Annual user conference highlights customer engagement analytics use cases and provides education and networking opportunities for attendees.

CallMiner, the leading platform provider of award-winning speech and customer engagement analytics, announced today that it honored three customers with LISTEN Awards for their achievements in speech analytics success at its annual user conference held October 23-25.  LISTEN awards were presented to customer engagement analytics users whose efforts had a direct impact on improving business results for their companies.

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.

CallMiner’s second LISTEN Award winner was Pulkit Jain, Manager of Business Information Analytics at financial services provider Encore Capital Group, in recognition of his groundbreaking work leveraging consumer interaction data to create robotic call simulators along with driving dramatic improvements in TCPA consent rates and 90% reduction of manual PCI intervention. The award was a culmination of the entire Encore team’s efforts in understanding consumers, their interactions and operational processes to create the code and underlying work that supports product development.

The third recipient of the 2018 LISTEN Award was Marvie Wright, Director of Leadership and Sales Training at marketing and customer engagement solution provider Dialog Direct for developing and implementing their client-focused sales training program powered by speech analytics, which continues to drive sustained improvements to their sales efforts including 10% increase in close rates and 8% improvement in quality scores.
