Codimite's Journey with Google Chirp Speech-to-Text Deployment

In today's fast-paced world, effective communication is key to success, especially in the realm of customer service. Enter Google Chirp Speech-to-Text, a cutting-edge speech recognition technology that's transforming the way businesses handle customer interactions. In this article, we'll explore the features, benefits, and practical implementation of Google Chirp within our client’s environment, shedding light on how it's revolutionizing communication processes and elevating the customer experience to new heights.

Let’s start with, what exactly is Google Chirp?

Google Chirp Speech-to-Text is an advanced speech recognition technology developed by Google, designed to accurately transcribe spoken words into text in real time. It harnesses the power of AI to understand and interpret natural language, making it an invaluable tool for call centers and customer service departments.

The main objectives of integrating Google Chirp Speech-to-Text for our client revolve around optimizing communication processes and enhancing customer service. Specifically, the client aims to achieve the following:

  1. Improved Communication Efficiency: By leveraging Chirp's real-time transcription capabilities, the client seeks to streamline communication between agents and customers, especially when dealing with diverse accents and languages.
  2. Enhanced Customer Service:The integration of Chirp enables agents to access relevant information swiftly, improving response times and overall customer satisfaction.

How does the Codimite team integrate Google Chirp?

The implemented process involved utilizing two distinct audio channels: one from the perspective of the receiver and the other from an agent. Two separate devices were employed to capture the audio, with each device integrated with Google's Chirp tools. The agent's voice was captured using a microphone, while the customer's (receiver's) voice was extracted from the machine they were operating. Both audio inputs were then transmitted to Chirp's endpoint for speech-to-text conversion. By integrating the API, the output field generated from the end user's speech was transformed into text format.

In practical terms, when a customer calls into our call center, our Call Center Agent Assist system springs into action. As the call begins recording, a window pops up for the agent, providing real-time transcription of the conversation. As the customer speaks, key phrases trigger the system to search through FAQs, providing relevant answers to the agent for immediate response. If the tool fails to accurately capture the customer's speech, the agent can manually input the inquiry, and the system will still provide relevant answers.

The adoption of Google Chirp has brought numerous benefits to our client’s operations:

  • It aids in ensuring effective communication, especially when customers speak with varying accents, as the transcription feature provides text alongside the conversation.
  • This aids agents in quickly locating answers and providing timely service. Real-time transcription also enables better call handling and fosters a positive customer experience.
  • One key enhancement is the integration of churn intent detection. By analyzing agent feedback and customer behavior during calls, the system can identify customers who may be at risk of churning.

Challenges the team faced while integrating Google Chirp:

  1. Single-Source Audio Capture: Initially, Chirp only captured the customer's voice within the desktop application. The team later enhanced it to capture both agent and customer voices as separate channels, enabling more comprehensive call analysis.
  2. Accent Recognition: Accurately capturing and understanding voices with diverse accents proved to be a hurdle. The team trained the models with various different accents within Chirp to handle this challenge.
  3. Call Start/End Detection: Chirp didn't automatically identify call start and end times. This led to the script continuing to run even after the call finished. The team addressed this by creating a separate Java application to integrate with the existing system and accurately detect call boundaries.

Going further with Speech-to-Text transcript:

Additionally, the team has planned to implement a skills-based routing system. Leveraging past transcript data and agent ratings, the system will direct customer calls to agents who are experts in specific fields or who consistently deliver high-quality service. This ensures that customers receive the best possible assistance and minimizes call resolution times

  1. Customers are connected with experts: Customers will be directed to agents with the specific knowledge and experience required to address their inquiries efficiently.
  2. Faster call resolution: Matching customers with the right agent from the start minimizes the need for transfers and speeds up issue resolution.

This skills-based routing system aims to significantly improve the customer experience by providing efficient and expert assistance.


Overall, the goal is to leverage Chirp to elevate the efficiency and effectiveness of customer service operations while maintaining a focus on delivering exceptional customer experiences.

With Codimite as a technical trusted partner, our client was able to confidently embark on this transformative journey towards enhancing communication processes, improving customer service capabilities, and achieving operational excellence with Google Chirp Speech-to-Text at the forefront. Receiving around 600 to 800 calls per day, this Google Chirp solution provides assistance by delivering 5 to 10 FAQ answers per call, further elevating the efficiency and effectiveness of customer service operations while maintaining a focus on delivering exceptional customer experiences.

Together with our clients, Codimite is poised to unlock new opportunities and elevate the standard of customer experience in the ever-evolving landscape of business communication
