San Francisco, C.A.: The Google-backed AI English speaking coach, ELSA, has today announced they will be partnering with global tech leaders who share a combined revenue of over $27 billion to provide English language training for engineers and IT professionals.
The global IT professional services market was valued at over $777 Billion in 2021 and is expected to increase by a growth rate of 11% by 2030. In this expanding ecosphere, an IT professional’s ability to communicate fluently with clients and colleagues in different geographies catalyzes a higher project win rate, increased productivity and enhanced efficiency.
Strong communication skills in English enable IT companies to secure more deals and work efficiently across borders, stimulating international growth. With its industry-specific situations, the personalized ELSA app offers scalable and easy-to-integrate simulated training solutions, allowing users to learn against a backdrop of their specific sector’s context. IT companies that practice effective communication can receive 47% higher returns over five years.
ELSA provides an end-to-end solution for IT firms and is a pivotal tool to constantly assess and improve their employees’ English proficiency and communication skills in the flow of work.
Traditional English assessments can be inaccurate when employees are in the high-pressure environment of work, especially when it comes to interactive, on the spot discussions with clients. Furthermore, assessment results become stale quickly, and provide little feedback to enable employee self-improvement.
ELSA Speech Analyzer uses AI to analyze employees’ speech in live conversations at work, providing them with immediate feedback and a detailed analysis. This is a game changer for IT professionals looking to build relationships with international clients.
Through the ELSA platform, employers can roll out a comprehensive internal language training program on a mass scale, improving communication skills crucial in securing business deals and
improving customer service among IT professionals.
Vu Van, founder and CEO of ELSA, comments on the need for language training within the IT sector: ‘In order for businesses to keep up the pace in a sector which knows no limits, it is essential for IT employees to speak English, the global language of business, to a high level.’
‘By joining our repertoire of over 400 clients, companies can ensure their employees expand their potential across borders, through harnessing coherent communication skills and maximizing efficiency.’
