The old-school or, as we like to think of it them “Classic” IVRs, may seem light years away from the talking cars and robot vacuums that people have come to expect, but extending an old IVR, with new capabilities, doesn’t require an expensive rewrite or increase in complexity. In the following pages we examine the case for migrating automated service IVRs using an interpreter. Interpreters, sometimes known as translators may be a good way of thinking of how they interact with IVRs. Interpreters emulate the hardware of another machine and perform instructions as if they were that machine.

There is a little-known history of very fast interpreters in the early days of computing. These interpreters were known for their
flexibility and the ability to write portable code. We draw on both for our systems.  For more information please download now and also make sure to catch Jack's Insights in the Winter issue of Speech Technology magazine.

It’s that time again in your contact center. Time for performance reviews.  Almost everyone on the team is going above and beyond, optimizing their workflows, attending to the needs of the customer and creating more opportunities every step of the way. Almost everyone.  Almost.

There’s always one, isn’t there? There’s a member of the team who, time and time again, comes in below expectations.  Every step of the way there’s a problem, some issue, an inability to get done what needs to get done – and it drags down the productivity of the entire team.  Seemingly, there is a simple fix:  removing the source of the problem.  In this case, however, the problem isn’t a person, the problem is your contact center agents’ After Call Work (ACW).

Harnessing the Power of Speech Analytics in the Contact Center
