One of the charters of the Oracle
Applications User Experience team is to explore emerging technology and
possible enterprise use cases and quickly turn that into product. Oracle
Voice, for sales reps who use the Oracle Sales Cloud, is a great
example of that.
In October 2013, the UX team tested a
prototype of Oracle Voice on Oracle sales reps at Oracle OpenWorld in
San Francisco and gathered feedback to build a solid product. It became
available to you and your customers on iTunes in June 2014.
Oracle Voice allows sales reps to
efficiently retrieve and capture sales information before and after
meetings. Research shows that we tend to forget what we just learned if
we don’t write it down within 20 minutes. With Oracle Voice, sales reps
using Oracle Sales Cloud can capture key account information by speaking
rather than typing.
Get up to speed on Oracle Voice so you
can talk to your customers about it. It’s important that they hear about
our innovations and our nimble development from you.

Oracle Voice is just the beginning of the dramatic technologies coming from the Oracle AppsLab. We’re exploring wearables,
augmented reality, beacons, and much more—and building applications
that enhance the user experience of Oracle Applications using these
