Hoboken, N.J., October 2, 2017 –
today announced that, with the implementation of
NICE Real-Time Authentication
, Permata Bank is the first domestic bank in Indonesia to introduce voice biometrics as part of its customer authentication protocol. NICE Real-Time Authentication (RTA), together with its process automation solution, will allow the financial institution to conduct secure and seamless voice authentication, improving customer service.
Permata Bank is a veteran NICE customer, already benefiting from its Quality and Workforce Management solutions, as well as real-time back office applications. More recently, the bank sought new ways to improve fraud prevention and increase the efficiency of its contact center, turning to NICE to address these challenges.
NICE's award winning
Real-Time Authentication (RTA) solution creates and utilizes one voice print for each caller to deliver quick and efficient customer service across all voice channels, with no customer effort required. Authentication takes place within the first few seconds of the call, and customers' issues are resolved during the natural flow of conversation, without them having to answer so many pesky security questions. This automated, rapid and transparent process will help Permata Bank deliver better service while improving the accuracy of its fraud prevention program.
Bianto Surodjo, Director of Consumer Banking at Permata Bank:
"Permata Bank's introduction of voice biometrics in the local banking industry positions us as a leader in financial services innovation throughout Indonesia. This is largely thanks to NICE's unique Fluent engine capability, which provides omnichannel authentication with a single voiceprint, which is a major advantage over competing solutions in the market."
Darren Rushworth, president of NICE APAC:
"We are excited to help Permata Bank become the first domestic bank in Indonesia to adopt voice biometrics technology in order to improve its service levels and cement its place as a market leader. Providing accurate and quick voice authentication, which is so crucial to all retail banking activities, is part of NICE's mission to reinvent customer service while ensuring absolute data security."
