about us

The Voice Data Experts

Founded over two decades ago, XOVOX remains the undisputed leader in voice and chat data format conversion, rescue, and preservation.

It takes the codebreaking (or, more accurately, codec-breaking) expertise of XOVOX to remove the technology barriers that prevent businesses like yours from finally putting your own data to use.
XOVOX's customers include Fortune 500 companies, financial services firms, insurance carriers, public safety organizations, and more. We also have partnerships worldwide with recorder companies, resellers, and integrators in North America, UK, EU, and Australia.
Our history

A Multidisciplinary Team

We’re XOVOX. Our mission is to reunite our clients with their audio data and unlock the immense value hidden within it. For over 20 years, XOVOX (formerly Electrical Science), has focused on recorded voice audio, finding elegant solutions to complex problems in a very well-defined, but business-critical space.

XOVOX is alone in offering a suite of unique audio services that many businesses need, but yet is so little-known that it does not even have a term to describe it. In effect, we created this space. Led by founder Andy Stevens, XOVOX has an international presence, having helped companies across six continents.
