Our mission: to equip every company in the world with a voice assistant

Yelda in 1 minute

"We believe that in the next 3 years, the majority of B2C businesses around the world will need to equip themselves with a voice assistant to respond to their customers and allow human teams to focus on high-value tasks. Yelda is the operating system for these enterprise voice assistants."

Thomas Gx

CEO & Co-founder of Yelda

They talk about us

Our ambition is that every company in the world should be equipped with a voice assistant so that men and women can concentrate on their most important missions.

It all started in 2017, after Thomas, Antoine and Marie finished yet another custom-developed chatbot project. At that moment, we realize two things. On the one hand, there was no need to redevelop a custom chatbot for every customer, as most questions and conversations were very similar from one company to another.

On the other hand, voice was emerging as a new vector of communication between humans and machines, thanks to the democratization of machine learning, a tool that has considerably increased the performance and possibilities of voice.

Yelda was born from this observation, a SAAS platform for the creation of voice assistants for companies, with the objective of simplifying the creation of voice assistants to talk to customers, prospects or employees of a company. Thanks to the trust of large companies such as FNAC, Sodebo, Eiffage or BNP Paribas, Yelda designs and develops a tool of unprecedented simplicity and unmatched performance, which allows to deploy an assistant in a few minutes, whatever the industry or the vertical of the company.
