Eckoh achieves contract renewal with O2

Three-year extension of contract for provision of speech recognition and web-based services


Eckoh, the UK's leading developer of speech recognition solutions for customer contact centres, announces the award of a three-year renewal of its contract with O2, the communications company, for the provision of services using a web-based solution and speech recognition technology.


The initial contract, announced in December 2004, was for an automated telephone-based service, which was extended to include an equivalent web offering in 2007. Under the current contract, Eckoh has enhanced its solution by deploying its PCI DSS compliant, EckohPAY product. Since its launch of the service in December 2004, the Company has handled over one million transactions on behalf of O2.


Nik Philpot, Chief Executive Officer of Eckoh, said: "O2 are one of Eckoh's longest standing clients, and we are extremely pleased that they feel we continue to provide them with the highest standard of service. This renewal demonstrates our success in developing our technology and expanding our portfolio to ensure that we are able to satisfy our clients evolving requirements. As we continue to broaden our offering - with speech, web, SMS and now smartphone solutions - we look forward to furthering our relationship with O2 and to providing them and their customers with industry-leading solutions."
