Smart Call Transcription with Aloware's Smart Transcriber: Overview and Benefits

Aloware Smart Transcription converts call recordings to text, allowing easy review, categorization, and keyword detection. It enhances customer service and provides valuable insights.

Call monitoring is a standard part of many businesses with the overall goal of providing a great customer service experience.

However, call recordings alone as a call monitoring tool are not a comprehensive solution because...

  • listening to a large number of calls is tedious and time-consuming

  • inconsistent understanding of important topics and concerns

  • requires manual work for referencing specific recordings

  • no aggregate reporting or tracking

Aloware Smart Transcription allows you to convert your calls to text. The tool allows you to

  • transcribe call recordings accurately

  • organize the information of the call

  • automatically categorize the call

  • tag, detect, and highlight keywords within the call

  • provide an overall impression of the call

Smart Transcription transcribes calls with a call duration greater than 15 seconds.
