Some great news today as Tellme Networks has officially joined the Microsoft family. On May 3rd, Microsoft announced that it has completed its acquisition of Tellme, the Mountain View, Calif.-based provider of voice services for everyday life, including nationwide directory assistance, enterprise customer service and voice-enabled mobile search.
Tellme will operate as a wholly owned subsidiary of Microsoft from its Mountain View, Calif., offices. Tellme CEO, Mike McCue, is remaining Tellme’s senior leader. He and the amazing group of talented and creative employees will be joining the Microsoft Business Division.
As we announced in March, Tellme and Microsoft share a common vision around the limitless potential of voice as a way to find information, connect with people and enhance business processes, any time and from any device. We are already working closely with our customers and partners to make this vision a reality across many complementary areas including natural interfaces, unified communications and mobile search.
Stay tuned for more information in the coming months.
