Introducing Alvaria Horizons, an innovation lab

Welcome to Alvaria Horizons, a lab dedicated to pioneering new ideas and building innovative technologies. We launched this space to bring new ideas and products to the continuously shifting workplace landscape, taking an even deeper dive into new ways to build a brighter future of work.
History of Modern Innovation

The concept of innovation labs has become a cornerstone in both the corporate and academic worlds. Lockheed Martin's Skunk Works, established during World War II, is often cited as the original innovation lab, setting the blueprint for future organizations. Since then, Skunk Works has become synonymous with secretive, fast-paced, and breakthrough innovation in aerospace. Today, innovation labs embedded in many of the world's most well-known and reputable companies continue to evolve with a focus on artificial intelligence, machine learning, blockchain, and other emerging technologies, with the COVID pandemic accelerating digital transformation.

Leading with Legacy

Alvaria emerged from the combination of two influential technology companies—Aspect Software and Noble Systems. Our legacy of innovation and excellence make us a trusted partner for leaders across all industries, from commercial banks to airlines and beyond. With over 100 registered patents and over 1,000 companies using our products, it’s in our DNA and our legacy to go beyond the surface and create solutions that make a difference. We’re inspired by early innovations our own team lead–when Aspect founded the modern-day inbound contact center with launch of the Galaxy, the first intelligent ACD in 1973—and now, 50 years later, we’re doubling down on the future, with Alvaria Horizons.

“I am honored and excited to announce the launch of Alvaria Horizons; a space, team, and mindset dedicated to pursuing the unimaginable, unrealistic, and undefined and rapidly bringing the best ideas that redefine the future of work to reality. A brighter workforce experience is on the horizon.”

– Darryl Kelly, Chief Strategy Office
