Liquid Voice and Ember launch speech analytics as a managed service for UK housing sector; End-to-end solution will improve customer service, reduce costs and meet compliance requirements

(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) UK -- Liquid Voice, the highly respected call recording specialist, has partnered with customer management consultancy, Ember Services, to introduce a speech analytics managed service for the UK housing sector. The new service combines Liquid Voice's advanced call recording technology and Ember's proven managed analytics capability. This end-to-end solution will capture customer conversations and analyse their content to provide insights that will help Liquid Voice's housing sector clients take action to improve customer service, reduce contact centre operating costs and meet regulatory obligations.

The new service will be previewed for the first time at the IT in Housing Exhibition held on 20 & 21 November at London's Olympia.

"We have worked with many organisations in the housing sector and recognise that they are keen to maximise their investment in call recording to generate additional benefits," explains Chris Berry, Business Development Director for Liquid Voice. With Ember we can apply speech analytics to recorded calls and provide strategic consultancy to interpret the findings.

And, because this is a managed service, our clients can achieve these benefits without capital investment in technology, expensive skills development or ongoing management costs." Liquid Voice delivers an integrated suite of computer telephony applications including call logging and recording systems, computer telephony integration, bespoke interactive voice response and auto-call distribution.

Liquid Voice's solutions have been successfully deployed by a growing number of ALMO (arms length management oganisations), public and private sector clients, including Civica, Gateway Housing Association and Spelthorne Borough Council.

"We have pioneered the use of speech analytics as an effective means of generating robust insight into our clients' customer management operations to help them define and execute strategy," says David Naylor, Head of Analytics for Ember. "With Liquid Voice, we are partnering with a housing industry specialist with a solid reputation for delivering the key underlying technology systems that allow analytics to flourish. Together, we will deliver a managed service that allows organisations in the housing sector to benefit from speech analytics delivered by an expert team with a track record in achieving tangible business results." Naylor highlights the power of managed analytics by referencing the experience of its client, London Borough of Merton, which is using the insights gained from the service to solve problems that prevent 43% of calls from being resolved at first contact, shift 23% of phone calls to lower cost channels and to eliminate 16% of calls deemed avoidable.

Liquid Voice will demonstrate its extensive portfolio, including elements of the new managed service, on stand 116 at the IT in Housing Exhibition.

Together with David Naylor of Ember and Chloe Weatherhead, Head of the Housing e-Academy at Virtual College, it will also co-host a workshop on 'Measurable Improvement', which will include elements of best practice in speech analytics and customer service excellence focused on the achievement of measurable return on investment.

NOTES FOR EDITORS Chris Berry of Liquid Voice and David Naylor of Ember Services are available for interview during the IT in Housing Exhibition (stand 116) or via telephone via prior arrangement.
