Empirix announced the availability of enhanced Quality Assurance testing services for contact centers and mobile app developers that are using voice prints to improve application security and create a more hands-free user experience.

With Empirix Testing as a Service (ETaaS), companies can more effectively validate authentication and enrollment applications that utilize voice biometrics to authorize users, as well as the voice response and mobile applications they front-end. By testing performance and identity fraud scenarios prior to deployment with ETaaS, companies can speed deployment cycles, cut project costs and preempt customer-impacting issues.

“Voice-based authentication of callers is key to secure, trusted customer care interactions,” said Dan Miller, senior analyst and founder, Opus Research. “Enterprises must make sure that the applications for voiceprint enrollment as well as ongoing fraud detection are fast and friction-free. Testing can detect and help correct the sorts of faults in callflows and workflows that can give rise to poor caller experience.”

ETaaS combines expert services for designing and developing test plans, as well as industry-leading Empirix Hammer Test technology to execute these tests. To evaluate applications using voice prints, Empirix tests both authorized and non-authorized user scenarios. Key features include:

Needs assessment and test design
Voice file creation and analysis
Automated, predictable and repeatable test scripts
Media and voice quality analysis
Baseline, soak, load and stress test execution
Reports detailing issues for rapid correction


“In the era of the ‘always on’ consumer, companies must find new ways to delight and successfully engage with their customers at all times. Creating new, more convenient and more secure ways to communicate is an important part of this strategy,” said Tim Moynihan, vice president of Empirix. “We work with companies as they launch innovative customer contact solutions, helping them assess real-world performance and expected customer experience. We are including voice biometrics testing in our service offerings to ensure that our clients can fully evaluate the wide range of communications options today’s consumers demand.”
