Verint Unveils Groundbreaking New Voice of the Customer Cloud Solution that Combines Digital Leadership and Listening at Scale in the Contact Center

Sponsored by Businesswire

Systems Inc.
(Nasdaq: VRNT), The Customer Engagement Company,
today announced the launch of the industry’s first comprehensive,
enterprise-wide view of the voice of the customer, now a cornerstone of
its expanding Voice of Customer (VoC) strategy. Tailored to serve the
unique needs of CX leaders, Verint Unified VoC* provides a
complete view of direct, indirect and inferred VoC from across key
customer engagement channels with a powerful, automated analytics engine
to deliver actionable insights. These insights empower organizations to
prioritize and act upon the CX initiatives that deliver the most
significant financial impact.

According to a November 2018 Market
Guide for the Voice-of-the-Customer
from Gartner1, “the
ability to collect direct feedback through traditional email, web and/or
mobile surveys is now standard and organizations should seek to collect,
combine and interpret other forms of direct feedback with indirect
feedback and inferred feedback. They then turn that data into alerts,
reports, customized dashboards and business-rule-based actions, and get
the right information to the right people at the right time.”

Similarly, Forrester’s 2019 research2,
charting top VoC trends, highlights sharing VoC data throughout an
organization, a focus on unstructured and unsolicited customer
interaction data, integrating VoC and operational data, embedded
prioritization frameworks, and better execution of “closing the loop”
among the trending practices that help lead to best-in-class VoC
programs. The report further notes “VoC programs are still too focused
on surveys, squander unstructured and unsolicited feedback, lack full
data integration, and struggle to prove business value.”

Only Verint Unified VoC enables organizations to take advantage of these
emerging trends and achieve true competitive advantage, notably through
its clear market leadership and largest market presence in digital
and as the only solution that natively taps into the rich CX
insights available from contact center interactions through speech and
text analytics.

Key capabilities include:

  • Cross-channel structured and unstructured VoC data collection
    including email, SMS and post call IVR surveys, digital feedback from
    websites and mobile devices, and customer interactions from contact
    centers that provide organizations a complete view of their customer
    and uncover blind spots often missed by other products.
  • Unified VoC data analysis allowing organizations to map data from
    multiple sources, create common KPI’s, and drive insights and take
    action such as the identification, sizing and prioritization of CX
    issues from across all channels to optimize ROI on CX initiatives.
  • Triggers, alerts, and case management that work out-of-the-box on the
    unified data sets to deliver VoC with real operational impact, such as
    automatically leveraging digital feedback to alert the contact center
    of emerging issues and initiate actions to resolve those issues.

“We’ve heard from the majority of our customers that surveying their
customers remains important, and yet is no longer enough to give them
what they need to differentiate in an increasingly competitive
marketplace,” says Verint’s Ben Smith, vice president and general
manager of Verint’s Voice of the Customer solutions. “We’re the only
provider in the market to empower organizations with the automated
ability to mine the millions of VoC interactions in their contact center
and digital channels. With our ability to collect these insights and
analyze them together with a variety of cross-channel survey and
operational data to drive action across the enterprise, Verint has
redefined the role of CX in the market.”

This announcement was made from Orlando at Verint’s Engage
Global Customer and Partner Conference, where the world’s most admired
brands are gathering to collaborate on ‘what’s next’ in customer
engagement. For more information on Verint Voice of the Customer
