What is speech analytics? And how can this be valuable to my business? These are common questions - so let’s explore them and try to bring some clarity.

Exploring the advantages of how call performance is improved through analytics.
1. Improved Customer Experience
Call centres and sales teams have been at the forefront of speech analytic technology adoption for many years due to the benefit of improving call quality, customer experience and overall call conversions. By allowing your customer services and sales teams to mine and analyse audio data, they can detect emotion, tone and stress in a customer’s voice. Managers can streamline their management processes and call effectiveness as they can quickly identify each calling customer’s needs, wants and expectations.
2. Increased Sales Call Conversions & Cost Savings
Greater sales conversion rate and reduction in call centre service delivery time have been identified as key benefits to analytics. The introduction of speech analytics often provides a welcome reduction in cost of unnecessary callbacks after improving first-call resolution rates. Call centres can be more efficient through the avoidance of live calls that can be handled by effective IVR or website self-service systems. The savings can be endless with the reduced cost of quality assurance and monitoring and often lower cost per calls due to the faster efficient call handle times and fewer transfers.
3. Faster Communication & Motivated Team
Quicker feedback can often make teams improve their customer and sales performance through faster iterative learnings. By analysing which conversations lead to more sales, sales managers can focus on the best performing and most effective patterns to close sales and develop a training program to mentor other team members. More sales make a happier, more highly motivated team
