Avaya Closes Spoken Acquisition

Avaya has closed its acquisition of Spoken Communications, the AI driven Contact Centre as a Service (CCaaS) solutions and customer experience management applications. The Spoken platform accelerates Avaya’s growth in cloud-based solutions and provides a highly scalable cloud platform for customers of all sizes.

Spoken brings a transformative platform with many built-in features that today require third-party tools. This greatly simplified model will make it easier for customers and partners to do business with Avaya. With over 170 patents and patent applications, Spoken’s intellectual property will push Avaya’s journey into Big Data, Machine Learning and AI.

According to Avaya, several flexible cloud solutions are market-ready today. Customers will also benefit from Spoken’s specialised agent quality software applications and services, and Spoken’s IntelligentWire contact center automation solutions. IntelligentWire uses AI and deep learning technologies on live voice conversations to reduce after-call work, drive more intelligent responses and gain deeper insight into customer sentiment and experience.

“This acquisition is the latest example of how Avaya is now moving at cloud speed and investing for the future to provide our customers and partners with the innovative cloud solutions they need. We welcome the members of the Spoken team to the Avaya family, and look forward to building great success together,” said Jim Chirico, president and CEO of Avaya.
