NICE’s states that its Real-Time Authentication solution enables organizations to authenticate customers in a matter of seconds, during the natural course of a conversation. The underlying technology, based on voice biometrics, uses a customer’s unique voice print to automatically confirm their identity. NICE’s Seamless Passive Enrollment process uses previous call recordings to automatically enroll customers in the program, making this another fundamental element in reducing customer effort.
Miki Migdal, President, NICE Enterprise Product Group, said, “NICE is committed to the core values of the FIDO Alliance to improve the customer experience throughout the authentication process. This includes moving away from passwords and towards customer-centric methods that reduce customers’ effort while ensuring their protection. Regardless of how consumers choose to interact with organizations along the customer journey – whether by phone, company website, online chat, or face-to-face at the branch – organizations must get closer to their customers so that they can remove service barriers and provide an exceptional experience.”
