Phonexia – leveling up

Phonexia recently celebrated it’s 10-year anniversary. And, while we’re growing (new team members) and changing (new leadership), many things remain the same.

Since the very beginning, we have worked passionately to ensure that people and businesses are able to leverage the power of their voice. With our partners, Phonexia helps people all around the world to process their speech data however they intend to. We make the world a safer place by helping police and military prevent national threats, fight organized crime, and identify criminals. We improve telephone services by providing contact centers with analytics.

Phonexia automates and simplifies the world with speech technology. We help people help people.
And we want to continue doing that.

We are creators. Creators of technologies that people considered science-fiction just a few years ago. There was a time when a keyboard and a mouse were the only ways to interact with computers. Today touchscreen interfaces have become normal. In the near future, how quickly and readily will we control our devices, and environment, with voice commands?”We’re confident of our direction in the field of speech technology and the impact our company will have in shaping the role these technologies play in our lives.

“Our mission is to help people to access intelligence in all they say.”

But we are not alone. There has been a significant increase in machine learning applications and new companies working on similar technology. Competition is more ubiquitous and fierce today than ever before.

Therefore, we’ve made several steps to accelerate and strengthen our development and growth. But, technological advancements are something of a secret, and not to be shared in a blog post, right?
What I can share is the team growth I am proud of. We’ve welcomed 12 new employees to our team in 2016 so far, with the most significant increases in skills and personnel impacting our ASR team.

There have been some major changes to our sales team as well. We’ve hired an outstanding, experienced head of sales. This will allow our former head of sales to head our new professional services team.

And last but not least, we made a change to our C-level team. Petr Schwarz, our technology guru, CTO and CEO for a period of 5 years will now be exclusively focused on Phonexia’s advancements in technology.

His CEO role was offered to me, and I accepted. I am excited and honored to be assuming the role of CEO and I believe that together with our partners, we will bring Phonexia Speech Platform to help in thousands of various deployment scenarios.

A promising 2017 is ahead of us. Stay tuned for more exciting developments. Or, even better, join us.
