Nuance Signs Agreement with Oracle to Add Voice Capabilities to Wide Range of Oracle Mobile Apps08:00 EDT Wednesday, May 21, 2014
BURLINGTON, Mass. (Business Wire) -- Nuance Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: NUAN) today announced that Oracle® has selected Nuance voice and language offerings for a broad set of Oracle mobile apps. Under the worldwide and multi-year agreement, Oracle will use Nuance Cloud Services to add speech recognition and synthesis to certain mobile apps that support Oracle Applications for ERP, SCM, CRM, and HCM, Oracle Eloqua Marketing Cloud Service, Oracle RightNow Cloud Service and Oracle Taleo Cloud Service, among others.
As the workforce becomes more mobile, suppliers of enterprise applications face the challenge of making users as productive on the go as they are at their desktops. Despite significant advancements in mobile application design, a gap between desktop and mobile productivity often remains. Nuance envisions a workplace in which employees will be able to utilize state-of-the-art voice and language understanding capabilities to access and use enterprise applications in mobile environments – providing the same or even better efficiency as through their desktops. By leveraging voice technologies, Nuance believes it can significantly cut employee learning curves and improve productivity for mobile users.
“Mobile smart phones and tablets are quickly becoming the leading devices for interacting with enterprise applications, and Oracle has led the way through our broad set of mobile apps,” added Alan Fothergill, vice president, Oracle Applications Development. "Working with Nuance, we are also leading the way in using speech interfaces to make it easier and more natural to interact with enterprise solutions.”
Nuance's speech recognition and natural language understanding technologies power some of the world's largest consumer and enterprise solutions today, with more than ten billion transactions processed through Nuance cloud platforms. With proven technology, leadership, and unsurpassed speech experience, Nuance cloud solutions enable more human-like speech recognition experiences for nearly any device and platform, in more than 40 languages.
“Our work with Oracle promises to deliver groundbreaking capabilities to the Enterprise by using speech to deliver rapid access to information within Oracle solutions, to make it easier to place information into those systems,” said Robert Weideman, executive vice president and general manager, Enterprise Division, Nuance. “The future is limitless for transformative employee experiences and for improved quality, velocity and simplicity of enterprise information exchanged between employees and their organizations.”
