How to leverage voice biometrics to boost the value of your solutions

The regulatory landscape and the cost of fraud are making organizations increasingly aware of the need for strong authentication, and what that means.

Biometrics are being adopted by organizations across a broad range of verticals to secure the voice channel. In many cases, however, how to take full advantage of voice biometrics is not clear to either the organization implementing the technology for the first time, or the OEMs and system integrators who are delivering it.

Voice is widely expected to grow as a preferred method of interaction for a range of use cases, not just in the contact center. Examples include workforce management applications like time and attendance for industries such as utilities, engineering maintenance, or environmental management; correctional facilities; healthcare (including telehealth); and finance. The EU’s new PSD2 regulation requires two out of three authentication factors to be used for strong customer authentication for financial transactions over a certain amount. Voice biometrics is ideally suited for use in such a multi-factor authentication scenario for authenticating or verifying identity over the phone.

Voice biometrics can be deployed for any service delivered over the phone that requires authentication to deliver five major advantages, including improving the customer experience (CX), fraud risk mitigation, enhanced brand reputation, improved workforce morale, motivation, and staff retention, as well as higher success in a range of contact center metrics and key performance indicators.


In Aculab’s “VoiSentry – How voice biometrics can boost the value of your solutions” webinar on May 23, 2019, you will learn about:

  • The case for change – how biometrics addresses the challenges of knowledge-based authentication (KBI)
  • Core concepts – the essentials for understanding the technology
  • Case study examples – how voice biometrics delivers results
  • Designing for customer adoption – how good design overcomes end user challenges
  • Beyond the ROI – how to position voice biometrics to your customers

 

The webinar will feature SymNex Consulting Founder Matt Smallman, who works with customer centric organizations including Fidelity Investments and Lloyds Banking Group to help the maximize the impact of voice biometrics. He has been featured by the BBC, the FT, and the Wall Street Journal after leading the ground-breaking implementation of voice biometrics at Barclays Wealth division. Smallman will be joined by three experts in voice biometrics from Aculab.

  • The technology working behind the scenes to support emergency services networks

    Now more than ever, telecoms infrastructures play a vital role in supporting the health of our communities. Behind the scenes, networking technologies are working to keep the lines of communications open between emergency services and those in need.

    A recent example from the Lombardy region of Italy highlights a typical scenario:

  • What’s wrong with Knowledge-Based Authentication (KBA)?

    For many years, online and telephone-based authentication has relied on knowledge-based systems using passwords, PINs, and question-and-answer dialogues to confirm a customer’s identity. With the explosion in the number of contact centres, this approach is close to breaking point. Nobody in the modern world can be expected to remember all of the passwords they need to securely access all their services.

  • It’s voice biometrics, not rocket science

    The concept of biometric speaker identification or verification may, at one stage, have seemed like a technical nightmare. The reality is somewhat different. All the sophisticated algorithms and voice processing have already been developed; deploying the application is actually the simple part.

  • Multi-lingual speech recognition now supported on Aculab Cloud

    We’re listening – what would you like to do today?

    A generation of people have grown up trying to avoid ringing a contact centre – not because they didn’t like talking to the cheery people who work in such places, but because they first had to get past the IVR system put in place to direct the call. Press 1 for support, 2 for sales, 3 if you know the extension of the person you wish to speak to.…and so on, and so on. We quickly realised that many of these systems would let you bypass the IVR menu and get to a real person if we pressed ‘0’.
