Voice is without doubt the most natural and effective form of human communication. Even today, where customers have so many ways to get in touch with a business, such as chatbots or email, they overwhelmingly prefer to speak to a real person on the other end of the line.
And the statistics back this up. In fact, in their May 2021 CX Technology Trends report, research firm Metrigy found that a whopping 85 percent of customers opt to use voice for communicating with contact centers, regardless of whether they’re talking to live agents or voicebots.
It’s All About Infrastructure
Because of these strong customer preferences, and also because many customers are only converted to a sale after a final clarification call, it’s fair to say that voice is probably the most important component of any contact center.
A successful contact center therefore requires a voice infrastructure that delivers crystal-clear calling capabilities at all times, without interruption or interference – and not just for agent calls. AI-driven contact center applications like voice biometrics, sentiment analysis, IVR and other voice technologies also require high call quality and clarity to perform effectively.
