"As a company that delivers customer experience solutions, Avtex has seen the rise of fraud and resulting drop in operating efficiencies in the contact center. To secure privileged customer account access, companies have increased the scrutiny level of their callers, which often adds friction to the customer experience," said Alfredo Rizzo, VP, Solution Architects and Evangelists, Avtex. "Our partnership with TRUSTID has allowed us to provide contact center agents and fraud analysts with actionable information for self-service applications at the point of answer in the contact center, resulting in a more expedited and effective authentication process for the customer and the company."
"If criminals – armed with stolen personally identifying information – can pass through an organization’s caller authentication system, exploiting the call center agent to accomplish an account takeover is not difficult," said Pat Cox, vice president of Neustar and general manager of TRUSTID. "Together with the world-class customer experience and fraud prevention solution offered by Avtex, we are helping create the immediate trust needed to start member interactions with ‘How may I help you?’ instead of ‘Who are you and why should I trust you?’"
