Gridspace was formed as a collaboration between SRI Speech Labs, the lab behind Siri, and a multidisciplinary team of designers and engineers.

The company’s software makes it easy for contact centers and developers to quickly understand customer requests, synchronize agent responses and drive successful outcomes.

Legacy voice systems were not designed for modern speech services. Gridspace built novel speech processing system in house to enable low-latency speech analytics, live agent guidance and natural-sounding, interwoven voice bots.

Gridspace customers include Square, Bloomberg and USAA. The company has real-time integrations with Cisco, Avaya and Twilio, among others. Last year, the company scanned 20k+ concurrent calls on Cyber Monday for one client alone and is now handling billions of minutes per year.

Gridspace has been recognized by Gartner, HBR, NIPS and Forbes. The company is based in Los Angeles and San Francisco and backed by leading financial institutions and deep-tech investors.
