CTI Group to Launch Interactive Communications Management Suite for Contact Centers

The SmartInteraction Suite Provides Contact Center Managers With the Evaluation and Analytics Toolset to Improve Efficiency, Productivity and Customer Service

INDIANAPOLIS, IN--(Marketwire - February 24, 2011) - CTI Group (Holdings) Inc. (www.ctigroup.com) (OTCBB: CTIG), an international provider of enterprise communications management software and services, carrier class voice over internet protocol (VoIP) management applications, enterprise and carrier class call recording solutions and electronic invoice processing and management (EIM), today announced that it will be launching the SmartInteraction Suite for contact centers at the Channel Partners Conference & Expo (Booth 1137, Las Vegas, March 13-15, 2011). Engineered to meet the needs of VoIP and premised-based contact centers, CTI Group extends its SmartRecord® solution with the release of their SmartInteraction Suite. The SmartInteraction Suite provides organizations of all types and disciplines with a comprehensive platform for recording, evaluating and taking action on valuable phone based customer interaction.

Compatible with BroadSoft's BroadWorks UC platform, the Avaya Aura IP communications platform and Cisco's Unified Communications Manager, the SmartInteraction Suite is a highly configurable toolset which incorporates CTI Group's award winning call recording solution SmartRecord with the advanced speech search and analytics technology from Aurix integrated within it. By designing the Suite with the Aurix phonetic analytics incorporated, contact centers of any size are able to take advantage of the benefits that this advanced functionality offers at a cost effective price. It is an ideal solution for sales and marketing organizations looking for a quick and easy-to-use tool for capturing advanced customer interaction intelligence.

As with CTI Group's entire portfolio of call recording and call accounting solutions, the SmartInteraction Suite has been developed with the robustness demanded by large enterprises and contact centers but with the scalability required to meet the needs and budgets of the SMB and small to medium sized contact centers. The extensive feature set of SmartRecord has now been rounded out to include:

  • SmartListen -- audio mining allows organizations to utilize speech analytics to index recordings phonetically for easy retrieval and reporting. This feature also enables users to automatically categorize or tag calls based on the information found in the call.
  • SmartEvaluate -- our advanced form of call handler evaluation utilizes audio mining and analytics enabled by Aurix to isolate calls by certain criteria in order to perform several key business functions including performance with regard to compliance, procedure, call handling and customer service.
  • SmartCapture -- screen recording extends and completes the picture of the call handler process by linking the voice recording with the corresponding visual recording of the keystroke activity. This capability is extremely beneficial in terms of service improvement, compliance, training and general oversight.
  • Centralized Storage -- allows organizations of any type to benefit from a centralized library of all recordings. Ideal for global organizations with multiple and remote locations, or organizations recording from multiple types of platforms, this function further enables the benefits of cloud-based storage and storage compliance standardization.
  • Feature Reporting -- designed to empower end-users to license, report and track use of the Suite's features.

Sid Rao, Chief Technology Officer of CTI Group, commented: "Throughout the development of the SmartInteraction Suite, we surveyed our contact center customers about what features and functionality they wanted out of their communications management system. It is vital to us that we deliver a solution that not only meets their initial needs but also provides a number of features beyond their immediate requirements. By integrating speech search and analytics within the Suite, organizations are able to capture the 'voice of the customer,' enabling them to identify the vital trends which can have a significant impact on future sales."
