CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Oct 29, 2014) - Mattersight Corporation (NASDAQ: MATR), a leading provider of enterprise analytics, today announced its receipt of a newly issued patent related to its Predictive Behavioral Routing solution. On October 21, 2014, the United States Patent and Trademark Office issued to Mattersight U.S. Patent Number 8,867,733 entitled Real-Time Predictive Routing.

A previously granted Mattersight patent covers using caller personality identified from historical interactions to route phone calls. This new patent expands upon that patent to cover:

  • All types of incoming customer interactions, including phone calls, chats, emails, and sales leads
  • Predicting the personality type of the customer in real time
  • Configurable real-time management of agent workload

"We continue to be pleased with our expanding patent portfolio, now at twelve issued U.S. patents," said Kelly Conway, President and CEO of Mattersight Corporation, "There's a significant market opportunity in identifying and leveraging behavioral data to make every interaction better, and these patents are a valuable asset as we continue to grow this market."

Mattersight® Predictive Behavioral Routing identifies the optimal customer/employee pairing for each individual caller based upon communication styles, personality mapping, and behavioral characteristics. This information is utilized by the existing routing architecture to match customers with the best available employee, thus increasing the likelihood of a behavioral connection. As a result, companies are capable of driving an immediate 10%-25% reduction in costs, improvement in sales, reduction in attrition, improvement in first call resolution, or increase in customer satisfaction or Net Promoter Scores® (NPS).
