At last month’s LISTEN event, we were excited to award three customers with LISTEN Awards for their achievements in speech analytics success.  The LISTEN awards were presented to customer engagement analytics users whose efforts had a direct impact on improving business results for their companies. Each year we are blown away by the business impact and innovation highlighted in the submissions for LISTEN Awards. It’s a challenge to select three winners with the amazing results achieved by all nominees. We love to recognize our customers in this way and allow them to share their speech analytics journey with the rest of our CallMiner users. The collaborative atmosphere of the LISTEN conference is the perfect venue to highlight their success and allow others to learn from it and take ideas back to their companies.

The winners were Quentin (Quinn) Burrell, Business Analyst at First Associates, Pulkit Jain, Manager of Business Information Analytics at Encore Capitol Group, Marvie Wright, Director of Leadership and Sales Training at Dialog Direct.

Quentin (Quinn) Burrell, Business Analyst at financial services provider First Associates, received one of the prestigious LISTEN Awards for his efforts in spearheading implementation of the automated CallMiner Eureka agent scoring system. With this implementation, the team realized impressive improvements in key metrics associated with First Associates’ business objectives such as 25% improvement in call verification and 20% increase in payment collection rates. Additionally, Quinn and his associate Matt Lurie won the inaugural Hackathon award for their leading work in developing an advanced First Call Resolution category.
