Voice Biometrics Application

A government department uses voice biometrics to relieve busy jails in a more effective and cost-efficient way than administering ankle bracelets. The application ensures that low-risk criminals under house arrest are indeed at home by calling their home phone at random times and using voice biometrics to verify the identity of the person accurately.

IVR and Speech Recognition Application

A provider of public services was able to reduce the time to book appointments by over half with an IVR and speech recognition application. Citizens can call in and check if they are qualified to schedule a driving test, book and cancel tests, and get more information.

Child Support Payment Inquiries Application

A child support payment hotline chose ice for their IVR system; this decision led to a decrease in their operator-assisted calls by 40%. Their previous DTMF menu was slow and lengthy. The system was often overwhelmed, giving busy signals to callers. Now, callers can dial in and speak their account number and PIN to receive payment updates. For more complex inquiries, callers can leverage the organization’s comprehensive website and access live operators.
