- Hosting and Application Development Services to Bring Speech Technologies to Call Centres.
SRC, Stand D68, Hall 8, NEC Birmingham, 9-10th October 2001

London, England – July 25 2001– SRC Telecom, the telephony based speech recognition arm of SRC (The Speech Recognition Company), is debuting the first Europe based VXML (Voice XML) applications hosting service at Call Centre Expo in October. At the show, the company will highlight the benefits of introducing speech recognition to call centre operations, which enable customer services to be streamlined.

Speech-based systems allow companies to provide real-time information and transaction services to their customers, whilst reducing the need for live operators to deal with routine or high volume call types. Human resources can then be allocated more efficiently, concentrating on more complex or higher value activities.

Speech-enabled call centre applications significantly reduce costs and, if well designed, can improve customer service. These applications can deliver significant returns on companies’ investments. It is estimated that integrating speech recognition technology into applications can provide a payback within 6-12 months in those call centres that maintain more than 50 live operators. With the advent of SRC’s applications hosting services, an increasing number of call centres will be able to take advantage of dramatic operational savings without major upfront investment in new platforms and applications development.
