Company History

After decades working as a contact center consultant and business leader, Mariano had seen the good, the bad, and the ugly of the industry, and he knew that something needed to change. He was tired of seeing representatives disengaged and customers frustrated. He wanted to make jobs in the contact center more interesting and engaging while also making the customer experience more satisfying and efficient. 

So, he brought together a group of individuals who shared his vision for a more human contact center experience. They started with a bold idea: that the humanness of an interaction could be measured by analyzing the rhythm and intonation of speech. And thus, Prosodica was born. 

The team used their collective expertise to develop interaction analytics software that could analyze the prosodics of a conversation to better understand the emotions and intentions behind the words. But they didn't stop there. They added AI to turn that understanding into dynamically generated coaching narratives to train representatives to be more engaged and empathetic. They were revolutionizing the way call centers operated. 

As they continued to innovate around their core solution, the team worked with progressive contact center enterprises to tackle their most challenging operational issues. They stressed the values of transparency, authenticity, and empowerment, always striving to bring more of the human touch to every interaction. 

Today, their software is used by call centers all over the world, making a tangible difference in the lives of both customers and representatives. Mariano and his team have created a tool that enhances human connections, improves employee engagement, and promotes sustainably efficient contact center operations. As they continue to grow and evolve, they remain committed to their mission of humanizing the call center experience.
