  • There are three key areas for cost savings that we will review in this presentation – all related to increased automation. They are: Reduced agent time in verification Increased containment Reduced PIN resets Companies may also consider: An increase in security, resulting in reduced fraud. (We won’t be quantifying fraud in this presentation). Improved customer service due to providing a more convenient means of identification.

  • 2. The Pain: Enterprise Password Challenges Challenge #1: Lower costs at the IT help desk Challenge #2: Increase security for password resets Challenge #3: Increase efficiency by enabling self-help The Solution: The Nuance Password Reset Application
  • 3. Introducing the Employee Productivity Suite - A building block approach to introducing speech Flat File, LDAP, etc PBX/IVR Speech-Enabled Employee Directory EPS Base Unit
    • Nuance Employee Productivity Suite
    • EPS base unit automatically synchronizes with corporate employee directory
    • Leverages the fact that every company has an employee directory but aren’t harnessing the true power this directory can bring.
  • 4. EPS: The foundation for supporting speech base applications to increase organizational communications and business processes.

    • Increasing costs of handling very repetitive IT tasks
      • such as employee password resets. .
    • Legislation (Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA…) is requiring a more accountable IT infrastructure
      • usually means having passwords issued at regular intervals.
    • This leads to more and more password reset requests, overloading the IT team
    The need for Automated Password Reset (APR) comes from…
  • 6. The need for Automated Password Reset (APR) comes from…
    • Quantity of passwords constantly increasing
    • Dramatic increase in calls to Help Desk
      • More calls + longer call duration = additional staffing
      • Help Desk costs are spiraling
      • Mission critical applications require staff on 7x24 basis
      • High turnover necessitates constant training of new agents
      • Total cost of live agents increasing
    • Security concerns demand much stronger caller authentication
    “ Approximately 30% of calls to the IT help-desk are password-related, and manual password resets cost an average of $10 to $17 each." – The Gartner Group/Frost & Sullivan
  • 7. Speech-enabled APR The Benefits:
    • Decrease calls to support staff
      • Automate the tasks required to service password resets
      • No agents…. just your voice and a phone!
      • Easy-to-follow prompts
    • Secure voice biometric front-end allow users to authenticate themselves and reset their own passwords
      • Leverages your current security environment
      • Ensures strong password policies and discipline
      • Ensures Corporate authentication protocols are followed
    • Integrated with password reset packages and back-end systems
    • Very Compelling ROI!
  • 8. APR Step by step…The Caller Experience 1 2 3 The caller dials the password reset number and is prompted to say an identifying phrase, such as a phone number or a name. Phrase can be configured to meet any corporate policy The system compares the voice to the voiceprint on file for the caller . If the voiceprint matches, the system issues a new password to the caller
  • 9. APR how does it work? Behind the Scenes… 1 2 3 Powerful voice biometric algorithms are applied to caller’s voice, encrypting it and creating a mathematical, binary voice print that is unique to that person. This voice print serves as the “fingerprint” for that caller, using over 80 characteristics of the human voice. The caller’s voice is quickly and efficiently compared to the voice print on file, allowing users to progress further in the call flow once authorized The caller can choose which system to reset, and the appropriate connector handles the reset of the backend system, retrieving/setting the temporary password, and resetting the system at the same time. Other options such as expiry dates, strong password enforcement, and others are also possible

  • 13. The Value of APR
    • Dramatic cost savings in four key areas
      • Reduced agent time spent authenticating callers
      • Reduced agent time spent resetting PIN’s
      • Reduced agent time spent unlocking accounts
      • Keep entire call within the automated system
    • Average Cost Per Call Without Automation
      • Gartner Group, $10-13
      • Frost & Sullivan, $17
    • Average Cost Per Call With Automation
      • < $1.00
  • 14.
    • ~30% of all calls to the IT help desk are password related, and manual password resets costs on average $10-$13/reset (Gartner Group)
      • Brings down the cost to $1
      • Eliminate the need for IT Help Desk support for password resets
      • ROI in less than 1 year – often in less than 6 months!
    • Increase password security by leveraging powerful voice biometric verification technology to confirm caller identity.
      • Removing involvement of a live agent eliminates potential security risk.
      • Enforce legislation compliance while simplifying the process
    • Empower employees to manage their own network password without requiring IT support
      • Liberates IT staff to focus on more demanding service issues
    The results of APR Save Money 1 Improve Security 2 Increase Efficiency 3
  • 15. Thank You
  • 16. Quoting Questions for ROI
    • Please list the total number of employees presently working for the company that have a need to reset passwords, unlock accounts, reset PINs, etc.
    • How do users currently access the Help Desk to obtain assistance with a locked system?
    • How many Live Agents currently work on the internal Help Desk assisting employees with password reset, account unlocks and/or PIN or RSA Token reset issues?
    • What types of passwords & PIN resets and application unlocks do the Live Agents handle today?
    • What is the total annual call volume presently handled by the Help Desk for these type of password reset / account unlocks?
    • Please break down the annual call volume based upon specific password or PIN reset types, i.e.: Active Directory = 60%, RSA = 20%, Unix = 20%, etc
    • What passwords types do you envision being handled by the automated password reset system?
    • What is the estimated cost per call within your Help Desk?
    • What type of trouble ticket system so you presently utilize to open, monitor & close calls?
    • What types of security questions are currently being asked by the Live Attendants to security authenticate the caller prior to performing a password or PIN reset?
    • What other Security concerns/issues do you want Nuance to address?
