Speech and Text Analytics Increase in Popularity

In a shocking turn of events, this year’s results saw a reduction in all methods used to capture customer feedback except speech and text analytics.

This year the use of speech and text analytics to capture customer feedback rose 17.3% to 16.3%, just below 2020’s figure of 16.6%.

It is possible that this rise is a result of contact centres turning to smart solutions to monitor customer sentiment and gather feedback rather than continuing to use other resource-heavy alternatives.

Popularity Plummets Across the Board

The most significant decreases are in Voice of Employees (VoE), which dropped 12.2% from 59.0% in 2021 to 51.8% (decreasing 25.6% since 2019), customer research, which plummeted 23.3% to 31.9%, and website surveys, which have fallen 31.7% to 24.1%.

All three of these methods now stand at their lowest point for the last four years; however, there have also been less significant decreases for the other methods of capturing customer feedback.
