Australian Taxation Office Deploys Nuance Voice Biometrics in its Call Center

Nuance Communications, Inc. announced that the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) has completed its two-phased deployment of Nuance’s voice biometrics solutions in its call center in an effort to build stronger customer relationships with taxpayers and enhance authentication by replacing intrusive security questioning. With the introduction of its voice biometrics systems, ATO becomes the first organization in Australia to deploy voice biometrics in this manner. The ATO receives approximately nine million calls per year from the community, with around 75% of these calls requiring an ATO agent to verify the caller’s identity. In addition, the ATO expects to receive more than half (4.3) million of these calls within its three-month peak tax period between July and October 2015. Prior to voice biometrics, when a customer called to conduct a transaction with the ATO, the authentication process involved several steps, putting pressure not only on customers to provide personal details or have the correct documentation in front of them, but also on the ATO’s call center agents, who collectively spent approximately 75,000 hours each year just trying to verify customers over the phone. To solve this, the ATO chose to deploy Nuance’s voice biometrics solutions, in partnership with Optus, an existing managed network services provider, and Nuance. The ATO completed its first installation of Nuance’s VocalPassword solution in September 2014, whereby customers speak a simple passphrase to verify their account. In April 2015, the ATO completed its second phase of deployment, the implementation of Nuance’s FreeSpeechsolution, a deployment in Australia that verifies customers during inbound and outbound calls without intrusive questioning, providing a seamless experience for customers. Combined, the new VocalPassword and FreeSpeech voice biometrics solutions provide an added layer of security for ATO customers, helping to prevent and detect identity theft. This streamlined approach has let the ATO quickly boost call completion rates, while also improving security for customers using the contact center. Some initial results from the two-phase deployment include: Between September 2014 and mid July 2015, more than 760,000 Australians have enrolled for the voice biometrics solution. This is an insight into the growth expected during the 2015 tax period: the busiest period for ATO call centers. Early customer feedback has indicated that the contact center experience has improved, with repeat callers experiencing a 40-45 second reduction in the average time that they are on the phone with an agent. Within the first 12 days of the FreeSpeech release, total FreeSpeech enrollments were 25% of the volume of VocalPassword enrollments for the previous eight months, highlighting the simplicity and seamless nature of the system. There have been over 480,000 successful VocalPassword verifications and over 104,000 successful FreeSpeech verifications upon the Australian public’s use of the system.
