Phone conversations are one of the most powerful voice of the customer data sources at your disposal. In these interactions, your customers are telling you exactly what they want and how to make them happy. Invoca uses AI to capture VoC analytics from phone conversations at scale, giving you the insights you need to meet your customers’ changing needs and preferences.

Collecting customer feedback can be a challenging task, especially when you’re dealing with large volumes of data. It can be time-consuming and expensive to capture data from multiple sources, such as surveys, social media, and customer support channels. Invoca eliminates the manual work of capturing VoC data by automatically recording, transcribing, and analyzing all of your phone calls.
It can be incredibly time-consuming to sift through mountains of voice of the customer data, trying to identify patterns and trends. That’s why Invoca uses AI to do the heavy lifting and identify trends from your phone calls at scale.
With Invoca Signal AI Studio, you can get out-of-the-box algorithms or train your own custom algorithms to detect conversion events, call outcomes, and other important conversational topics as soon as they happen. You can stream and activate your conversation data across hundreds of platforms as soon as the call ends to optimize bidding strategies, build targeting audiences, and enrich CRM and CDP data.
Powered by unsupervised machine learning, Invoca Signal Discovery automatically groups customer conversations into topics so you can easily identify trends from tens of thousands of conversations and take action on them in real time.
Integrating data from multiple sources can be a difficult task, as each data source may have a different format, structure, or quality. This can lead to data inconsistencies, errors, or duplications, which can affect the accuracy of the analysis. Invoca solves this problem by turning phone conversations into structured data and integrating it with your existing tools and workflows.
Invoca offers no-code integrations, which make it quick and easy for teams to activate voice of the customer analytics in their tech stack, without developer resources or custom code builds.

In addition, you can build lookalike audiences based high-value callers to scale your results.
Invoca’s AI automatically detects trends, so you don’t need to manually listen to call recordings to find them yourself.
