“Voice commerce will be the biggest thing to simplify the customer’s purchase process, not least because of the major changes we’re experiencing in the mobile world.”- CTO of REWE Group, Dr Robert Zores

We must have all heard of e-commerce but have you heard of Voice Commerce?! As evident from the name, Voice commerce is an artificial intelligence-based technology that allows you to shop using only your voice and a smart device such as a smartphone or smart speaker. Oh does that mean it is the same as what Siri and Alexa do? No

In this case, Siri and Alexa don’t have the required intelligence. It is because only the company knows what the customer wants, what their preferences are, their purchase history, and they will not be required to ask the same questions every time.
