Natural Language Understanding - Supporting voice and digital-based customer solutions

What customers mean, not just what they say

Nuance Natural Language Understanding (NLU) serves as a foundation for self-service solutions that deliver amazing flexibility, efficiency and unbeatable customer satisfaction.

Understand your customers, naturally

A core technology behind our conversational IVR and virtual assistant solutions, NLU enables smarter and more efficient applications that can quickly route callers and enhance the customer experience throughout the entire self-service engagement.

Natural language understanding empowers users to interact with systems and devices in their own words without being constrained by a fixed set of responses. It helps systems like the IVR or virtual assistants better understand a human’s words because it can recognize a wider variety of responses, even if it has never heard them before.

As a leader in NLU technology, Nuance brings unparalleled expertise to deliver improved routing accuracy, shorter calls and the know-how to turn caller intent data into a more conversational, intelligent self-service experience.
