How Does Call Transcription with Global Call Forwarding Work?

Once transcription is activated, this feature will automatically transcribe recorded calls and display them in a text format. As a call concludes, the recording goes through a transcription process to convert your entire conversation into text.

These transcriptions are listed in activity reports in the control panel and integrated into the GCF softphone. Those using our integrations will see links to both the recordings and their transcriptions automatically logged, offering convenient access.

You can also activate Translation to automatically translate these transcripts to your desired language.

Benefits of Transcribing Business Calls

Call Transcription from Global Call Forwarding harnesses the power of speech-to-text technology to enhance your team’s productivity and interaction with customers. Here’s how this feature transforms operational efficiencies across your organization:

How Teams Can Use Call Transcripts

By converting spoken words into written text, you can gain new actionable insights and improved outcomes across different departments in an organization.

Sales Teams: Sales teams can use these transcriptions to analyze customer feedback, refine sales pitches, improve objection handling, identify preferences, and improve closing techniques. Additionally, these insights can aid in personalizing future interactions and developing more targeted sales strategies.

Customer Support: Transcribing calls ensures that all customer complaints, queries, and feedback are documented in an accessible way. This aids in ensuring quality service, assessing agent performance, resolving disputes, maintaining regulatory compliance, and training new staff.

Marketing: Marketers can analyze these texts to understand customer sentiment towards products or services, effectiveness of current marketing strategies, and potential areas for campaign improvement. This direct feedback is invaluable for adjusting marketing messaging and language, planning new promotions, localizing content, and enhancing overall customer engagement.

Legal and Compliance: For industries where legal compliance and documentation are critical, such as finance and healthcare, call transcriptions can provide a reliable record of all telephonic communications. These records ensure transparency, help in meeting regulatory requirements, and protect against liabilities.
