Qfiniti Survey support for the Genesys GVP Platform Performance Management Extends Beyond the Agent New reports, workflow management, and web survey options are now available to help contact center managers improve agent evaluation and quality monitoring processes. By automatically analyzing evaluation and survey information and feeding that intelligence back into the system, Qfiniti identifies trends at the agent, quality assurance team, and customer levels. This enables contact center managers and company executives to form a deep understanding of performance from multiple angles and allows them to optimize service while driving operations that are in line with corporate strategies. New performance management features include: • Workflow management that tracks and improves the agent evaluation process • Calibration and checkpoint accuracy reports that provide performance monitoring and trending for quality assurance teams • Web Survey functionality that enables contact center managers to create, deliver, and interpret web-based surveys for customer analysis and insight Web and Third-Party Support Enables Cost-Effective Deployments All Qfiniti functionality is now available in a thin-client web architecture, a first in the industry. Additionally, Qfiniti now provides enterprises already invested in one or more recording systems with the ability to take full advantage of performance management and analytics functionality. This innovation makes Qfiniti the first contact center platform with the ability to import recordings from third-party recording systems and subsequently index, analyze and search those files, enabling enterprises to maximize the value of their existing information assets.

“Autonomy etalk remains committed to delivering intelligent yet cost-effective solutions for businesses looking to drive strategic contact center operations without hefty maintenance and IT interference,” said Jeff Westover, vice president of Autonomy etalk. “By offering a truly thin solution along with the widest range of integrations and proven scalability, we optimize the operations of all our customers, from small contact centers to large, geographically dispersed enterprises.” Autonomy ICE Ensures Compliance and Data Protection Autonomy Interaction Control Element (ICE) intelligently monitors audio and screen activity and applies compliance and governance to all employee interactions and system activities that are subject to specific policies. In the contact center, Autonomy ICE can automatically mask or mute customer sensitive data for Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance as well as prevent data loss by alerting compliance officers to potential breaches of information. Further, because Autonomy ICE can be leveraged as a true workflow monitoring tool for the enterprise, it allows departments to optimize business processes while automating legal compliance, information governance, policy management, and data loss protection.

“Autonomy continues to innovate at an impressive pace, and the benefits translate directly to our customers,” said Andrew Joiner, CEO of Autonomy etalk. “Autonomy’s unique ability to understand the meaning behind every piece of information, from third party contact center systems to PCI data enables us to deliver some truly unique solutions. For instance, no other company can solve the challenges of insider theft protection and data breaches the way we do. As a result, companies from every industry are turning to Autonomy to implement solutions that help them minimize losses as well as capitalize on the learnings from high employee productivity processes.” Please visit to learn more about the Autonomy etalk solutions.
