To assist companies in their ongoing quest to deliver the very best automated customer experience possible, GM Voices partnered with EIG (Enterprise Integration Group) to present “The Changing Telephone Channel: Optimizing IVR + Speech Recognition in an Age of Smartphones” on December 2-3 at the Crowne Plaza Atlanta Perimeter. This two-day event was a deep dive into the challenging world of IVR, including comprehensive sessions on call flows, usability, Voice Branding, error recovery and much more. All in all, the event was a success, and GM Voices and EIG are in talks to continue the workshops in 2015!

Talent Spotlight: Brice

A Friendly, Natural Sound for Any Voice Project

When it comes to choosing a voice talent, we don’t let just anyone join our roster. Our strict selection process has enabled us to build a roster of reputable voice actors our clients trust and enjoy working with week in and week out. With over 900 total performers, it can be difficult to narrow down your selection, but we think Brice, a US English talent who now records with GM Voices every Wednesday, has a fresh, confident and “real” sound that works great for any type of voice application.

“Hi, Brice here! I’ve been a voice actor since 2001 and on the GM Voices talent roster since 2008. I’m grateful for the opportunity to make a living by slapping on headphones, stepping into sound booths and speaking in silly, professional, strange, or somber voices, depending on the client’s preference. GM Voices keeps me energized every week by offering me a wide range of voice projects and letting me work with some of the kindest, brightest, funniest people in the business.”

Movember ‘Stache Bash 2014

Furry Face Battles for Men’s Health

The moustache population multiplied exponentially at GM Voices (and all over the world) last month. Movember, a cause GM Voices has supported for four years, is all about raising awareness for men’s health. And honestly, what’s manlier than flaunting your ability to grow a moustache?

This year, the creative team at GM Voices stepped out of the box, creating ‘Stache Bash, an intense competition that got a little hairy. Throughout the month formerly known as November, we released several videos where two burly brawlers battled with moustache-born bravado. The winner of each round was based on the person who received the most votes from viewers.

If you haven’t had a chance to watch the videos, well, there’s no excuse for that. But you can relive the complete competition with our playlist in this handy newsletter.
