Customers today have a myriad of channels to choose from when contacting a company: email, chat, text, social media, etc. However, even with this "new" technology right at their fingertips, 90% of Americans prefer the traditional method of using the phone to conduct business with a company and 65% of businesses consider phone leads more valuable than leads from other channels. Because phone conversations remain vital, organizations must ensure that they are extracting all of the valuable data that exists within these conversations in order to truly capture the voice of their customers.
Basic call recording software is standard in a call center environment; however it is no longer adequate. Using basic call recording software means that calls must manually be monitored and in most organizations, it’s only a sampling of calls that are actually listened to. This means that the valuable insights hidden inside the calls that aren’t monitored aren’t extracted. Businesses must invest in a more robust technology that includes speech analytics in order to gain a full scope of the customer experience.
Each conversation with a customer, or potential customer, contains valuable data that is often missed. Speech analytics software can extract the unstructured, unmeasurable data contained in voice conversations. It gives structure to the data by categorizing calls by call content. Speech analytics mines hours of content in minutes, searching conversations for selected keywords inside calls. This quantitative and verifiable data can supplement, or even replace, more traditional (and expensive) market research methods. Statistical reports can be delivered on a daily basis, or even multiple times per day as needed.

Speech analytics software is currently used by a variety of companies across many industries. Cloud-based speech analytics software has allowed small to medium sized businesses to have access to this powerful software because it is much more affordable than an on premise solution and draws on few, if any, resources from the IT department.
Any company that hasn’t yet invested in a speech analytics solution should be looking to do so, and soon. The companies that have already implemented the technology are reaping the benefits, while the companies that continue to use only basic call recording software fall behind.
