Bank Leumi uses Nuance Voice Biometrics

Nuance offers an authentication solution that perfectly suits the security needs of our contact center. Our customers love the fact that they don’t have to remember the answers to trick questions, like the fourth letter of their mother’s maiden name, and we love the fact that the calls are shorter and totally focused on prompt banking transactions. Nuance’s team provided us with exceptional support at every stage of deployment.
