THE BUSINESS NEED

The company had limited agent bandwidth and had to deal with high call volumes. It was observed that manual after-call-work summarization caused factual errors and agents sometimes missed out on capturing important information. Additionally, it was difficult to monitor every call manually to capture important information accurately from the customers' voice data.

This task used to take about 60 seconds for each call, taking the average call handling time to five minutes. It was observed that call center agents were spending too much of their valuable time in mandatory after-call-work tasks. The company wanted to automate this process to help agents reduce the time spent doing mandatory tasks, increase their productivity and bring more focus on client servicing.


A CONVERSATIONAL SERVICE AUTOMATION SOLUTION

The customer chose Uniphore’s Conversational Analytics solution—auMina™ to reduce operational cost and time spent by customer service advisors on mandatory tasks. The conversational analytics solution auMina™ uses the power of AI, NLP and ML technologies to increase the productivity of contact center agents by automating disposition capture and after-call-work summarization of every call.


HOW IT WORKS

As the call progresses between a customer and the agent, the solution transfers the recorded audio to the transcription engine where the speech is converted to text. The transcript of the call is further sent to a Natural Language Processing (NLP) layer to extract relevant information. The system automatically generates call summary. The auto-summarized report of a call eventually reflects on the Agent Desktop Application. The agent can now review and edit call summary within the Agent Desktop Application and take necessary action if required.
