We have published a new whitepaper with the title "How speech recognition can help grow ecommerce sales".
Grocery ecommerce is still in its infancy despite its fast growth in the past years. The share of shoppers who choose online channels when buying groceries is miniscule compared to the share of online shoppers say, in travel industry. We argue that this is due to bad user experience especially in the first shopping cart creation. Using voice in grocery ecommerce could make the shopping experience faster and more convenient and increase the amount of sales.
