—Tillmann Braun, Customer Care Solutions
This award-winning compendium—available for the first time in English—is a guide and reference to understanding and implementing voice/speech applications in any organization. Written in plain, non-technical language for an international audience, Voice Compass offers practical guidance on the benefits of voice/speech technology and equips managers, marketers, sales professionals, consultants, and IT specialists with essential resources and strategies.
Voice Compass delivers the equivalent of a week’s worth of in-depth consulting, as Judith Markowitz, Bill Meisel, Bruce Balentine and other top experts share their knowledge and advice on a range of topics for decision makers. Listings of manufacturers, service providers, system integrators, and other industry suppliers comprise a virtual Who’s Who of the global voice/speech technology marketplace.
Voice Compass is divided into 4 main sections:
- Section One features an extensive introduction and industry overview.
- Section Two presents case studies featuring voice applications and innovations, with a focus on achieving financial objectives/ROI.
- Section Three provides market focus and data on more than 400 companies across seven key market segments.
- Section Four explores the technologies and tools of the trade, using clear explanations and graphics that aid comprehension.
