In part due to the Autonomy solutions, Inovis has been able to achieve the goal of providing solutions to customers at first touch.

Inovis has leveraged Autonomy etalk's voice and screen recording capabilities for coaching and in 'best practices' training for new hires and existing agents. By capturing customer interactions to use as examples of successful client engagements, Inovis has improved the way its agents handle customer calls and shifted support resources in a more cost-effective direction.

"A focus on first call resolution is important to ensuring our clients are confident in the services Inovis provides. By rethinking the way our first line support handles calls, we are able to more quickly resolve our clients inquiries, and Autonomy etalk has allowed us to do that much more effectively," said Vicki Sewell , senior vice president, Client Services and Customer Support, Inovis.

"We are very pleased to have such a successful partnership with Inovis and be a key part in supporting its client service initiatives," said Scott Shute , Autonomy etalk's chief executive officer. "Inovis has a strong commitment to its customer base, which is clearly reinforced by its investment in innovative contact center technology and processes."

The Intelligent Contact Center makes it possible for organizations to capture, share and analyze critical structured and unstructured data that flows through the contact center, allowing the bi-directional sharing of that data with the rest of the enterprise. This is accomplished through a combination of multi-channel interaction analysis, real-time agent support and contact center performance management, including tools for call recording, quality monitoring, agent performance evaluations, eLearning, and customer surveys.
