about us

At Gyst Technologies, we develop advanced personalization software for voice based self-service systems. These systems can be traditional call center IVRs, voice-enabled virtual assistants, or any device that uses voice as a means of user communication. We have reduced enterprise costs and improved the customer experience on hundreds of millions of user interactions to date.

The Gyst Team has created a new technology that delivers advanced improvements in the Customer Experience (CX) for voice applications. We realized several years ago that measuring caller skills and performance at navigating through a given voice application could be used to enhance and personalize the experience in real time. As a result of this early work, we built and tested several software models that proved this theory in production. We also received a patent on the process and have since filed several additional patents covering improvements to date. With Gyst, we have taken the lessons learned from the original technology we developed, and created a new cloud-based version of the service that will deliver the best CX in the industry.

Gyst also received an award under Enterprise Ireland's High Potential Start Up program to bring the technology to EMEA using Ireland as a base of operations. To that end, Gyst Technologies was formed as a new Limited Company, registered in Dublin. The goal of this company is to leverage the benefits of our field-proven technology in these additional markets.

Our dedicated team include some of the best in the business.
