How conversation intelligence transforms an inbound call center

Conversation intelligence is an AI-powered technology that determines the meaning of voice and text-based interactions as well as the emotions driving the communication. The CallMiner conversation intelligence platform can capture and interpret exchanges that happen over the phone and in email, chat, web, social media, and SMS texts, transforming the unstructured information in these interactions into structured data that can be aggregated, analyzed, categorized, and scored.

By mining every conversation for insight and actionable intelligence, CallMiner Eureka helps inbound call centers achieve optimal performance and efficiency by:

Optimizing metrics around productivity, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness is also one of the top challenges for inbound call centers.
