Metaphor IVR+ Product Modules

Metaphor Survey

The Metaphor Survey module lets incoming callers opt-in to participate in an IVR survey conducted at the end of the call. The data helps users optimize future calls and improve service levels.

Metaphor Listen

Metaphor Listen records call audio and zooms in on any point to listen and evaluate the caller’s responses. Users can identify drop-off points or response patterns and extract this data to further optimize call flows.

Metaphor Speech

Often described as “say anything”, Natural Language speech recognition is an advanced voice recognition tool that analyzes the caller’s spoken responses. Metaphor Speech identifies and routes calls based on the caller’s choice of words and phrases, allowing him to resolve issues without waiting.

Metaphor Vision

Metaphor Vision is an advanced post-call analytics and troubleshooting tool. Vision zeroes in on specific calls to identify and resolve issues such as routing rules, speech recognition and integrations. Users can then export the data for easy viewing and sharing.

Metaphor Fraud Protection

Metaphor Fraud Protection is an application that can detect, track and report on potential fraudulent activity in IVR transactions. Users can define rules specific to their environment that, when breached, can identify fraudulent behavior and prevent these transactions from occurring.
