How to improve the customer experience in a context of budget cuts? In this blog, we will explain why using a Speech Analytics solution can deliver significant benefits to contact centers.
Speech Analytics solutions for contact centers have never been more relevant and efficient than they are today. They enable you to explore, analyze, and monitor a vast number of interactions in order to improve the quality of the customer experience that is delivered and the effectiveness of customer service.
Even though we have entered the age of automation and digital technology, a great number of customers still prefer interacting with a human agent to other means of contacting companies. The telephone channel thus remains the richest medium, where customers feel they can share all their pain points (related to products, services, customer journeys, etc.).
With a well-thought Speech Analytics solution, companies can identify these pain points and take action to improve their products and services, customer journeys, or the way agents handle customer requests.

To do this, the root causes of customer dissatisfaction must be sought in order to determine whether the company could remedy it.
A good Speech Analytics solution will often bring to light problems in customer case processing such as:
This ability to look at the customer journey as a whole, through the prism of customer experience, is also an opportunity for the Customer Relationship Center (CRC) to assert itself not as a cost center, but as a partner to other departments in the company.
A well-designed Speech Analytics solution can also measure customer perceived reiteration across all channels, not just the phone channel, identify the most correlated customer requests, and investigate the causes.
As a result of these measures, analysis can be carried out on:

Finally, a strong Speech Analytics solution allows users to look at calls through the prism of a wide range of indicators. This not only ensures more efficient call handling, but also reduces:
