homes. Voice control – such as the technology used by Apple’s Siri, Microsoft’s Cortana, Google Home or Amazon Echo – is very much seen as the next major development.

“As voice comes in, it is going to disrupt many industries, it’s going to disrupt the way people use technology. When you watch children now, voice is second nature to them and that is an incredible significant shift in user behaviour.” says David Romilly.

David says, “That’s where I feel we operate on a different plain to mobile operators in Scotland. We’ve elevated ourselves out of ‘we’ll develop you an app for your business’ to ‘we can take on a whole programme of mobile work to customers who use your app around the world’.  We’re now knocking on doors of big consultancies.”

Take a look at The Herald interview and you’ll learn more about how Waracle was spun out of Abertay University and started out being the first company to develop an app for the Scottish Government, as part of its Love Food Hate Waste programme. Rapid growth has grown our client base with Imperial College London and NCR. And, then came Clydesdale Bank – we’re now proud to be the bank’s on the ground app development partner, working in their building.
