Teleperformance · 01.25.2022

TP Datathon is a global contest that promotes analytics culture at Teleperformance and creates winning themes for our clients, operations, and support teams through best-in-class analytics tools, resources, and models. Open to Teleperformance Team Leads and above from all verticals and departments, the contest’s key objectives focus on harnessing Teleperformance’s high-tech, high-touch approach using an analytics concept. Through TP Datathon, Teleperformance can recognize and reward our homegrown talent, whose winning ideas leverage analytics to boost business performance. TP Datathon also enriches the analytics pipeline for our key clients, operations, and internal support team.

 

Teleperformance is excited to announce the winning entries in our recently concluded TP Datathon, which was made even more insightful and exciting through our partnerships with companies that are leading the way in the technology and CX industries: CallMiner, a software company that specializes in AI-fueled conversation analytics; Verint, a global leader in customer engagement; Microsoft, a multinational technology corporation, and NICE, a software solutions leader that improves business performance through advanced analytics.

 

To share key knowledge on analytics and its real-life applications in today’s industries, we featured our partners in a series of webinars presented before the contest. CallMiner tackled contact analytics and how to build a conversation analytics program. On the other hand, Verint discussed a holistic and comprehensive interaction analytics approach to capture and bring together information from across the enterprise, interpret it in the context of business objectives, and use it to drive better performance and automate quality management. Meanwhile, Microsoft presented business intelligence and digital transformation in manufacturing, E-commerce/retail, banking and FSI through advanced analytics and AI, powered by Azure, over multiple expert sessions. Finally, NICE put the spotlight on Nexidia, its solution that turns both structured and unstructured data into valuable and actionable information.
