Lowering operational costs and improving return-on-investments (ROI) are top of mind for most enterprises with a contact center. Historically, accessing the wealth of customer interaction data resulting from customer interactions across the entire organization has been a challenge.
Data drives insights, and insights drive business. If your company has a contact center, it’s likely that standard KPIs like agent performance and call times are metrics being tracked. These KPIs help managers improve agent performance, customer experience, and operations costs. But for most enterprises, the data insights stop there.
Marketers and agencies are under constant pressure to prove ROI. But tracking your digital ads are difficult if you have no way to tell which ads drove calls and resulted in sales. Speech analytics allow marketers to connect the dots and follow the customer through the funnel in order to make smarter decisions about ad spending.
Speech Analytics tools can be used to evaluate all of the calls going in and out of a call center for important customer experience (CX) insights. If you’ve ever called a 1-800 number, you probably know how a great experience during that call can affect your opinion of the brand and whether you will continue doing business with them. Better CX is proven to be linked to overall profit, so modern organizations look for ways to track and optimize CX across the entire enterprise. Research shows that increasing customer retention by a mere 5% can result in a profit gain of 25%-95%!

The fiasco has cost the company millions in legal fees and something that no dollar amount can ever replace: their reputation.
