Considering the various challenges over the past few years in the franchise automotive retailers, the ability to glean insights from customer interactions has become increasingly important to dealers. Customers who are stuck with their aging vehicle due to high interest rates or the continued new vehicle inventory shortage are looking for a trusted dealer to service their existing vehicle to keep it safe, reliable, and on the road.  The result is very high call volumes into the Service Center at dealerships across the country.

Ensuring that every phone call is handled professionally has traditionally been a time-consuming and resource-intensive task, but with the advent of Artificial Intelligence (AI), companies like CallRevu are fundamentally transforming how we analyze calls. In this article, we’ll delve into how AI is revolutionizing the field of call analytics, with CallRevu leading the charge.

The Traditional Challenges of Call Analysis

Before AI came into play, analyzing calls was a manual and often inefficient process. Businesses had to rely on human agents to transcribe and review recordings, a process that was both labor-intensive and prone to errors. Extracting meaningful insights from these calls was a Herculean task, and the results were often incomplete and subjective.  Additionally, by the time a human agent identified a mishandled phone call and triggered an alert to management at the dealership it was many times too late for management to connect with the customer and make things right – the customer had already contacted another dealership.
