Results in Over 70% Reduction in Time and Costs to Simulate and Test Speech-Enabled Voice Self-Service for Airline Reservations; Ensures Successful Voice Upgrade and Deployment

Cyara Solutions, a pioneer of next-generation premise and cloud solutions for simulating, testing and monitoring interactive voice response (IVRs) and contact center systems and applications, today announced that US Airways, one of the United States’ leading airline carriers, implemented the Cyara Solution Suite to ensure the successful deployment and upgrade of their customer reservation and frequent flyer automated and assisted-service systems.

US Airways is now using Cyara to test and simulate callers’ experiences with airline reservation support as customers make new reservations, confirm or change flights and access preferred member mileage support in both self- and assisted-service scenarios. Initial results post Cyara implementation include significant time and resource savings on quality assurance (QA) test efforts; testing resource requirements dropped from 3 people testing over two to three days to one person in four hours using Cyara’s automated solution.

Several solutions were reviewed, and Cyara offered the most complete, mature solution for US Airways’ testing needs-- IVR simulation and testing; agent routing; and CTI simulation, testing and monitoring -- on non-proprietary hardware, at the right price point.

The successful deployment proves Cyara capable of handling US Airways’ requirements of end-to-end testing -- simulating a caller entering the voice system and traversing the established paths, exercising the data integration and agent routing.

The Cyara Solution Suite provides a complete suite of products for testing speech-enabled IVRs and contact center applications from initial deployment through subsequent modifications, fine-tuning and ongoing operations in production to ensure exemplary system operation and customer experience.

“We are extremely pleased US Airways is successfully using Cyara for their IVR and contact center simulation and testing needs,” says Alok Kulkarni, CEO, Cyara. “Their initial results in time and resource savings are consistent with what is experienced across our entire customer base. We view our selection and successful deployment at US Airways as a another big step in our continual efforts to address Fortune 500 companies’ customers’ experiences with self and assisted service,” says Kulkarni.
