We Develop for Engagement
We develop customized voice experiences tailored to the user, brands and the community. We’ve spent 20+ years embedded in mobile UX and development, and now bring that experience to a Voice First world. We understand the technical constraints of todays emerging voice technology, and how to scale for future capabilities. Since late 2014, we’ve trained thousands on voice assistant use, lived within user scenarios, are steeped in user experience, and have designed, prototyped and published multiple voice experiences. From design and development to publishing and analytics, Marvee is your partner in Voice.

Silver Users - Testing
We Test With Real Users
Want to delight older users with Voice? The key is to put them first. We offer testing services for developers and designers to assist in ensuring Alexa Skills engage and delight an older audience. Over the past four years, we’ve grown a large and powerful pool of older adults ranging in age from fifty to ninety-eight. We call them our “Silver Users”. We’ve crafted our testing process to meet the unique voice-first needs of older adults and customize test groups by expertise (voice newbies to power users), and/or age (boomer, silent and greatest generations). We are proud to have established a gig economy of sorts for these older adults, as well as benefitting from their user perspective. There is nothing more important than interacting with real-life end users. Leverage our expertise, schedule a test group, and receive a Silver User report.
We Offer End User Training
Need help getting your user audience started with Voice Technology and establishing repetitive use? We’ve held “How To Use Alexa” end-user trainings with over 15,000 older adults, families and caregivers. We have an established training process that results in fast adoption and regular user interaction. We also train the trainer. Ask about our training workshops.
