At Emmersion, we are all about the data backing our solution. Our mission is to close the global communication gap. One of the main methods we accomplish this is by providing actionable data to our clients.
SILICON SLOPES, UT (LEHI, UT) – Emmersion, the leader in automated language assessments, announced last week that it has closed an early-stage, $5.5 million round of funding. The round was led by Sepio Capital with participation from Next Frontier Capital, Jeremy Andrus, and Tamarak.
The team I’m part of recently did the first of a series of training sessions that focus on Emmersion fundamentals—key features and processes that help anyone better understand the important work we do. If you have been a regular reader, you will hopefully recognize some overlap between what is discussed here and what we have discussed earlier.
I am on the plane home from a huge personal accomplishment. I am returning to the US having just visited Egypt and my 7th continent of the world (yes, that includes Antarctica). While I have visited some of the most amazing parts of the world, I know I still have much to see. Through my travels, I have enjoyed some of the most impressive natural wonders, man made structures, and passionate individuals.
When I consider an enterprise software solution, I like to match up the features from each consideration. Sometimes I learn about important features that weren’t originally in my consideration set. Once I have a solid understanding of what I am looking for, I proceed to evaluate firms with the options that I need and eliminate firms that are not capable of delivering on my needs.
One of our core Emmersion culture values is to be a Truth Seeker. In practice, truth seeking relates to our desire to be thorough and rigorous in the development of products that work. It also manifests itself in how we talk about why we do what we do.
Many contact centers are in a constant state of turnover and hiring. Either as a result of growth and success or poor recruiting for call centers and other outsourced positions and jobs. High turnover or high growth can put a significant strain on the organization.
This week’s post will be a little self indulgent. I hate the “sorry not sorry” card but I’m going to play it anyway. The Emmersion team crossed an important milestone a couple weeks ago as we leveled up our automated English speaking assessment, and it became the FIRST-ever, fully adaptive automated speaking assessment. It has been a great privilege to work with the brilliant minds that have made this vision a reality, and it is a credit to the persistence of the visionary who carried the seeds, tilled the soil, and nurtured it to fruition. You can hear from the brains behind it all, Dr. Jacob Burdis, here.
