Smart Voice Applications for a Smarter Enterprise

Delivering on the promise of speech automation – creating a superior caller experience while realizing the benefits of cost savings and efficiency gains – requires much more than the implementation of technology. It requires a combined effort that touches all parts of the business and includes powerful applications with strategy, business process optimization and customized solution design that meets your unique needs. This is where the team of Nuance and IBM stands apart.

Today, enterprises must work smarter by adapting quickly to new customer trends and business events. Nuance and IBM understand the value of collaboration among all groups within the organization and dramatically speeding up the pace of process change. For example, IBM’s family of WebSphere products and processes generate Business Process Management (BPM) and Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) benefits. Nuance automation solutions extend those benefits to the voice channel. Our joint solutions deliver customized and personalized caller experience, with BPM providing the business context and the underlying SOA services providing the information building blocks to drive the application context.

Together, IBM and Nuance deliver both the best caller experience and the rapid return on investment required by contact center executives. The art and the science of contact center automation are elevated with the combined efforts of our application designers and speech scientists, data experts and engineers, and our implementation and support teams – the largest in the world.
