Speechmatics, a UK leader in any-context speech recognition technology announces its partnership with Nuix, the creator of innovative software that transforms data into actionable intelligence.

Together, Speechmatics and Nuix are bringing highly accurate, secure speech recognition technology to businesses through an end-to-end software solution.

Within this single platform, organizations can process, assess, review and action data quickly and accurately at scale. With digital communication on the rise there are increasing amounts of voice data for businesses to collect and action. With Speechmatics, on-premises customers can use Nuix Workstation to process audio and promote that data to Nuix Discover either on-premises or to Nuix Discover SaaS. Speech recognition technology is essential to converting unstructured voice data into text, enabling analysis and actionable insights of data. Historically, voice data has been time-consuming and expensive to review for an investigation due to the format of audio or video files.

It is no longer an excuse to not provide a full 360-degree of an event or incident due to the accuracy and speed of automatic speech recognition technology. Adding Speechmatics’ transcription to the Nuix Technology Partner program, helps organizations streamline the data collection process, mitigates risks, speeds up resolutions and keeps data secure through on-premises deployments.

said Chris Pogue, Head of Partner Connect at Nuix.

“Combined with Nuix’s broad support for difficult data types, human-generated data, powerful analytics and fast document review, we continue to transform the market by co-creating increasingly valuable solutions with our partners.

As part of any review, the need to sift through large volumes of data quickly to identify the key aspects of the case is imperative, voice file types have been a challenging data source but the combination of Nuix and Speechmatics delivers this,” said Tom Rimmer, Senior Executive at Speechmatics.

“Only in the last few years has speech-to-text technology truly become accurate enough for businesses to utilize as part of their corporate governance strategies. It is essential that the review process of any investigation is accurate but fast.

Partnering with Nuix has enabled us to offer our leading speech recognition technology to elevate the task of voice data review and we couldn’t be more excited to be working with the leading provider of eDiscovery software to help extract the truth from businesses voice data.”
