"Speech analytics is one of the fastest growing segments within the speech technology industry. And based on our panel of experts, companies serious about deploying speech analytics should put Autonomy etalk on their short list of vendors to consider," said David Myron , editorial director of Speech Technology magazine.

Autonomy etalk delivers contextual-based speech analytics to help businesses analyze their contact center interactions and retrieve relevant data for regulatory compliance, customer disputes, eDiscovery, and quality assurance. By analyzing recorded and in-progress interactions, Autonomy etalk's speech analytics delivers real-time information that can be used to improve customer service, operational performance, and strategic business programs.

Autonomy etalk employs a unique combination of technologies that enable computers to form a human-like underĂ‚­standing of unstructured information. The Intelligent Data Operating Layer (IDOL) forms both a conceptual and contextual understanding of unstructured data, allowing word/phrase-based searches, conceptual searches, two-dimensional trend analysis, sentiment analysis, and script adherence matches. This allows the user to see patterns in agent and customer behavior, identify service problems, and tag competitive threats.

"We are honored to be recognized for our contributions to the speech industry, especially with the growing need for speech analytics in the contact center," said Scott Shute , Autonomy etalk's chief executive officer. "Autonomy etalk is committed to developing technology that not only meets the high demand for speech solutions, but that delivers real value to the business."
