Call recording is certainly not a new concept. It’s been around in traditional Call Centers for decades. But what has historically been a coaching and customer service tool is getting a new look from businesses everywhere since employees are now predominantly out of the office and compliance standards have not been relaxed.
Call recording is an outstanding way to unlock key findings from voice data on how, what, when, and where people communicate. This is an increasingly important activity, providing insights into everything from customer satisfaction to employee job performance. And now that we can’t offer our developing teammates “over the shoulder” guidance and training, it’s taken on new meaning in every area of the business – not just the contact center.
Evolve IP has partnered with Dubber, creator of the world’s number one unified call recording and voice AI solution. If you are investigating new and improved call recording solutions to ensure compliance or improve service performance, read on to learn what new technologies are available, and how you can implement them to enhance visibility and accelerate success.
Turning Voice Data into Voice Intelligence
Most companies have collected voice data for years. But this raw, unstructured data has been virtually impossible to put to any good use. Enter artificial intelligence (AI). As voice AI has become more sophisticated, it makes it possible to use content from spoken words to identify patterns, alert to issues, and effectively manage operations. Far beyond transcriptions, voice AI takes audio files from call recording and organizes them, spotting in moments what would take humans hours, delivering meaningful and usable intelligence for businesses of all kinds.
As part of Evolve IP’s award-winning unified communications platform, Dubber can collect and process voice, video, chat, and more, making it possible for enterprises, governments, and service providers to finally benefit from billions of minutes of captured conversations.
This critical content is no longer opaque, and it doesn’t take hours of manual effort to get to the good stuff. The Dubber Voice Intelligence Cloud turns on the moment a call starts, making each connection and conversation an instantly integrated data set that can also plug into customer relationship management and project management tools.
Call Recording: Then & Now
Gartner published a compelling report of strategic predictions for 2021, which included an assessment of the state of call recording:
- By the year 2025, 75% of conversations will be recorded
- 50% of customer conversations in financial institutions happen outside of a call center
- 80% of crucial customer interactions are voice, augmented with digital
- Fewer than 10% of crucial conversations are captured
Even when crucial conversations are captured, it is typically in ways that make it difficult to get to the moments that matter.
New technology uncovers the potential insights contained in every conversation. For instance, for customer service calls, traditional call recording would provide an audio file of the recorded conversation. If the information needed to be verified, or employee performance checked, leadership would have to sit and listen to that call. Imagine trying to assess performance or interactions over several hours of calls. It was a literal real-time exercise that sapped resources, and, quite honestly, no one enjoyed doing.
The beauty of AI is that it can replace these manual, repetitive, and time-intensive tasks, freeing up creative humans to do more with data. In terms of voice AI, the latest call recording technologies are doing just that —making it possible to not have to “sit and listen,” but rather, have the system do the legwork, extrapolating the points that matter and aggregating data to deliver meaningful information.
AI-enriched conversational data is a cloud-based service that makes it possible to forego the complex, inefficient processes of dealing with voice data. Once it is “on and active,” systems like Dubber make it easy to see the high points of a conversation, quickly pulling out any patterns or anomalies. This always-on functionality makes it easy to have one endpoint for unified call recording, activate real-time search, and connect in smarter ways, using voice APIs and automations.
Call recording can capture any and every type of conversation:
- Desk calls
- Video calls and online meetings
- Mobile calls
- Call center data
