Smart Voice Applications for a Smarter Enterprise
Delivering on the promise of speech automation – creating a superior caller experience while realising the benefits of cost savings and efficiency gains – requires much more than the implementation of technology. It requires a combined effort that touches all parts of the business and includes powerful applications with strategy, business process optimisation and customised solution design that meets your unique needs. This is where the team of Nuance and IBM stands apart.
Today, enterprises must work smarter by adapting quickly to new customer trends and business events. Nuance and IBM understand the value of collaboration among all groups within the organisation and dramatically speeding up the pace of process change. For example, IBM’s family of WebSphere products and processes generate Business Process Management (BPM) and Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) benefits. Nuance automation solutions extend those benefits to the voice channel. Our joint solutions deliver customised and personalised caller experience, with BPM providing the business context and the underlying SOA services providing the information building blocks to drive the application context.
Together, IBM and Nuance deliver both the best caller experience and the rapid return on investment required by contact centre executives. The art and the science of contact centre automation are elevated with the combined efforts of our application designers and speech scientists, data experts and engineers and our implementation and support teams – the largest in the world.
