Voice Technologies announces graduate appointment

Voice Technologies has appointed David Kennedy to the role of Junior Software Developer. A graduate of the University of the West of Scotland, David recently completed his BSc (Hons) in Computer Games Development. His appointment via the ScotGrad Placement programme sees the company augment our 12-strong software development team in response to growth in demand for FormStream – our web-based e-forms app for paperless documentation.

David, who took up his position in May 2017, will be involved in developing new FormStream eforms as well as helping to integrate them with client systems.

David describes his appointment as the opportunity he was looking for: “I’d spoken to a few prospective employers but the position with Voice Technologies stood out. It was the one I wanted to secure because it offered me the chance to dive straight into live projects with the FormStream team. Coding skills such as JavaScript, and the importance of meticulous planning that I learned when completing web projects at University, are standing me in good stead already.

“The fact that Voice Technologies is an employee-owned company where everyone has a say and is rewarded for performing well appealed to me. Its Investors in People award and industry awards for innovation also made me keen to join the team. One of the first things that strikes you here is how genuinely customer-focused everyone is. Everything is geared to finding solutions to customers’ issues which makes the job challenging but satisfying too.”

James McPherson, CEO of Voice Technologies, commented: “We see inspiring and attracting the next generation of developers as a key responsibility here at Voice Technologies. We work closely with leading colleges and universities from across the country, offering opportunities to graduates.

“A highly talented graduate with considerable potential for the future, we’re delighted to announce David’s appointment. His attitude and mix of transferrable game development skills together with his web app experience made him the ideal candidate for the position.”

Voice Technologies employs over 30 people based in Paisley and Sheffield in the UK. We provide information and mobile workflow, speech recognition and digital dictation applications that help organisations to reduce the time and cost of producing correspondence.
