This integration moves voice orders directly to the Olo platform, which seamlessly integrates with a restaurant’s operations.
SoundHound noted that by joining Olo’s partner programme, Olo Connect, more restaurants will be able to process voice orders from customers at drive-throughs, in-store kiosks, or over the phone accurately using AI.
Its voice AI system, which understands natural human speech, can learn any restaurant’s menu.
It can process orders, answer customer queries and even upsell add-ons and special offers.
SoundHound co-founder and chief product officer James Hom said: “It’s becoming clear that soon every business will have a customer service voice assistant and we’re delighted to join Olo Connect to provide its entire restaurant network with access to SoundHound’s powerful voice AI.
