Develop Custom Alexa Skills

custom-alexa-skill
Amazon’s Echo and its Alexa voice services are growing quickly. In fact, they’re moving fast enough that Apple and Google are now trying to play catch-up. Brands are even further behind. Most have no presence on these platforms. They are ghosts. When consumers ask about the brand or product, Alexa has no response and an engagement opportunity is lost. Sometimes it’s worse when Alexa does have a response and the content is not exactly what the marketing team would prefer.

What is Alexa? What are Skills?  

Think about not having a website presence. Would that be a problem? That is exactly the situation for many brands and organizations today when it comes to the voice web and Alexa. However, there is an added challenge. Voice-first user experience is significantly different than visual-first user experience.

XAPP is applying our deep expertise in voice-first user experience (UX) and technologies to help organizations transition to Alexa.
