Gain basic insight into voice interactions using speech analytics

What's the challenge?

Organizations that record all or a portion of their calls amass a significant amount of data in those recordings. The difficulty lies in sifting through thousands of hours of dialog to find what's most important - a task that's impossible without automation.

What's the solution?

It starts by automating the transcription of your calls. From there, you can discover trends such as frequency and changes in frequency of words and phrases. Use the search function if you're looking for something specific.

Use Case Overview

Story and Business Context

Organizations want to improve business performance, using the valuable information that is contained in recordings of interactions between customers and agents. It is impossible to mine even a small amount of the information contained in these recordings through manual sampling or listening.

Interaction Analytics provides organizations with the ability to mine the content of recordings for specific phrases that indicate the occurrence of key events relating to customer experience, agent performance, sales, and compliance.

This base use case introduces the Interaction Analytics technology and use of the speech-to-text engine to transcribe the content of voice interactions, search for key words and phrases, and automatically detect changes in the frequency of the occurrence of words and phrases over time and across interactions.

General Assumptions

Assumptions for PureConnect customers running Genesys Speech Analytics

PureConnect Platform Assumptions:

Minor additional work is required to integrate 3rd-party recording and this is catered for in the use case. This has no practical impact on the performance of the system or the user experience.

Interactions must be unencrypted or, if encrypted, then provided in a form and with appropriate keys to enable decryption by Genesys.

The preferred format for recordings is WAV PCM (uncompressed). Preferred format for metadata associated with recordings is XML files with one XML file per recording.

When deployed with PureConnect, recordings are fed to Interaction Analytics via the "UConnector for PureConnect" which is a custom Professional Services asset.

The prerequisites for this use case on PureConnect are Genesys Voice Recording (EE07) and Genesys Voice and Screen Recording (EE08)

UConnector for PureConnect is required to utilize Genesys Intelligence Analytics on PureConnect
