12 great reasons to deploy
speech analytics in your
contact centre

Cost savings and increased revenueIcon_Accordion PLUS BlueIcon_Accordion MINUS Blue

Cost-saving benefits are directly related to the appropriate use of speech analytics technologies. Successful or failed calls can easily be identified by analysing historical calls. This analysis provides organisations with powerful insights for developing and implementing refined, revenue-orientated customer engagement strategies and practices.

Increased first call resolutionIcon_Accordion PLUS BlueIcon_Accordion MINUS Blue

Providing fast, satisfactory solutions to customers’ problems or queries within their first call is a key contact centre performance requirement to maintain loyalty, spend and a positive service level.

Assessing agent behaviour and improving performanceIcon_Accordion PLUS BlueIcon_Accordion MINUS Blue

Speech analytics can easily identify unwanted agent behaviours, such as rushing or deliberately ending calls. Team leaders or supervisors can quickly and easily identify, assess and categorise calls with unacceptable agent behaviours, and intervene with appropriate coaching, training and other interventions.

Quality monitoring and optimisationIcon_Accordion PLUS BlueIcon_Accordion MINUS Blue

Speech analytics can automatically extract low-scoring calls, allowing QA and compliance teams to focus primarily on high-risk or poor-quality calls. The coverage of QA is significantly increased, compared to random selection.

Improvements in operational KPIsIcon_Accordion PLUS BlueIcon_Accordion MINUS Blue

By using speech analytics skilfully, the operations team can mine every call for valuable metadata. This adds to the context of many of the KPIs, and significantly enhances the quality of the business intelligence that the contact centre can utilise to drive its own performance and give substance to the organisation.

Improving contact centre cultureIcon_Accordion PLUS BlueIcon_Accordion MINUS Blue

Speech analytics can be used to remould contact centre culture and craft more efficient and effective processes and practices, preventing high staff turnover and poor customer satisfaction metrics.

Improved Average Handle TimeIcon_Accordion PLUS BlueIcon_Accordion MINUS Blue

AHT precisely indicates the amount of time an agent is works on an identifiable task. This data assists the ability to accurately plan for the capacity to meet or surpass customer service expectations, maintain the operation’s prescribed service level and to drive improved productivity.

Elements such as in-call and post-call silent time, script adherence and call process flows assist management in streamlining operations and reducing costly AHT.

Improved customer experienceIcon_Accordion PLUS BlueIcon_Accordion MINUS Blue

All calls in and out of the contact centre can be monitored and assessed; the technologies can identify keywords, phrases and even the acoustic qualities of the conversation. The identified calls can be used to guide the agent to use alternative wording, tone or style or to introduce alternative scripts. These tactics can be used to recover the relationship and deliver a significantly improved customer experience.

Compliance and risk issuesIcon_Accordion PLUS BlueIcon_Accordion MINUS Blue

Speech analytics provides a cost-effective way to provide managers with appropriate insights on 100% of all calls to ensure that agents perform according to the requirements relating to compliance statements.

Fast return on investmentIcon_Accordion PLUS BlueIcon_Accordion MINUS Blue

With speech analytics solutions, a surprisingly fast return on investment is possible. How speech analytics will directly and measurably benefit individual organisations will naturally vary from one operation to another operation and will essentially be driven by how cost-saving and revenue-generation strategies and tactics are deployed.

Increasing and improving market and business intelligenceIcon_Accordion PLUS BlueIcon_Accordion MINUS Blue

Speech analytics is today’s well-proven method of rapidly obtaining both quantifiable and vastly less costly data than conventional market research, ensuring the organisation remains agile to respond to changing market conditions and the competitive landscape.

Streamlining business processesIcon_Accordion PLUS BlueIcon_Accordion MINUS Blue
To ensure optimum operational performance whilst delivering the best possible customer experience, business processes should be clearly defined, exceptionally well-documented, regularly reviewed and re-engineered to ensure optimum operational performance while delivering the best possible customer experience.

Speech analytics provides practical and usable insights to facilitate process re-engineering.
