Speech analytics in the call centre. In a large call centre, thousands of hours of speech are recorded each day. That speech is a potential treasure trove of information on topics such as the following:
Are operators complying with the legal and other requirements of their respective tasks?Are there identifiable operator behaviours that correlate with successful call outcomes?Are customers raising common issues that are not known within the rest of the business?
In many call centres such issues are partially addressed by quality-control staff who listen to a small sample of the recorded calls. However, such QC is both expensive and limited in scope, since it is difficult for each QC auditor to keep track of the statistics of subtle patterns that occur in highly variable telephone conversations.
We therefore offer speech-recognition based speech analytics, that is optimized for the dialogues that occur in a particular call centre. This solution, which can be cloud-based or deployed on-premise, is surprisingly cost effective and can discover patterns in both customer and operator speech turns that have significant business impact.
Monitoring web-based and broadcast media
Podcasts, radio and TV broadcasts, user-generated content in social media … there is a massive universe of spoken content that is available to the public but hard to utilize for business purposes. However, by tailoring a speech-recognition platform to transcribe such content, it is possible to develop insights into public perceptions and media coverage on a large scale.
Our ability to monitor spoken media content in a variety of languages is useful for purposes such as verifying advertisement transmissions, analyzing editorial content and understanding social trends.
