AUTHORETE AUTOMATES CRM USING SPEECH RECOGNITION.Systems that automate To turn a set of manual steps into an operation that goes by itself. See automation. decisions help businesses more accurately and cost- effectively service customers, qualify prospects, and guide buyers to the right products. But up to now, the limitation of these systems has been that adding knowledge accumulated from experience, whether by sales or service personnel, requires hours of programming.
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 (1) A hardware device used to customize a programmable logic chip such as a PAL, GAL, EPROM, etc. See PROM programmer.

They can even dictate how they solve problems, answer questions, qualify prospects and close sales using everyday speech.

"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 This is a list of programmers notable for their contributions to software, either as original author or architect, or for later additions.

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 pre·cip·i·tous

The Haley Enterprise (www.haley.com) automates the management and use of business knowledge through artificial intelligence technologies including rules-based programming, case-based reasoning An AI problem solving technique that catalogs experience into "cases" and matches the current problem to the experience. Such systems are easier to maintain than rule-based expert systems, because changes require adding new cases without the complexity of adding new rules. , natural language processing Natural language processing

The goal is to enable natural languages, such as English, French, or Japanese, to serve either as the medium through which users interact with computer systems such as , and speech understanding.
