Evvnt will be piloting event discovery through voice technology with SpokenLayer, based out of New York. Delivering event suggestions alongside news via popular smart-home technologies like Amazon Alexa and Google Home, the two companies are designing a solution for major news publishers that helps keep media consumption on the forefront of technology.
Richard Green commented “Watching my daughters instinctively engage in voice search to get web based results really highlighted the simplicity and direction for future generations to access local news content and SpokenLayer are well placed to ensure we surface local events data.”
Transferring local events from online calendars to voice search is an obvious step for world looking to the internet for faster and easier methods of information. As voice search and information deliver becomes more common from entertainment and daily devices voice search and AI information delivery will form a large part of a persons daily local information consumption.
Jeremy Mims, Head of Strategy and Partnerships at SpokenLayer: “SpokenLayer powers voice experiences for leading media companies like Gannett, McClatchy, Hearst, Univision, Oath, Time, Medium, Politico and many more. We know that local events are an important piece of what users want on Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant/Home, and Apple’s Siri. We’re excited to work with Evvnt as a valuable resource for local events content on the SpokenLayer platform.”
Evvnt is currently piloting voice search with three newspapers, Metro US, Bakersfield and also Blank Slate Media and here is how this product fits in to the outreach marketing to generate a best in class service for local businesses and sales teams.
