Contact Center Speech Analytics
Unparalleled Value Through Speech Analytics
The Northridge Group’s State of Customer Experience 2023 research report reveals a surge in preference for online agent chat versus phone amongst 18-35-year-olds—the first time online chat has eclipsed phone!
Behavioral, speech and text analytics solutions have dramatically transformed quality management programs and are critical tools for taking Contact Center monitoring standards to the next level.
Together, they have great potential to quickly and seamlessly identify major pain points, drivers of effort, challenges faced when contacting customer service and other Customer Experience issues. Our approach begins with taking the data in at a glance and prioritizing deeper analyses that allows the data to become more detailed and curated to glean the most insights.
How We Provide Value
Our state-of-the-art behavioral and speech analytics solutions have the power to ingest and analyze large volumes of data through an omni-channel lens to identify, quantify and prioritize the macro-level issues that impact Customer Experience and operational efficiency. Our capability extends to transcribing calls and integrating other data sources like chat, email and customer and product information to unleash powerful insights that can be mined in multiple ways. Once the problem areas have been identified, we use human-assisted monitoring to listen to a statistically valid sampling of calls to gather more information regarding specific drivers of issues, root causes and interdependencies.
With this deep understanding of the problem, impact and root causes, our quality team is well-positioned to share potential solutions and recommendations with our clients’ Contact Center and business leadership teams. Utilizing a closed-loop communication process, our quality team can also go back to listen to a sampling of those targeted call types or processes after the improvements have been made to confirm that specific improvements and benefits have been realized.
Speech Analytics & Human Listening
To fully leverage the value created by behavioral and speech analytics tools, Northridge uses them in tandem with our human-assisted quality monitoring programs.
This combined approach allows us to identify customer pain points, drivers of repeat calls and opportunities to resolve issues in each customer’s channel of choice, achieving improved Customer Experience and a dramatic reduction in operational costs.
