Voxeo, the leading provider of Unlocked Communications(TM) solutions,
and now an Aspect company, today announced that it has joined forces
with BT, a global leader in managed networked IT services, to provide
clients around the world with low-cost, low-risk, cloud interactive
voice response (IVR) and automated self-service solutions that can be
accessed via phone, web, text and social media channels. 
BT uses Voxeo Prophecy and CXP (formerly VoiceObjects) to deliver
fully integrated customer self-service solutions to clients on a
per-transaction or per-minute basis as part of its BT Auto Contact
offering. BT Auto Contact satisfies a global and fast-growing
appetite for self-service solutions that make it easy for customers
to access services 24/7 across multiple channels and reduces the
business cost associated with providing those services by up to 90%
when compared to live agent support. 
"BT Auto Contact enables customers to serve themselves and costs from
as little as 23p per transaction. Organizations can significantly
reduce their service costs while improving customer satisfaction by
deploying effective, telephone-based self-service," says Andrew
Small, VP BT Contact & BT One, BT Global Services. "Voxeo's
multi-channel capabilities provide a unified technology
infrastructure for integrating additional online and mobile
self-service options. Organizations can deploy their auto contact
applications across multiple channels and multiple geographies."  
Voxeo's IVR platform is integrated with BT Inbound Contact, BT's
global voice network, which intelligently routes voice traffic across
170 countries and will allow multi-national deployments to be
implemented and managed centrally. Voxeo's application development,
management and analytics platform, Voxeo CXP, allows BT to build,
manage and monitor the performance of bespoke self-service solutions. 
"We chose Voxeo because its technologies are aligned with BT's
strategic objective to help our customers deploy global,
multi-channel applications quickly and cost effectively," says Small.
"Voxeo's advanced multi-lingual speech recognition capabilities, plus
its highly sophisticated analytics and reporting capabilities give us
the confidence to build and manage even the most complex
multi-national self-service deployments." 
Paul Thomas, VP Sales EMEA of Voxeo states, "We welcome the
collaboration with BT, which allows us to extend our global reach
with a recognized world leader. We are focused on working with
companies that are committed, not just to the development of
innovative self-service solutions, but to delivering high performance
throughout their lifetime. BT's commitment to that objective is
clear." 
With the combination of BT's global network reach and Voxeo's
distributed platforms across Europe, North America and AsiaPac,
organizations can roll out advanced self-service applications to more
than 170 countries quickly and with low risk.
