On 11th October 2023, two our team members, Jo and Pavel travelled up to Birmingham to attend Gamma’s annual partner conference, Gammaverse. This was an extraordinary tech convention that beckoned them to the heart of the tech universe. This wasn’t just any tech event; Gammaverse was a relationship where the lines between reality and the digital world blurred, and where dreams became real. The event’s opening speaker took the stage, Priya Lakhani, the Founder and CEO of CENTURY Tech, an AI-driven educational technology firm dedicated to crafting ground-breaking learning tools for educational institutions and employers worldwide. Priya recounted her entrepreneurial journey, highlighting her initial lack of interest in technology. However, she wisely identified a gap in the market, capitalising on AI’s potential to customise learning experiences, thus enhancing education and student performance. She emphasised her resilience, persisting despite numerous rejections.
The discussion shifted towards the vast potential of their VOIP product, Horizon, as the backend for Microsoft Voice connectivity, with less than 10% of teams’ licenses being voice-enabled. Gamma introduced their Gamma Elements portfolio, categorising existing products into subcategories like Gamma Enable, Gamma Connect, Gamma Experience, Gamma Secure, and Gamma Solutions. They showcased Horizon Contact’s vital role in healthcare, expediting patient-doctor communication with features like scheduling call-backs while in the queue.
The conversation gravitated towards the impending PSTN switch-off in 2025, underscoring the need for increased awareness among customers and businesses to facilitate the transition to VOIP. This transition presents a substantial opportunity for enhanced call routing with services like Horizon, eliminating the need for onsite PBX systems.
Modernisation’s significance was highlighted, with the agreement that innovation lacking practicality amounts to mere gadgets. Ant Morse projected the future of modernisation involving smart glasses, harnessing AI to offer on-the-go email summaries and local recommendations. These glasses may transform the field of view into a powerful marketing tool. During lunch, discussions with Dubber revealed their AI model’s remarkable ability to accurately identify complaints and harassment, distinguishing them from casual banter. The event concluded with Louis Theroux’s insightful remarks on relationship building during interviews, attributing it to humour and vulnerability. He stressed his preparation and clear narrative objectives for his interviews, with additional anecdotes from his experiences with various, interesting industry sectors.
