Business Performance Metrics

How contact centers drive business performance metrics

The CallMiner Eureka conversation analytics platform captures and analyzes 100% of customer conversations to deliver deeper insight that can drive business performance.

Access the untapped intelligence in your conversations with customers

Your contact center is an untapped source of value. In every conversation with contact center agents, your customers provide a wealth of unsolicited feedback that can be transformed into actionable intelligence to improve business performance. From opinions about products and services to feelings about your brand, the insight gleaned from customer conversations can inform business performance metrics and drive business performance improvement – if you have the right technology.

Some contact center technologies excel at text analytics to capture and analyze written communications, while others use speech analytics to mine voice-based interactions for insight. Few contact center platforms, however, can break down data silos to capture conversations across all channels – including phone, email, text, chat, web and social media.

That is where our conversation analytics platform can help. By capturing and analyzing 100% of customer conversations across every channel, CallMiner enables you to extract invaluable insight into your customers’ needs, wants, and emotions to improve business performance metrics and CX.

What conversation analytics can do

Conversation analytics transform the unstructured information trapped in audio and text-based conversations into structured data you can search, categorize, analyze, and score. Advanced acoustical analysis can measure stress levels, speed of speech, and other variables to measure a speaker’s agitation or the empathy in an agent’s voice. Since emotion has a bigger impact on brand loyalty than effectiveness or ease, this data provides a powerful metric for understanding customer behavior and improving interactions.

Artificial intelligence and machine learning enable conversation analytics to classify and score conversations, identifying the presence of words, phrases, and language that measure things like agent quality, customer satisfaction, compliance risk. Automated scorecards evaluate the performance of agents and contact centers as a whole.

To drive business performance management, conversation analytics can focus on reviewing patterns and insight at scale to better understand customers, meet their needs and expectations, and drive improved loyalty and satisfaction.

Frequently asked questions.

Business performance metrics are data points that reveal how well a business is achieving its goals. Business performance metrics may measure business performance as a whole or the performance of individuals, departments, products, marketing campaigns, and other aspects of business operations.

Conversation analytics is an AI-powered technology that captures and analyzes the conversations between customers and contact center agents. These interactions – via phone, chat, email, web, SMS, surveys, and social media – are a trove of unsolicited feedback that can be mined for actionable intelligence about what customers want and how businesses can meet their expectations. Conversation analytics converts the unstructured data in these exchanges into structured data that can be searched and analyzed for insight.

Conversation analytics reveals information about customers in greater detail – what they want, what’s bothering them, and how they feel about a brand or its products and services. With this information, businesses can identify and target areas for improvement that will enhance a customer’s experiences and result in more conversions, greater customer satisfaction, and higher lifetime value.
