Cyara Receives 2015 Speech Technology Excellence Award

Cyara Chat Honored for Exceptional Speech Technology, Bridging the Gap Between
Self-Service and Assisted Calls with a Well-Executed Chat Experience

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – June 15, 2015 — Cyara announced today that TMC, a global, integrated media company, has granted Cyara Chat (Testing) a 2015 Speech Technology Excellence Award. Cyara Chat Testing is a proactive, exception-based approach that bridges the gap between self-service and assisted calls with a well-executed chat experience.


The eleventh annual Speech Technology Excellence Award, presented by CUSTOMER Magazine, honors companies who have demonstrated innovation in speech technology solutions that improve the bottom line for their customers.

Industry research shows that 65% of customers using a self-service option will choose web chat if it is a convenient bridge between the self-service channel and waiting on the phone for an agent. Chat Testing alerts an organization to problems with chat interactions before their customers do, avoiding negative customer experiences and damage to the organization’s brand and bottom line.

Cyara Chat Testing emulates chat interactions ensuring an exceptional customer experience and includes:

  • Familiar interface and a minimal learning curve for Cyara customers
  • Sequential replay of Chat screens from the customer’s perspective to research issues
  • Scalable from the largest to the smallest chat environments
  • Script building tools for both customer and agent side testing
  • Data-storage for MS-SQL and Oracle

“Cyara Chat Testing continues the Cyara tradition of giving customers the easiest-to-use, yet most powerful testing software available. Incorporating innovative features that our customers have told us are important to them, Chat Testing is fully integrated with the Cyara Platform, the customer experience market-leading platform today,” said Alok Kulkarni, CEO, Cyara.

More information on Cyara Chat Testing is available online.

“Cyara has demonstrated to the editors of CUSTOMER magazine that its product is both innovative and a leader in the speech technology industry. Cyara Chat Testing has proven its superior capabilities and has ultimately improved the bottom line for its customers,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC.

The Speech Technology Excellence Awards will be published in the June 2015 edition of Customer Magazine.
