Be proactive in monitoring contact center performance

Empirix VoiceWatch is a proactive customer experience management service that monitors the end-to-end performance of voice applications and infrastructure from the caller’s perspective.

It does this from the public switched telephone network (PSTN) right through to the interactive voice response (IVR).

VoiceWatch leverages Empirix’s extensive testing experience to uniquely identify current and potential problems and their root causes.

Standard VoiceWatch capabilities include:

  • Development of automated scripts, with script updates when IVR applications change
  • Hosting and execution of test scripts, 24/7
  • Phone calls placed every 5, 10, or 15 minutes
  • Use of speech recognition and/or timing of prompts
  • A secure website for viewing call results, performance trends, and historical summary reports
  • Alert notifications via email or SMS

VoiceWatch uses transactional call flows to navigate the contact center customer’s end-to-end experience through automated applications and systems.

Through this, it measures the availability, accuracy, and performance of network components, voice solutions, and back-end database systems.

VoiceWatch is customized for each client’s environment, network, systems, and needs, with specific tests, metrics, thresholds, and alerts that can be modified to meet individual requirements. A highly experienced Empirix consultant will work with you to define and implement the ideal monitoring solution for your contact center’s infrastructure.
