What is the skills certification process?

The Skills Certification process consists of two parts:

  • The Application Presentation: Candidate presents a speech application in which they have contributed to the development. We expect to see some of the documentation regarding the application (including design elements like call flow diagrams, business requirements).

What Does the Nuance Microsoft Acquisition Mean for the Voice Industry?

What Does the Nuance Microsoft Acquisition Mean for the Voice Industry?

Microsoft announced Monday, April 12th, 2021 that it is acquiring Nuance with a staggering $19.7 billion cash buy. The amount of the cash buy demonstrates the value and potential within voice technology and AI in a post-COVID world.

Nuance’s growth and reputation are tied directly to its success with speech recognition software, which uses deep learning to transcribe speech and improves its accuracy over time by adapting to a user’s voice. The focus of this acquisition is the acceleration of digital transformation for the healthcare industry. The CEO of Microsoft, Satya Nadella, specifically called out the potential and highlighted it as the key driver of the acquisition.

“When you think about the provider market… digital tech is going to be the key,” he told CNBC.

The interesting point about this acquisition is that Nuance already has Microsoft’s Azure woven into its software. In 2019, Nuance and Microsoft joined forces on a healthcare stack that included speech recognition and processing, clinical documentation, decision support, and Azure AI and natural language tools. Now, with this acquisition, Nuance and Microsoft are sure to integrate fully.

With this news, LumenVox, more than ever, is committed to a stack with flexibility, which is why:

With cutting-edge AI, speech recognition, and other valuable tools we enable all industries by empowering our partners.

Our technology is universally applicable so that any size organization, with any existing technology, can integrate our entire stack conveniently and cost-effectively. To learn more, contact us today.

LumenVox’ Take on the Total Experience Featured in Speech Technology Magazine

LumenVox’ Take on the Total Experience Featured in Speech Technology Magazine

Since 2009, Speech Technology Magazine has been the premier online destination for comprehensive, independent coverage of information impacting speech technologies. This year LumenVox is proud to have a white paper featured, addressing exactly how businesses can leverage speech technology to take on the Total Experience.

What’s Total Experience? Total Experience (TX) refers to the entire company experience – employee, customer, and user. It takes a 360-degree look at a business to identify gaps and fill them, and it ties the critical pieces together—people and technology.

Now that it’s 2021, reality has set in: The business environment is evolving and doing so rapidly. That means it’s critical organizations stay one step ahead of their customers and their competitors. A business’ technology must evolve in tandem—and that technology needs to address not just the Customer Experience (CX), but the Total Experience.

The truth is, though, that organizations are overwhelmed. Where do they start? How do they know which technology is really going to make an impact?

Speech technology is the ideal starting point because it can empower organizations to shift from enhancing CX to addressing and enriching the Total Experience. In this white paper, we outline exactly how speech technology can address major pain points including friction in the IVR, for employees and customers.

Call Progress Analysis ensures outbound message delivery and is currently beating the competition with 98.6% accuracy of over 500 million outbound calls per month. As an enhancement to the Avaya Proactive Outreach Manager, you can ensure the message is delivered successfully and clearly. No cutoff. No miscommunication.

Automatic Speech Recognition converts spoken audio into text, providing users with a more efficient way to interact with automated systems. Increase IVR containment by allowing callers to self-service.

Text-to-Speech provides the voice output for conveying information to callers – further assisting with containment. With Text-to-Speech you can speech-enable your telephony platform or software application.

LumenVox’ Top 10 Blogs of 2020

LumenVox’ Top 10 Blogs of 2020

As 2021 begins, we wanted to look back at all the content we put out to educate and inform our LumenVox readers in 2020. We touched on a diverse set of subjects from artificial intelligence to fraud strategy for contact centers—and even introduced a podcast series with LumenVox thought leaders. Here’s a summary of our top 10 blog posts that resonated with our audience in 2020.

  1. On Voice Biometric Privacy and Informed Consent – In 2020 it was announced that a biometric data privacy suit implicated the voice biometrics company, Pindrop. According to the plaintiffs, informed consent requirements were not followed when collecting, storing, and utilizing voiceprints to authenticate customers for Amazon Web Services, which the plaintiffs claim violates the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA). This scenario is exactly what LumenVox works hard to avoid. Find out how here.
  2. A Dive Into Deep Learning – Automatic Speech Recognition is growing by leaps and bounds each year, especially as artificial intelligence contributes to evolution. A crucial building block of artificial intelligence is deep learning. What is it, and how does it work?
  3. LumenVox Recognized as a New Partner of Cisco SolutionsPlus – In 2020 we officially became a Cisco SolutionsPlus Partner. This alliance formally recognized the compatibility of LumenVox products and introduced them to the Cisco SolutionsPlus marketplace. Find out more about this partnership in our blog here.
  4. What Does it Mean to be Named on the Opus Research 2020 Core Technology Provider Intelliview Map? – Opus Research, the go-to analyst firm for critical insight on software and services that support multimodal customer care, published their 2020 Intelligent Authentication and Fraud Prevention Intelliview: Solutions for Emerging Security Threats and CX Challenges. In this edition we were proud to be a major highlight.
  5. The Art of Speech & a Conversational IVR – Here we interviewed LumenVox Software Engineer Shaun McThomas to gain his perspective on the art of integrating speech technology with IVRs to enhance the customer experience.
  6. LumenVox Call Progress Analysis vs. Answering Machine Detection: What’s The Difference? – LumenVox Call Progress Analysis (CPA) is a technology that delivers proactive outbound phone messages with incredible accuracy, enabling businesses to give their customers the information they need exactly when they need it. CPA accomplishes this by a unique combination of tone detection and speech recognition. At first blush, the world of voice technology may label this product as Answering Machine Detection. But it’s not. So what’s the difference?
  7. 3 Key Strategies for Credit Unions {in the Time of COVID} – Fraud is a rising issue due to uncertain economic times. Operational efficiencies are a high priority because the contact center is now being inundated with calls—time, more than ever, is money. Member experience is always at the top of the priority list because it inspires every roadmap. How can credit unions address these priorities? This blog identifies three key strategies.
  8. How to Increase IVR Containment – The number of customers calling organizations to request a promise to pay is increasing significantly with these uncertain financial times. The result is a tsunami of phone calls that contact centers can’t handle. What’s the solution?
  9. How to Alleviate Stress for Remote Workers with Automated Password Reset – Did you know that during normal conditions, approximately 30% of Help Desk calls are for routine password resets? It’s a pain point that is often overlooked. This article demonstrates how organizations can address this with a simple self-service solution.
  10. How Passive Voice Biometrics Empowers Contact Centers – Fraud was a hot topic all throughout 2020. This blog addresses the fraud pain point in the time of COVID as well as the painful process of contact center authentication with technology called Passive Voice Biometrics.

We’re excited to get writing for 2021, offering our take on subjects that matter most to anyone who wants to offer a secure, frictionless customer experience. Questions? Contact us today!
