Otter.ai Receives a Perfect Score of “10” for Entrepreneurial Innovation

Los Altos, CA  - October 8, 2019 - Otter.ai announced today that Frost and Sullivan has named it Entrepreneurial Company of the Year for Real-Time Meeting Assistance Services. The award was based on innovation leadership and customer impact, market disruption, competitive differentiation and price/performance of the company’s Otter Voice Meeting Notes, an AI-powered live transcription and collaboration app.

“A new breed of artificial intelligence (AI) powered voice transcription meeting assistant services are emerging with the mission of solving speech chaos within enterprise meetings by making voice transcription easily searchable, shareable, accessible and actionable,” said Alaa Saayed, ICT Industry Director & Fellow - Connected Work. “In the field of artificial intelligence applied to speech recognition, most of the technological advancements within the past decade have been centered on the market of intelligent voice assistants for human-to-machine interactions (i.e., Apple Siri, Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant). While IT giants such as Amazon, Baidu, Google, and IBM Watson have been researching and developing services based on AI-powered voice transcription, each one of them still offers its own set of limitations. Startup Otter.ai has become a market disruptor in the field of AI-powered real-time transcription service market.”

The Frost and Sullivan Decision Support Scorecard considers Entrepreneurial Innovation and Customer Impact. The overarching categories for all benchmarking criteria and the definitions for each criterion are provided in the full report.
