Deepgram Integrates with AudioCodes to Power Real-Time Voicebots and Analytics
Recent advances in artificial intelligence (AI) are driving a profound transformation in the way digital contact centers operate, enabling significant improvements in customer experience while also boosting operational efficiency and unlocking major cost savings. A growing number of customer interactions are handled directly by AI-powered agents, allowing live customer support personnel to focus their time and attention on the most complex customer problems that require specialized domain knowledge and a more hands-on customer interaction.
Underpinning all of these advances are improved conversational AI capabilities powered by underlying speech recognition and natural language understanding technologies, enabling customer interactions with voicebots in native tongue. Customer demand for a good user experience is extremely high. The proliferation of intelligent voice assistants and smart speaker products, like Amazon Alexa or Siri from Apple, has established a consumer standard for human-computer interaction using voice. And these expectations carry over into business domains—creating a high bar for companies to clear when crafting their own conversational AI experiences.
Providing customers with efficient, pleasant, and cost-effective service solutions is crucial for the long-term health of large enterprises. Rapid adoption of AI and machine learning capabilities have revolutionized the customer experience, allowing companies of all sizes to implement fully automated, voice-powered customer contact bots and leverage real-time analytics. AudioCodes, a leading provider of advanced communications, created the VoiceAI Connect platform to enable easy integration of voice bots into contact centers. It seamlessly ties real-time telephony services together with speech analytics services and popular bot frameworks, and is available as a fully managed service (Enterprise Edition) and as a self-service SaaS solution (AudioCodes Live Hub) supporting various deployment, integration and regulatory requirements.
AudioCodes high-definition voice technology and services enables enterprises and service providers to build and operate all-IP voice networks to deliver unified communications, contact center voice connectivity and innovation, and hosted business services, whether in the cloud or on premises. Deepgram is excited to release an integration with AudioCodes that provides speech-to-text (STT) services within the AudioCodes VoiceAI Connect editions. With this integration, the AudioCodes voicebot connectivity platform—VoiceAI Connect—now incorporates Deepgram’s industry-leading STT services as a core enabling technology (see the pictorial below).
VoiceAI Connect users can now utilize Deepgram’s streaming STT services with any real-time bot on the platform, allowing users to reap significant benefits in speed, accuracy, and ROI enabled by Deepgram’s end-to-end, deep learning solution for automatic speech recognition. And Deepgram supports deployment on-prem as well as public and private cloud.
