AUTHORETE AUTOMATES CRM USING SPEECH RECOGNITION.
Now, with Authorete from The Haley Enterprise, sales and service professionals can manage the knowledge automated within their decision-support systems and Web sites -- without programmer intervention. They can even dictate how they solve problems, answer questions, qualify prospects and close sales using everyday speech. Authorete (pronounced "authority") automatically generates the rules that implement the managed knowledge and executes them within decision support systems and personalized Web sites.
"Simplifying the way a business implements decision-making significantly improves its ability to keep pace in the increasingly dynamic and competitive global marketplace," said Paul Haley, president of The Haley Enterprise, a provider of artificial intelligence for knowledge management and automation. "Our technology streamlines business process automation by eliminating the need for programmers to re-code, re-test, and re-release software every time a business learns or changes."
"An e-retailer, for example, applies numerous rules in cross-selling to customers. An automated system recommends what products to offer a prospective customer on the basis of the rules programmed into it," said Haley. "Rules, however, have to be frequently updated to keep up with product upgrades and launches, competitor moves, and changes in the marketplace. With most knowledge management systems, whenever a policy changes, a programmer has to gather the knowledge from decision-makers and reduce it to computer code so that the system can use it."
With Authorete, once a knowledge engineer has worked with business people to capture knowledge and build the knowledge base, changing rules becomes as simple as Simon says. Employees who possess knowledge can create and update rules quickly by typing or dictating simple instructions using normal everyday language.
"Businesses benefit because it takes less time to automate and change business processes, programming costs fall precipitously, and automatically generated logic is inherently more efficient and reliable," said Haley. "And the whole process of dictating business policies as English sentences becomes so natural that speech actually becomes the preferred input mechanism, not just a gee-whiz feature."
