MODERATOR: Keith Dawson, Practice Leader, Customer Engagement - Ovum

Learn how two different companies have benefited from using speech analytics. Aetna has revised customer agent training to turn negative interactions into positive experiences. Managers in the Garanati Pension call center are able to access details of conversations between customers and call center personnel without listening to individual conversations and can take action immediately to improve poor agent performance and business operations.

Analytics is transitioning from an emerging technology to an applied business solution. In this session, a major
healthcare provider details how it successfully implemented a speech analytics solution to help identify what drives repeat calls and longer call durations, resulting in significant business benefits.

B205 – Case Study 2: Voice Verification
4:15 p.m - 5:00 p.m
MODERATOR: Judith Markowitz, President - J. Markowitz Consultants

Prior to deployment of a biometric speaker verification system that is lan- guage- and accent-independent, a large volume of calls required identity verification via a manual agent-assisted procedure. This was causing both time loss and customer dissatisfaction. After deployment, the average call duration was reduced and customers provided positive feedback. Rather than dealing with PINs, passwords, and challenge questions, customers are easily identified by the system before completing their secure transactions.
