etalk Announces Qfiniti Enterprise with Real-Time Speech Analysis and Alerting



Qfiniti Enables Global Customer Service Organizations an Unprecedented Understanding of Customers' Interactions Through Innovative Speech and Text Analysis

IRVING, Texas, September 19/ -- etalk(R), a division of Autonomy (LSE: AU. or LSE: AU.L) and an innovative provider of contact center quality management, speech analytics
software and services, today announced its newest release of Qfiniti. Qfiniti
Enterprise is the industry's first unified call recording, agent evaluation, and advanced speech analytics solution for the growing contact center market. This solution delivers a scalable and centrally managed enterprise platform that allows international, multi-site customer service operations to effectively monitor, measure, improve and understand relevant customer interactions.

"etalk is an important addition to the Autonomy family, and is poised to radically change how contact centers operate and manage customer satisfaction. Autonomy is known in the market place for being highly innovative and on the cutting edge of enterprise search technologies to help companies manage large volumes of unstructured data" said Scott Shute, President of etalk. "etalk has provided industry leading products and
services to the contact center for over 22 years. The two companies combined can now provide the best of both to the growing contact center industry - innovative solutions and in-depth knowledge and expertise."

Qfiniti Enterprise is packed with exciting new features and functionality, including the first fully integrated recording, evaluation, and speech analytics offering for quality monitoring, logging, and VoIP-based call acquisition that does not use third-party analytics technology. In addition, the new interface provides a significant operational and visual improvement, and supports language localization which will open up more international opportunities.

Beyond traditional call recording, today's contact centers involve a sea of information that must be captured, processed, and distributed on a daily basis. Effective use of this information enables companies to remain competitive in an increasingly aggressive and customer-centric marketplace. An overwhelming percentage of the information that circulates in a contact center-audio recordings, documents, web pages, and emails-is unstructured in that it resides outside of a normal structured database and cannot be managed efficiently. This unstructured information contains valuable information, yet historically has been difficult to organize, categorize, and access.

Autonomy's Intelligent Data Operating Layer (IDOL) technology has been used by businesses as well the intelligence community to reign in unstructured information so that companies can finally access and manage all of their information, not just the information that fits neatly into fixed databases. Qfiniti Enterprise has embedded the IDOL engine into the Qfiniti platform so that every recorded voice transaction, as well as every element within those recordings, is easily searchable with unprecedented accuracy and speed. By automating data mining processes formerly performed manually,
Qfiniti Enterprise represents a major enhancement to traditional quality assurance and customer relationship management. This new technology uncovers valuable information tucked away in customer recordings and helps to automatically spot relevant trends across the business. By delivering a conceptual understanding of customer calls, Qfiniti Enterprise enables companies to extend customer service improvement beyond the agent interaction to the entire business.

"Although it is early days for the call center speech analytics market there are signs that it will play an important role over the coming years. The ability to analyze recorded customer interactions can provide previously untapped insights, useful across the enterprise." Noted Jim Davies, Principal CRM Analyst for Gartner.

"etalk's voice processing capabilities will change the way contact centers operate in the future. For example, etalk now has the ability to listen and understand a customer inquiry, and provide quick and accurate answers to assist the agent - improving customer satisfaction and lowering handle times," said Scott Shute etalk President. "Our goal of analyzing customer interactions in real-time, and providing relevant customer information quickly, will help contact center managers reduce customer churn and help retain important customer relationships." Shute added.

etalk will be demonstrating this exciting new technology at the ACCE conference in Seattle, WA (September 19 - 21), Conarec in Sao Paulo, Brazil (September 21 - 22) ICCM conference in Las Vegas, NV (September 26 - 27), and Call Centre Expo in Birmingham, UK (September 28 - 29).
