Video collaboration opens up opportunities for greater interaction and innovation, regardless of industry. Everyone benefits. For example, in healthcare, video is dramatically changing the way institutions interact with customers and professionals. In recent years, a number of hospitals across the United States have been subscribing to video and voice call centers that enable them to share language interpretation services, psychiatric care services and other developing capabilities. In the process, video collaboration is affecting business outcomes, changing business processes and helping healthcare facilities achieve scale, cost and efficiency not seen before.

One of the largest retail banks in the U.S. sought to improve customer satisfaction
in the call center by eliminating time-consuming processes. Limited by a nonspeech-
enabled IVR, the bank was constrained to outdated authentication
options, such as PIN numbers and knowledge-based authentication (KBA)
questions. Long enrollment processes and authentication challenges were
driving call handle times up, causing significant customer frustration. The bank
turned to Pindrop for help.
Using Pindrop’s multi-factor authentication solutions, the bank confidently
moved authentication away from costly agent-based KBA questions to passively
authenticating callers within the IVR. This not only reduced call handle times but
also improved customer account protection, by assessing every caller for risk
before enrollment and authentication.
In our always-on, always-connected world, healthcare consumers expect instant access to customer service, not just from 9 AM to 5 PM. It’s often no longer good enough for health plans to staff call centers during standard business hours. Members today typically want to be able to log in and help themselves to the answers they need from self-service channels whenever they want — and they want the experience to be highly personal.
One contact center benchmark study (see next page) revealed self-service channels can be a win-win for both businesses and consumers.1 When done well, self-service solutions can help businesses improve customer satisfaction while reducing costs. And consumers appreciate the convenience of getting answers quickly and efficiently.

Stop to think about how – and how often – your business interacts with customers. Every day, with each interaction, data is created. What percentage of the data generated by these interactions are you using? There are so many channels for interaction, like social media, call centers, sales staff, help and support resources, marketing and campaigns.
Typically, organizations believe that they are using only a small fraction of it effectively – at best, upwards of 10 percent of all the available data. Why? One reason relates to the difficulties in collecting all this data. This limitation is beginning to wane as commodity hardware becomes increasingly popular for big data storage. But another major inhibitor to examining all customer data has been the inability to examine millions, or even billions, of data points that constitute the customer picture. And much of this is now in the form of unstructured text inputs.
Gartner defines contact center infrastructure (CCI) as the products (equipment, software and services) needed to operate call centers for telephony support and contact centers for multichannel support. This type of infrastructure is used by customer and employee service and support centers, inbound and outbound telemarketing services, help desk services, government-operated support centers, and other types of structured communications operations.
