Automated Redaction of Audio and Transcripts for Compliance, Training and CX Awareness

Many regulatory standards require organizations to capture recordings. In addition, companies benefit greatly from capturing the Voice-of-the-Customer. This allows them to analyze information and adjust how responses and work with customers delivering a more efficient and positive customer experience.

Why Redact?

There is Risk associated with the capturing of sensitive customer data. Once you capture information, it becomes your responsibility. You are immediately in charge of security, ensuring compliance and are on the hook for all the associated costs and risks.

A recent survey of contact center agents for a large enterprise bank found that more than 55% of agents confirmed that customers share credit or debit card information with them over the phone. It doesn’t take long to consider how many financial institutions issue credit and debit cards and how many agents they employ to realize just how big the potential for a problem are.

What is Automated Redaction?

It can be applied to real-time, post-call and other audio utterances to safely review and share recorded audio and transcripts for customer experience insight, agent training and compliance. Automated redaction supports PCI/PII compliance while removing the threat of over/under redaction commonly encountered with agent pause and resume recording errors.
