VoiceObjects 7.2 Adds Dynamic Video Generation, Business Task and Personalization Tracking and Analysis

First Phone Application Server Software Suite to Provide Out-of-the-Box Analytics and Reporting on Business Process Metrics

(PresseBox) (SAn Mateo,CA, ) VoiceObjects, Inc., the leading provider of adaptive self-service phone portals, today announced the availability of VoiceObjects 7.2, the latest version of the company´s award-winning phone application server software suite. VoiceObjects 7.2 contains new features and capabilities, including VoiceObjects Media Mixer, a dynamic video rendering engine. VoiceObjects Server and VoiceObjects Analyzer, two major components of VoiceObjects 7.2, now include the ability to track and analyze the completion of business tasks by phone self-service users. In addition, the company announced support for the Cognos 8 Business Intelligence platform.

"In order to deliver excellent customer service, it is vital that organizations strategically leverage their IVR platform to conduct more intelligent customer transactions to promote retention and upsell and cross-sell opportunities," said Daniel Hong, Lead Analyst of Customer Interaction Technologies at Datamonitor. "With VoiceObjects 7.2´s analytic and reporting capabilities, business managers have greater visibility into the caller experience. By offering a clearer picture of consumer behavior, businesses can tailor the customer experience so it fits in with overall trend towards personalized customer service."

Personalized, Dynamically Generated Video

VoiceObjects 7.2 supports phone applications that use voice, video, text, touch-tone, and Web interfaces. VoiceObjects Media Mixer enables the dynamic rendering of video. Video clips, audio clips, text, images and HTML snippets are dynamically assembled and rendered at call-time, creating high-quality video for delivery to phone screens. Video contents can be selected in response to caller behavior or in accordance with information contained in CRM or other databases, providing per-caller personalization. Dynamically generating video also enables other customization, including the intelligent selection and delivery of a particular video from a library of available advertisements.

Track and Analyze Business Tasks, Per-Caller Personalization

VoiceObjects 7.2 features significant enhancements to VoiceObjects Server and VoiceObjects Analyzer, enabling organizations to track and analyze the completion of business tasks by phone self-service users. Using these features, business users, rather than programmers, can monitor and optimize the performance of phone applications, reducing the time and resources required for these tasks. The software automatically logs business task execution results in the VoiceObjects Infostore for analysis. Typical business tasks include successfully booking an airline flight or resetting a PIN. Key performance indicators for business tasks are also automatically logged, including number of attempts, success rate, caller behavior during task completion and metrics related to voice recognition quality.

In addition, VoiceObjects 7.2 can track and analyze a phone application´s per-caller personalization, providing information on, for example, "gold" customer caller behavior vs. "platinum" customer caller behavior. The new analytics capabilities are complemented by support for the Cognos 8 Business Intelligence platform, in addition to Business Objects and MicroStrategy platforms, which are currently supported.
