One of the top 5 wireless and satellite providers in the world wanted to ensure the security of customer data and establish a better PCI Compliance system. With VoiceBase PCI Redaction, they saw major improvements and were able to remove the weaknesses that existed in the previous system.
Validating campaign effectiveness is a challenge for any business.

How are voice and text analytics used?
Voice analytics technology allows organizations to transform unstructured data from conversations customer interactions into rich, useful structured data for valuable insights.
Historically, speech and voice analytics has been utilized within the contact center space to manage agent performance, and get some baseline KPIs about customer experience and operations.
As customer experience (CX) is a growing differentiator, many enterprises are investing further in CX programs often incorporating Natural Language Processing (NLP) technologies like Speech and Voice Analytics. Furthermore, voice analytics has started to be leveraged by departments outside the call center.
Enterprise organizations seeking a competitive edge have begun tapping into voice analytics as a new source of ROI, CX optimization, and operational insight.
For example, one national health benefits provider discovered that a large percentage of their callers (many over 50 years old) were having trouble finding the “make appointment” button on the website. By analyzing all of their call center calls, they were able to surface this trend quickly and take action to adjust their website and saw an increase in appointment bookings and decrease in call center operations.
The value of voice analytics can extend beyond the contact center to every department to drive growth and ROI.
Contact Center Compliance and QA
Script adherance, required disclosures, fraud risk, and more can all be tracked, scored, and analyzed automatically at scale for managers and executives to see exactly how their departments are performing, and zoom in to individual reps in case coaching is required.
One VoiceBase customer discovered that a significant number of their sales reps were not reading the required disclosures during a sale, meaning that sale was invalid. By using VoiceBase intelligence to find these agents and coach them, they were able to increase valid monthly sales significantly.
Workforce Management for Call Centers
Workforce management and optimization is a common use case for voice analytics. With VoiceBase, call center managers can easily understand agent performance, coaching and training gaps, and be alerted to issues immediately to take proper action.
How Does Voice Analytics Work?
Voice analytics is the use of a voice recognition tool to analyze and record a spoken conversation. Modern voice analytics software can translate recorded audio conversations (such as call center calls) into structured, searchable data. Furthermore, voice analytics tools like VoiceBase can identify emotion, intent, common topics, and more by interpreting audio patterns in human conversation.
There are mainly two methods to building speech recognition software; phonetic based and text based/fixed vocabulary speech engines. Phonetic based speech engines are built with a smaller grammar set and use phonemes as the basis for recognition and search, while fixed vocabulary engines are built with a larger, fixed, predefined vocabulary.
