How it works

Voice assistant is a framework that allows performing all the application operations by voice commands. The voice assistant is installed into an existing application.

Voice assistant:

– recognizes speech;
– helps to perform operations in the application;
– can keep small talk.

The responses are voiced and all dialogs are additionally displayed in the application as text.

The voice assistant makes a journey to the desired action shorter. The user needs only to say what to do, and the assistant performs the task.

Art Director, Lunifera
We’ve been working on a project with Umbrella IT for 6 months. Our goal was to analyse our website, tune it up on both Desktop and Mobile versions. We needed to improve loading speed, update our UX and UI also eliminate major bugs which were caused due to originally bad coding. As a result, we’ve succeeded to improve loading on Desktop for up to 60% and Mobile around 40. We finally left certain bugs in the past and our customers got better experience using the site. Our manager at Umbrella It helped us to find most suitable solutions and organised the whole work flow. Their summary and report system is excellent. Highly recommend Umbrella Team!
