The evolution of the traditional call centre into an omnichannel contact centre has allowed companies to view the function less as a cost drive operation.
Organisations that successfully capture, extract, analyse, and act on contact centre voice data are able to better determine why their customers call, can develop insights into how they can provide a better experience for both their customers and employees and have the ability to measure the level of customer satisfaction from eachr and more as an opportunity to provide strategic, experience-oriented customer care. With customers engaged via SMS, websites, chats, and social media, identifying customers’ reasons for initiating contact has become a core analytics use case for virtually any contact-centre interaction.
Improving contact-centre performance can be a source of frustration for many organisations because of the roadblocks to extracting and understanding voice data.
The common challenges we hear from organisations starting their customer experience transformation journey are system interoperability, connectivity, and security issues.
The underlying voice technology stack comprising; carriers, network management, voice infrastructure, and contact-centre systems -- especially on-premise, isn’t compatible with speech analytics technology. Speech analytics technology needs call meta-data and stereo call recording to transcribe and process the voice stream accurately.
The complexity of connecting speech analytics to multiple calling technologies like; unified communications, contact centre, corporate telephony and even now CRMs to provide a 360 view of the customer is expensive and, in many cases, technically impossible.
To ensure business continuity and competitiveness, organisations need carrier and technology provider independence, empowering them with the flexibility and resilience of multi-carrier and agility to connect speech analytics wherever it is needed.
In contact centres particularly, security is focused on the need to maintain PCI DSS compliance at the highest level while being capable to mine conversational data.
